A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.

It seems like these days everyone is using the same old blog template or the same tired Wordpress theme (although I've seen some pretty amazing Tumblr themes). Regardless, I'm a sucker for blogs that don't actually look like your average blog and stray from the formula. The end result is what some are calling a 'blogazine'. Enjoy.

Dell now considers Twitter to be a 'significant new channel' in which to reach customers. If Twitter landed me a couple million in sales I'm guessing that I'd think it would be pretty significant as well.

A lof of valid points in this writeup along with some great examples of web designers who are pushing the envelope in this area. I'm loving the deviation from their normal layout just to push the article's main concept.

A list of the fifty most influential bloggers of 2009 thus far.A list of the fifty most influential bloggers of 2009 thus far.

I guess I should be reading more blogs because I've never heard of some of these names until reading this list just now. That's ok though, I'm willing to bet none of them have heard of me either - so it's a wash.
