Look at These Gorgeous Blogs

We’ve added a user showcase where you can view stunning customizations made by people just like you. From complete redesigns with CSS to adding pizzazz with Custom Fonts to clever use of options like background and header, this showcase will spark your imagination and inspire creativity.

Discover details about what each showcase blog is doing with WordPress.com themes and customizations by clicking a thumbnail to see a colophon-style list of credits on the left.

Colophon-style Credits on WordPress.com

We’ve also updated footer links so blog owners can show off the types of customizations they’ve made and visitors can learn more by clicking the “Customized” link in WordPress.com footers. A “Customized” link will appear next to the theme name for blogs that are using Custom Design tools like fonts or CSS.

Things we like to see when looking for showcase-worthy customizations are blogs with good traffic, beautiful design, well-written articles or stunning images, recent content updates, and involvement helping out in our CSS Customization forum.

Be inspired, customize your blog and make it that perfect place for your creations.

    This is great! So many beautiful blogs out there. How can I put my blog on this showcase?

    • Sheri

      There isn’t a way for you to add your blog directly. Blogs are picked based on a number of factors including things like good traffic, beautiful design, well-written articles or stunning images, recent content updates, and involvement helping out in our CSS Customization forum.

    Like they used to say, you could get (the first mass-produced car, the Ford Model T) in any color as long as it was black. That was a plenty good start, but we’re even more glad that they didn’t stop there! Well, except maybe for the Secret Service, but who’d want to keep their blog a secret?

  13. ptaheru777

    Very nice, I’m a sucker for exceptionally creative fonts; these blogs really do inspire.

  14. rconnor1967

  28. kenneth@buddha jeans

    Great blog design, and prove that the theme is not the most important factor making a blog, add your own style, write about interesting things you know well and use 2 hour more research on your post before posting. But when it come down to it, content is king. Looks awesome. Con grat. Kenneth

  42. Guaymi

  43. Val

    This is brilliant bar one thing – would it not be a good idea to say beneath each which theme it is? Please do that, it would be so helpful! :)

    • Sheri

      We’ll look into it. Thanks for the feedback!

    • Sheri

      I have one quick update: we are planning to add filters to the sidebar so you will be able to filter by theme. We’ll also see if we can find a way to note the theme name in the showcase grid somehow too if we can.

  44. baeile1234

    I really enjoyed this! How exactly did you choose the blogs you featured? Mine isn’t totally -amazing- as I don’t have even a basic understanding of CSS or HTML or anything, but I’d at least like to be in the running lmao. :)

    • Sheri

      The blogs in the showcase are ones that have crossed our path while reviewing popular sites or by involvement helping out in our CSS Customization forum. Not every blog we find will be included in the showcase, but we love seeing everyone continue to work on site customizations!
