Blogger's Secret: 10 Inspirational Bog Headers

In this Blogger's Secret post I talked about things your blog needs and a representative blog header was my number 2. In fact most of us spent a lot of time finding the perfect header when we started blogging but since then didn't necessarily think about designing a new one or still haven't found the best possible one. Even though I quite like my header I have been thinking about designing a new one for quite a while because I wanted something that represents me a bit better than the Chanel sign (because even if Chanel is one of my favourite designer brands I don't own a single Chanel piece!). In case you want a new header as well or still haven't found one you like you can get inspired by some of my favourites. I also tried to categorize them a bit and tell what I like about them.

1. The simple ones

Sometimes simple can be better. If you want a simple and yet interesting header, all you need is a really cute font. What I like about Betty's font is that it looks like it has been written with lipstick or a crayon. The cute idea about the "Blasfemmes" header is of course the girly cords.



2. Photographic Writing

If you want to add a picture of yourself to your header but don't want it to be too ostensible you can "hide" it behind a simple font like these ladies did. I really like the simplicity of the "Addict be Iconic" header but the colours on "Closet Voyage" are just amazing!



3. Pretty Frame
If a nice font is not enough, why not add a pretty frame? An ornamental one is always good but I truly love the simplicity paired with maritime details on "thecraziestparadigm". In fact I totally adore the whole blog design over there so don't forget to take a look at it! 



4. The Special Detail

What I like about the last 4 headers is that they all have a cute detail that makes them unique. For "My Philosophie" it's the cat ears on the O, for "The Pink Smashbox" it's the word pink, written in another font, on the "Fash Boulevard" I adore the fashion illustration and while "The Fashion Fraction" header looks really neat, there's still this little heart and the cute shape of the page frames.

What do you think? What makes a good header in your eyes and have you found the perfect one yet? Which one of these inspired you most?

  3. Awsome article! Well, truth to be told I haven't created my perfect one. I really like Blasfemmes header - just love it :)

    Kisses!

  4. Betty's is my favourite. I like my header simple and minimalist because that's what I can identify with most. I wouldn't change header too often as it works a bit like a logo and represents a brand/blog.

  5. I'm unable to change my header at this point in time. But if there ever comes a time when I can/really want to then I really like a simple one. Maybe with a cute picture but who knows?
    Hugs & Kisses,
    Olivia

  7. Hallo liebe Carmen,

    toller Post und wirklich schöne Beispiele! Ich glaube, ich muss mich mal durch deine Serie mit Blogging Tips lesen ;)

    Die kleinen, verspielten Details gefallen mir sehr gut (wie die Katzenöhrchen ;)), aber auch betty und der pinke Eyecatcher sind mein Ding. Da ich aber vor kurzem erst meinen Header (der wohl auch nicht der letzte sein wird, denn ein bisschen cleaner soll mein Blog noch werden) aktualisiert habe, steht das gerade nicht ganz oben auf meiner To-Do-Liste ;)

    Liebste Grüße
    Julia

    Have an amazing week,
