Posted in Blogging, Web Design4 years ago • Written by 19 Comments

I noticed that old design of these blogs was also good & that made me think that people can use their old designs in more than one way.

This idea came to me few days back, when I found blog post on a famous design blog that gave sneak peek of their new design. I felt current design of that website was also pretty awesome. I quickly made a comment on the post suggesting him that he should donate his old design to new & upcoming bloggers which can help them in some way.
