I always interested to everyone’s opinion about choosing color scheme for their blog and
I started a discussion on Blog Catalog several days ago on that topic.
The result is interesting and I come out with a conclusion that most of Bloggers tend to use grayscale to white as background layout. This is good since white or gray makes easy for eyes to capture the whole blog content, especially if your blog is rich in text content.
Dark background works very well for a photo blog. Photos or images that you post would look amazing if you choose black or dark blue as background color. Contrast balance between the background and the content will helps the audience to focus only to what you want to show. Of course you will also need typefaces in brighter color for headers and paragraph.
I wrap up color palette of these blogs that I reviewed into 3 (three) major colors. This is my way to determine what kind of moods and sense appears in every blog.
These are the blog snapshots of everyone who has joined in the discussion.

Vishnu’s blog brings powerful concept into the design, which feels reliable, has visual depth or complexity. Bright cobalt blue reinforced its intensity by powerful black background. Pale yellow pastel is very good choice for the text color since this color is delicate but fairly contrasts and adds vitality to the whole design.
