I created my blog 6 years ago, and I got tons of emails regarding my blog platform and my blog theme. I decided to write an article about my blog design today, and I hope it will help you guys.
If you want to start your own blog, one of the most important things you should work on is your blog design. Some of the great bloggers started with a really shitty template and ugly design but they wrote amazing content and they actually made it. If you want to keep your visitors, you will need both great content and a nice, simple design for your website.
It is really important to have a clear view of the content, both on the laptop and mobile devices. Your main menu should be readable, clear, and easy to use. You also need to show related posts, once your visitor is done with reading your blog post, he should be able to find some other similar article in order to stay on your blog.
Which Blogging Platform do I Use?
I am using the WordPress platform, and it’s the best blogging platform ever made. I run 100+ sites on WordPress and I am using 20+ plugins on my sites (per site).
WordPress is a simple solution for your blog as much as it is for every other type of website you need to with: portfolio site, video site, quiz site, news website, business website, or any type of website.
You can find 10000+ WordPress themes and templates or some great plugins on Themeforest for a great price.
My WordPress Theme
I am using the same theme for the last 6 years, it’s the Alyeska Themeforest theme. It’s one of the best blogging themes, and you can make a wide range of websites using this theme. I used this theme for 40 different niche sites, 5 portfolio sites for my clients, 3 blog sites, and 1 video website.
