Today I wanted to write about something else other than finance and debt related stuff – my new passion: blogging! As you probably know, I’ve been really getting into blogging lately. I just love it!
When I first started my blog, I customised a free WordPress template for my blog design and I kind of like it in a minimalistic sort of way. But in all honesty, it was only supposed to be a temporary design whilst I got my blog up and running. I think my blog design might need a little shake up and a splash of… well something.
I’ve read that an appealing blog design can mean the difference from someone staying on your blog to take a look around and someone clicking away at first glance.
I have my eye on a nice little theme I’ve found, but I wanted to do a little research before I go ahead with something new to make sure that a: I get a design that works, b: I get a design that looks good to the reader and c: I get a design that I’m happy with too.
There are loads of fabulously designed sites out there in the PF community so I thought I would ask you – the experts – what makes a well designed blog! So, if you have a couple of minutes, I wondered if you could help me out by answering some of these questions in the comments sections below.
What is one key element that all well designed blogs should have?
Which style and size of fonts look best to the reader?
Which colours stand out the most in blog design?
Which type of design is better – simple and uncluttered or interesting and creative?
What’s the best kind of layout to use e.g. one column, two column or three column?
I’d really appreciate your feedback! Thanking you in advance! 🙂
