Well I am sure professional web designers designed that site. I don't know how they designed it. I once took a web design class and it drove me crazy. lol I also would like to know how Sony designed the PS blog so well with wordpress!
Wordpress + the right theme = A Good Blog
Either you pick someone's free theme or pay for one.
- Tweak the free themes however you want. (Restrictions on payed themes, what you can change and such depends on license you get with a paid theme.)
- Easy enough if you have even a smidgen design talent.
There are Content Manager sorts of themes, that's what brands build on usually, like PS Blog.
You can find many great themes right inside WordPress itself. FWIW
What I'm working on: Metro Last Light
I say go for blogger, I think I have about 500 views, and I haven't updated in maybe 5 months. I need to check.
Something VERY interesting must have happened the last time you updated.
