Showcase of Excerpts in Blog Design

Many blogs are using excerpts to display content on the front page. The use of excerpts gives designers a little bit more freedom and some opportunity to create an attractive and unique front page. In this post we’ll showcase for blog front pages that are using excerpts.

  • Web Design Hobart, November 22, 2009

    Nicely written article – some great sites there too! Thanks!

  • Web Gallery, November 23, 2009

    Very cool. Work Awesome is my fav.

  • Mark A, November 23, 2009

    Ooohhh very nice designs! Really like the one on workawesome and gomediazine too. Are these WordPress themes or what?

    But going to the subject matter, I’ve been looking for a WP plugin to NOT show the whole post but instead just snippets, or for this matter, excerpts. Seems that’s the keyword I’ve been looking for. LOL! Duh me… =P

  • Mark A, November 24, 2009

    Yeah it seems excerpts are not the answer to my problem after I researched on it. Also WP has a native or default excerpt implementation of its own. I’m gonna check out that link you gave me. Thanks a bunch!

  • Misha, November 26, 2009
