55 Fabulous Footers

55 fabulous footers

When we visualize the typical blog layout we see it as made up of four areas, a header, content area, sidebar and the footer. One of these sections gets the short end of the stick and unfortunately, can easily be scanned over by the reader. The footer is your last chance to grab a users attention and keep them active within your site.

The contents of a footer vary greatly from one blog to another. One may contain a Flickr pool, some recent articles and a way to let the user get in contact with the author. Others may be as simple as an interesting graphic with just a few quick links. Whatever your style, footers should not be given any less attention by the designer as they are your last chance to interact with visitors.
