It's been a while since I published a last post with blogging tips. I guess it's time to get back to them. I wanted to talk with you about how to achieve that modern look on your blog. It's really important to keep your theme up to date and I will try to help you with it!
➳ Keep it minimal and fresh. You want your blog to look nice and clean. Newbies often put everything in their blog. All social media icons, banners, slideshows, literally everything! As well with crazy and bold colors. You don't want any of that. You want it to be nice and clean and most important: functional. Remove all the widgets you don't need or the ones that are slowing your blog down, as well as all social media tabs you don't need (one set of buttons is enough, you don't need a bunch of others). If you are on a Blogger platform, make sure to remove blogger navigation bar, it doesn't do anything for you and it makes your blog look old. ➳ Buy a new theme for your blog. Use more white space! There is so many places to buy cheap, responsive themes. My favourite one is Etsy. Remember, you want to have a lot of white space, you want it to be functional and you need to add a personal touch to it. Don't go crazy with it, keep it minimal and don't complicate it, people hate that. ➳ Buy a domain for your blog. If you want to make your blog look more proffesional, buy a domain for it (.com, .rs or .net). It looks and sounds better. You want your blog to look that good that people need to think from which platform it is. I would suggest you to avoid themes with sidebars, because you can easily tell on which platform it is. Not just that, most of the blogs have it and they look pretty much the same. You want to be different, so people can remember you. ➳ Don't use ads all over the blog! This is a tacky one. I personally don't like seeing ads all over the blog. I don't think it's aesthetically pleasing and I hate when it's popping out while I'm reading a post. I can handle them on the sidebars, but at the top of the post or in the middle of it, I really can't handle it. So make sure to know what your audience thinks and try to keep the balance. ➳ Resize your images before uploading them, so blog can run faster. This one is a techy one, but it's really really important! If you want your blog to be faster you need to make your image smaller. You need to resize them everytime you want to publish them on the blog. It's not really a big thing, I'm sure you are already adjusting them a bit in the PS so don't forget to make them smaller. I'm not going under the 2400 x 1600 or vice verca. I recently discovered option in PS where you can save your picture for the web in that way colors will appear the same as in the Photoshop! Insane, right. ➳Don't use childish fonts! If you want your blog to look professional and modern you need to forget childish fonts. You don't want anything to stand out too much (in a bad way). You don't want letters to be in some crazy colors or to have trouble reading the text because people will leave your blog immediatly. It's really hard to get attention from other people so when you get it make it worth their time! What are your tips for making blog more modern and proffessional?
