A Minimalist Single Column Blog

Isn’t it refreshing? One, single column of beautiful content surrounded by airy whitespace. The demise of the sidebar has resulted in some great new design possibilities and we’re jumping in feet first. Starting with this purposely minimalist blog design. We’re not lazy, we swear, we just love big, huge photos smack in the middle of a white page. Don’t you? Especially when it’s your lovely work and thoughtfully crafted words locking eyes with readers.

Now, we’re not bloggers (not lately anyway), so we won’t go on and on about our love for a great single column blog. Instead we’ll simply add in some dummy text to help you visualize and move on to the next item on our to-do list. How about another photo for good measure as well?

DESIGN IS A FUNNY WORD. SOME PEOPLE THINK DESIGN MEANS HOW IT LOOKS. BUT OF COURSE, IF YOU DIG DEEPER, IT’S REALLY HOW IT WORKS.

Pellentesque eu nisi in nisi aliquam fringilla sagittis sed lorem. Pellentesque facilisis vitae magna nec elementum. Suspendisse eu gravida velit. Vestibulum non fringilla eros. Duis tincidunt felis ornare rhoncus feugiat. Nullam dapibus quam vitae posuere vestibulum. Pellentesque non sodales velit. Sed fringilla risus eu purus dignissim efficitur, fusce euismod ipsum vel iaculis accumsan.

Big, Bold Full-Width Blog Images

If you read our other post about how much we like single column blogs, then you’ll also know that we like great full width photos that demand your attention. So here are some more to really get our point across. It’s kind of like a gallery; calming, inspiring and a tad intimidating (in a good way) all at the same time.
