As you remember, not a long time ago we have completely redesigned FlashMint website. Now, as you see, we have our blog redesigned as well, so that it perfectly fits our new website looks.
Well, what has been changed? The blog used to be two columns right sidebar, now, as you see, it is three columns. The tag cloud is still here at the right side and the main navigation is now to the left. The blog color is changed from green to white. And the header! Do you like it? I’m completely in love with it. Our designers did a great job.
Well, in addition here are some inspiring blog designs for you to have a look at. They all are very different but the creative touch and artistic approach unites them into a great resource of inspiration.

The end of year 2008 has shown some new tendencies in web design that tend to develop further in 2009. The glossy buttons, lustrous looks are left for business websites, more and more artistic web sites are designed with a touch of hand made. Photo galleries, design studios, art-connected websites, music bands personal pages tend to have elements of grunge and vintage, collages and sketches.

Grungy designs have been on stage for quite a long time, but this year more and more music websites and blogs will be designed with lavished backgrounds and dirty looks.
