Chapter 5. Blog Design 101 > Elements of a Blog

Elements of a Blog

Some elements are common to many blogs, so there is a kind of design precedent you can follow when you first start out. A classic blog design has a header, a simple date design, reader friendly body copy, easily discernable links, some modules in columns, and a footer. Each of these classic blog design elements is covered in more detail in the sections that follow. Sometimes it’s great to have something to follow, just so that you can break the rules. Jason Kottke’s blog, which is shown in Figure 5.3, has all the elements of a classic blog design.
