Hear about the design and build process for my new blog, as well as see some fun interactions I built for it! In this video you’ll get a look at my design file and the iterations I tried, and see how I’ve set up the Webflow CMS for my blog.
My goals for designing the blog was for it to be a good reading experience first and foremost! I didn’t want every post to rely on having a fancy feature image, and I wanted it to be super easy for me to add a new post to (so that I’d have less excuses not to publish…) Take a look at the blog design on my live site and let me know what you think! https://charlimarie.com/blog
I’d highly recommend watching this in full screen so you can better see all my settings in Webflow, although I tried to zoom in on the important stuff.

Huge thanks to Ryan and Waldo from the Webflow team for helping me figure out some of the trickier code parts! I really appreciate you. ❤️
