The Drudge Report - Why Design in Blogs Doesn't Matter
That's right, the design of your blog simply doesn't matter attested to the article linked to our title. In this article the writer values the Drudge Report, a popular political blog at around $40 million. Is is worth it?
Take a look at the Drudge Report here http://www.drudgereport.com/
. This is a very lame layout and design and now I am not being tongue in cheek here.
The lesson learned from the Drudge Report is that it's the content stupid not the design! To me it looks like Matt Drudge could easily spend a couple hundred dollars and get a really great blog design that was interesting to look at and would communicate visually his message better, but who am I to point a finger. According to Conde Nast's Portfolio.com blog
the Drudge Report is visited by 1.3 million unique visitors every month. Go figure! Great content will always excuse bad design, but really Matt, you need an overhaul.
