48 Excellent Examples Of Blog Post Footer Designs

What happens when your visitors are done reading a post on your blog? Maybe they comment on the article, go read another one, click on an ad, get in touch with you, vote and share the post on social media sites, subscribe to your RSS feed, or… simply leave your site.

Of course the last thing we want as bloggers and site owners if for people to scan/read an article and then leave right after. That would suck, right? What can we do to prevent that? Well, the space between the post and the comment section is the perfect place to put a little something that asks our loyal and new readers for some votes on social media sites or maybe invite them to read other articles.

Here are 48 blog post footer designs that should give you some ideas for your blog. Popular trends include:

  • related entries
  • rss subscription options
  • social media icons and badges
  • advertisements
  • date & time
  • categories and tags
  • post author boxes

Some are minimalist and subtle, some are big and bold! Which ones are your faves? :)
