If you've ever designed a website, you know what it feels like to hit a wall. Every Web designer has come to the point when he just does not know what to do – whether it's thinking of a creative design, working past a bug, or finding just the right texture or font.

Fortunately, there are plenty of great blogs out there to help you get over the hump. Some give away free resources, others offer tutorials and tips, while others are just places to find creative inspiration. Keeping up with blogs is also a great way to stay current on Web trends and news. Here are 10 of the most helpful Web design blogs on the Internet right now:
