20 Best Premade Blogger Templates

What Is Blogging And What’s The Point?

Just before we get started though, what even is blogging?

Blogging is a discussional or informative website that aims to get information across to a reader in usually a conversational and chatty way, think of it almost like a diary, but online, and written to be read, not just kept in a bedside drawer. 

Whatever it is you’re writing about, blogging is great, you get to discuss whatever it is you’re passionate about, and have the opportunity to share that with the world, on top of that, there’s no guesswork here, you can keep it as real as you like with your audience, or as fake as you want.

Every single blog will ultimately be different, because they’re personal, and personal experiences are essentially what blogging is all about.

They’re stories from a different perspective, and make for great ways to engage readers. 

What Sorts Of Different Types Of Blogs Are There?

So now that we know what blogs are, what is it really that separates blogs?

This is the template of the blog, and whilst whatever you do your information will always be the same, getting that information across to potential readers will always be affected by the template of the blog that you choose to use.

For example, blogs about cooking and food will always require a lot more pictures than other blogs about literature or mental wellbeing.

This is why it’s important to choose the template that’s right for you, so that your information is conveyed in the best way possible, so that it’s easy to read and understand for your target audience.

You don’t want people to click off your blog as soon as they see it, so choosing the correct template for what you’re writing about is really important!

That’s why we’ll be going over the best templates that you can choose from using websites such as Wix and Squarespace to optimize your blogging experience, so you can spend more time writing about the things that you love. 

Life Blog Template

So, if you’re interested in getting into blogging but don’t know where to start just yet, then don’t worry!

The first template we’ll talk about is a life blog template that’s excellent for lifestyle bloggers that like writing about day to day happenings and thoughts.

Lifestyle blog templates are great for people wanting to build an online presence without having a specific passion that they want to write about, instead you can write about whatever you like.

Your blog posts are visible directly from the homepage, and with the most recent ones showing at the front, people can read what’s most recently gone on in your life, and then you can use navigation tabs to go through any other sections of your blog that you might be looking for.

Food Blog

Maybe you’re a great cook, or just someone that loves to eat food! Either way food blogs are extremely popular and that’s for good reason!

You can take pictures of the food you made/ate! And post them all over the frontpage of your blog, so that they can do the talking for you.

These blogs are perfect for the food enthusiasts of us, and never fail to make anyone reading hungry at the sight of them!

Travel Blog

Viewers can navigate through your blog searching for individual books you might have read, or you can even document your own writing here.

Literature blogs are generally writing focused instead of many others on this list, and for that reason you can be super creative! Allow your creativity to run wild.

News Blog

Regardless of who you are in the world, the news is always going to be an important part of everyday life for you.

Because of this, news blogs are always a popular choice, for people to voice their own independent opinions on the news, and get their opinion out there on whatever is happening in the world, and on a smaller scale, your neck of the woods.

It doesn’t have to just be your opinion though, write unbiased, fact based news with the mindset of getting clear and accurate information across to readers.

It’s completely up to you, you can have trending stories appear on the front page of your blog, and can even throw breaking news blogs you’ve written right on the front page whenever you like, these blogs can take a little more work, but can really get a lot of traffic when managed well.

Style And Design Blogs

Similar to the travel blogs, style and design really look to showcase their examples through pictures beautifully placed through their frontpage.

There’s no better way to showcase your style and design work than through pictures of the work itself, be it through interior decorating, or photography.

Loads of pictures carefully chosen go over the front of your blog, and if you’d like you can write some short words around them to give a some context.

This blog template is very minimalistic on the words, so if you’ve got something that’s best shown through pictures then Style and design templates are a great choice. 

Family Blogs

For so many of us, family is everything, and this is a great way to blog about it!

Combine pictures with text, and blog about the family vacation, Pregnancy, Health, Marriage, your career, or anything else you can think of!

These are similar to a lifestyle blog, but your focus is going to be based on your family as a whole, instead of just yourself as an individual.

Pregnancy blogs are hugely popular, and are a great way to document a relatively short but hard part of your life, all in the buildup to welcoming another member of your family to the world.

If you’ve got some great family stories to share, or just want to blog to cherish all of the memories you have of your family and keep it on one ideal platform, then creating a family blog is a great idea.
