Shopify Blog Examples from the Aeolidia Portfolio

We’ve spent some time on our blog talking about the importance of blogging for your business, and giving you lots of ideas for what you can blog about! Often, when shop owners come to us for a custom website design, they are unsure about whether to include a blog directly on the Shopify platform, or to build it on another platform such as WordPress.

For the great majority of our clients, we recommend using the Shopify blogging platform. A Shopify blog is simpler than a WordPress blog, but most shop owners don’t need any bells and whistles. Managing two sites can be expensive and complicated, and promoting your work from a separate site/URL at WordPress is going to be harder than from inside your shop, where you can easily link to products without confusing people. The Shopify blogging platform is a great, though less feature-rich, option.

Our team pulled together a round-up of recent Shopify blog examples for you so that you can see what we are able to achieve with both design and features using the Shopify blogging platform.
