There are some websites that you probably just visit for the eye candy. I know I do 🙂
I bumped into this post by Andrew Faulkner, who happened to list some of my favorite blogs.
You can actually imagine how much work has gone into these beautiful creations. I never tire of visiting these websites.
However, the backgrounds are so awesome; they kind of take the attention off the content, which might not be such a good idea in the long run. These guys have already wowed their readers with their content, so it’s not going to make a big difference to their readership.
For beginners though, it would be wise to work on the content as it were. Meanwhile you could work on honing your graphic skills in preparation for your days of fame 😉
