At last! No more redundant tiled photo background, blinking text, and auto-playing background music. With the exception of Friendster, Myspace blogs, the majority of sore-eye pinoy blogs of the past are but now a minority. Thanks to the ever-evolving Content Management System (CMS), Filipino blog designs everywhere never looked so good.

The gallery below showcase the most awesome Filipino Blog Designs for 2006. It exemplies why in the hands of a talented pinoy designer, any blog can appeal to the eye, be eminently usable, and can also creatively throw the rulebook out of the window.
