After I published my blog few years ago, I got tons of emails about my blog platform and my blog theme. I decided to write a post about my blog design today, and I hope it will help you guys.
If you want to start some online blog, one of the most important things you should work on is design. Some of the great bloggers started with shitty templates and ugly design but they had amazing content and they made it.
If you want to attract visitors more than one time, if you want returning customers, you need a great content and some nice design for you website.
It is really important for visitors to have clear view at the content, bot on PC and mobile devices, but one more thing is also really important, it’s a navigation. Your main menu should be readable, clear and easy to click on.
You also need related posts plugin, 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.
What blogging platform do I use?
