40 increíbles diseños de blogs personales

Los diseñadores han logrado, gracias a las diferentes técnicas de diseño, a las nuevas ideas y a la ayuda de las propiedades CSS3, impulsar, en los últimos años, los diseños de sus blogs a unos niveles que nunca antes se habían visto. Pero a pesar de esto, es cierto que el arte de los blogs personales, en muchos casos, está disminuyendo, posiblemente por la aparición de servicios como Facebook, Twitter, Posterous, Tumblr y WordPress, y servicios de porfolio como Carbonmade, Deviantart y Behance, que han hecho que personalizar el diseño de los blogs no sea tan necesario.

Pero a pesar de esto, Speckyboy ha encontrado y seleccionado los 40 mejores diseños de blogs personales que existen actualmente en la red.

“One idea at a time. Preferably one you love.”

“I’m in Love Idea”

In my social life, I’ve only been in love once and it didn’t work out in the end due to long distance and bad timing. In business, I’ve been in love twice. Once with TypeFrag and now a second time with Carbonmade. Just as in your social life, when you meet someone great you get this gut feeling and your stomach fills up with butterflies, the same is true when an idea clicks with you. You fall in love. Your stomach churns and you can’t sleep at night, all because you want to work on the idea so much — the equivalent being wanting to be with someone all the time.

If you’re thinking “I’m not really into you”, then you should pack away your thoughts and wait for the next idea. If you’re at all successful developing your idea then you’ll be fully involved with it for at least five to seven years. You don’t want to be invested in something that you don’t care about enough to commit to for that long. And most importantly, you won’t be able to give an idea your best work and attention if you’re not in love. Your relationship will suffer and, ultimately, die out.


"One idea at a time. Preferably one you love." Good and bad ideas are not so black and white. Spencer Fry of Carbonmade discusses how to get that “I’m in Love Idea” and execute it well.

Coming up with ideas isn’t too difficult, but finding the right one can be a challenge. Even worse, following an idea that just isn’t good enough can lead to disaster. Focusing on one idea at a time can help you weed out the bad:

“Good ideas are a dime a dozen” or “execution is everything” are popular phrases entrepreneurs roll off their tongues when asked, “Do ideas matter?” While I provisionally agree with both statements, it’s just not so black and white. Both phrases are rather misleading. Ideas don’t simply materialize out of thin air, and not every idea is worth your time. As popular as it is to dismiss the thought of coming up with a good idea — you know, because it requires sitting around, thinking and suspending activity — it’s critical to focus on one idea at a time, preferably your “I’m in Love Idea.”

Without that focus, Fry suggests you’re in danger of entertaining ideas that seem good but don’t mean all that much to you. If you’re not sure—if you’re not in love with the idea—you’re better off letting it go. Whether you break up with your idea or fall madly in love with it, when considering the idea don’t let it just sit in your head. As Ze Frank points out, it’s better to let the ideas out and see what happens rather than keeping them in your head (where they’ll turn into brain crack).

But what about execution?

While execution is far from everything — despite the nice ring to the slogan — a better way to phrase it would be that an “I’m in Love Idea” isn’t going to do the work for you. Leer más ““One idea at a time. Preferably one you love.””
