    you know that clean finish that the big websites have
    such as mashable, techcrunch.

    let's make a list on features which are a total must
    for every blog - your favourites.

    it can be a fwibya social networking bar, engraved
    social networking bars within the article where should
    it be located? where is the best target etc etc

    purpose of this thread is for you to list out
    what you think a blog should include for it to stand out

    A simple white layout with a professional logo will go a long way.

    yeah stay simple, choose good combinations of colors and don't give it a forum like look if you are going to make a site like mashable, and do give a little profile like thing look to each of your writers*

    Innovative, easy to use, a nice mixture between top-notch design and user-friendly technology.

    Perfect suggestions above - I really like the article portfoilo you mentioned that is definently a must to give it that look

    I also am going with the rule KISS = keep it simple stupid

    I removed things like archives showing dates also I'm looking to remove dates? do you think its a good idea how example on the homepage is says "17 hours ago" would it be better to remove the figure of how long ago it was posted?

    also the wibya add on is a good function for example when you click a picture it will throw a box saying would you like to share with all the social networking links etc

    anymore let's create a list it will help everyone not only myself

    KISS = Keep it Short and Sweet, I have never heard it as Keep It Simple Stupid.
    You may want to recheck that.
