26 Creative and Inspirational Dark Colored Blogs


Mostly webmasters prefer light color combinations in the themes they use and especially white is the most prefered color.But in the last few years,we see many dark colored blogs and i think if the design of the blog is creative,it attracts visitor’s attention more.You know white colored backgrounds are always used by black text but as you can see below,you can use the text in many colors and maybe this can be an advantage for advertisement links.(I tried in some of my blogs and the results were good:))

While i was surfing last month,i’ve collected some dark colored especially black colored blogs(some websites also with blogs sections) and i share them with you.
