Top 10 Ways to Uglify Your Blog

Over on, you can find a funny post on the “Top 10 Ways to Uglify Your Blog“. While I don’t agree with everything listed, I find it interesting to see other people’s point of view on what makes a good or bad blog design, especially since I don’t find Christian’s design all that appealing.

He mentions things like:

  • Orange XML/RSS Buttons
  • Long Blogrolls
  • XHTML/CSS Buttons

Check out the list, and let me know what you think makes a nice looking or ugly looking blog. (Please don’t use BloggingPro as an example…unless its for the nice looking side)

    Hi David. More than anything else, the post is an excellent demonstration of contrarian blogging if there ever was. ;-) Cheers!

    I agree with everything except the photo of you. I kinda like seeing the person behind the writing. It gives me a sense of knowing them.

    (Yea, I’m hypocritical on that point as well as the fact that I do have ads on a few pages, but they are only on posts which I have proof people are coming and leaving quickly.)
