Blog Template 01 by rthaut Blog Template 01 by rthaut
I have never really done much design work for blog layouts. Ryno Studios is currently powered by WordPress, but it is nothing like a blog in terms of structure and layout. I was thinking about that the other day; I can code WordPress designs into themes, but I haven't designed any blogs. So I realized that I should probably practice making designs that follow the typical blog layout.

I love blue designs, and I really wanted to create a blue/green design. This actually came out very close to an idea I had in my head a few days ago, so I am happy about that as well.

This took much longer than my recent templates, mostly because there is so much that needs to go into a blog it seems. I tried to style as many things as possible to show the design is quite modular.

I still think the footer looks a little simple/plain, but I don't have any ideas for that. It certainly fits the design, but I feel I should give it a little more "oomph."

If you have any suggestions, please let me know, especially since this is my first true blog layout.

This design is for sale; contact me for more information.

I was wondering why all the templates for blogs Ive seen have been written with examples in latin.  Can you explain please?  Its a very nice design though!

I'm a complete newbie to blogging...looking for guidance, templates, examples, anything I can find to help me to begin. I love and appreciate the info. you have provided! I have to explore a bit more before I feel comfortable enough to create a blog with all of the apparent components necessary. Will be traveling back here until I'm more confident! Thanks for your help!

Amazing job. As expected. Love the colors... I'm a huge blue fan as well.

Except for one thing... I can't read latin.

AHAHAHAHAAAAA... if I had a penny for every time I've heard that one. :sarcasm:

Actually, I can read Latin. I took 3 years of it in public school. Well, actually, I should be able to read it, but all I can remember is "semper ubi sub ubi" which roughly translates to "always where under where." The funniest part about that is that my teacher never taught us that. :)

In all seriousness, though, thanks for the support. I love the colors, but I am still concerned with the footer. I want to do a portfolio design using these colors, as I feel I can do them more justice, especially if I use them on a layout style I am well-practiced in. Or I might rework this design later once I have better ideas for blog footers and blog designs in general.

Thanks. I usually do portfolios and sites for small businesses, so this was a fun change of pace.
