Review of 3 Blogs

In the last post, I had a tutorial on home page blog design, specifically the first page of your home page. I went over how important this page is since it is an introduction to your whole blog. With this video I want to give examples of what I think is a good blog design, what you should avoid, and what one of the most popular (23.3 mil page views/month) blog’s home page includes.

The three blogs I mention in the video are The Good: The Cotton Wife The Bad: Kids’ Cattle, and The Ultimate: The Pioneer Woman.

Is there a blog that you think has a killer home page design, your own maybe? and tell us why you like it so much.

  • Judi,
    I am trying to set up a new website page and trying to follow your tuition videos, do you think it should have my picture on the front or just a picture that i can change every now and then according to what the blogs are bout. I would like your advice.


    • I take it that you are meaning the brief about me widget. If you are intending the blogs to be inter-related where readers will be sent between blogs, then you should use the same profile picture. That way people will come to put your blogs and you together. If the blogs are independent, you can use different profile pictures.
      Also I am a big proponent of profile pictures being a picture of you; not the dog or even a cute child. It should be you.

      Good question. Keep them coming.

  • Thanks for the info! Thought for a moment you were going to use my page for the bad! 😉

    • I couldn’t do that to one of my featured farmers.
