Life has been super crazy lately. I’m enrolled in an awesome blogging course put on by Jon Marrow and the folks at SmartBlogger.com. I’m learning really amazing things. The course is really intense, however, which doesn’t leave much time for other things. But I always have time to design!
If I go too long without designing something, I go a bit crazy (ok, crazier).
With my blogging course, I didn’t want to try and balance working on a new WordPress theme as well. Blogger is a bit simpler so I decided to work on a few new Blogger designs during the 12 week course.
The first design is a whole new layout with some cool new features. Meet Anaise (an-eye-ees)!
Anaise is minimal and clean, black and white Blogger design with a unique home page layout. The header is a split menu (left menu + right menu with logo in between). The header shrinks on scroll.
The slider is a great way to showcase your most popular or recent posts. Below the slider you can add Promo Boxes. There is also a widget area to add a custom-styled Popular Posts widget or even a Shop My Closet or LTK widget.
The home page posts are laid out in a unique cross-column layout. This layout is great for displaying your posts in a compact but clean manner.
The footer is packed full of options – full column and 2-3 column areas are available. The footer area is complete with space for an Instagram feed and social icons.
For the single post pages, you can choose from right sidebar, left sidebar or no sidebar styles easily.
Like all of our Blogger templates, Anaise is packed with color and font options that can easily be changed in the Customizer.
Other Great Features include:
- Drop down menus that are truly easy to set up.
- 100% mobile responsive
- Adjustable widths
- Custom fonts
- Custom logo template included
- Floating social icons widget
- Social media optimized
- SEO optimized
- And more!
