The blogosphere is evolving! This post is about one such evolution which I happened to stumble upon today.

Most of today's blogs are of a traditional columnar layout with one main (or post) column and one or more sidebars. This layout is what you get in pretty much every post. However, the print industry, especially the magazines, have been making good use of the basic design principles such as balance, color and fonts, to add variety to individual articles.

Some very creative bloggers out there have drawn upon this idea of varied article layouts, on to the blog posts and the result is termed blogazines. Read more about this at and also some tips for creative blog post design at

This is definitely not for the average blogger as it requires lot of design skills and also effort to finish each article layout from scratch. However, I found the idea very interesting and thought you would like it too.
