20 Clean and Light Personal Blogs

Given the ongoing popularity of grunge design, it can be easy to forget about all the well-designed clean blogs out there. I’ve compiled 20 clean and light blogs to inspire you to try something simpler today.

All of these blogs have a great attention to detail, and all doubtlessly involved a lot of thought on the part of the designer. However, the overall results are very clean and basic, meaning a comforting, usable web experience for all. I encourage you to check out all the blogs in this list and subscribe to your favorite feeds!

Also check out the bottom of this post for some great tutorials on creating your own clean blog design.
