A Beautiful Blog: Here's How You Can Make Your Site Look Its Best

Monday, September 11, 2017


The internet is saturated with blogs- which is no bad thing. There really is room in the blogging world for everyone, what makes blogs so unique is that they’re written from real people’s perspective. Each blog is different because no two people will ever have the exact same views and opinions. However, it does mean that as bloggers we can struggle to stand out from the crowd. One way you can bring instant personality to your site is by changing the way it looks if you’re considering doing this here’s how you can go about it. 

Use a Premade Template
If you’re not a coding whizz and don’t have hours and hours to spare messing around with Blogger’s template settings- why not use a premade template? You could purchase one from Pigdig or Etsy, or even use a free responsive template from a site like Themexpose. These are usually compressed into one file that you simply upload in Blogger’s ‘theme’ menu option. All of the hard work is done for you, everything will be beautifully laid out, and it’s easy to add or remove the gadgets you want, so it’s completely custom to you. You get a template that looks clean and professional and is likely to turn out far better than attempting a template yourself unless you’re someone who has a lot of experience with these things. 

Have a Banner/ Logo Custom Made
Premade templates are fantastic, the only problem is they can look generic, and you don’t want your blog to look like every other out there. The way you can get around this issue is by having a beautiful banner custom made. Speak to a graphic designer or find an artist who offers this service on sites like Etsy, and let them know what you’re after. That way you get the best of both worlds, a neat and tidy blog that’s easy to install yet it can still stand out and be custom to you because of the graphics. If you’re having business cards and things created, you will be able to use the same vectors for those too. It will keep your theme and branding consistent throughout. 

Use Beautiful Images
The images you use in your blog post can also affect the way your blog looks overall. Choose high quality, clear and beautiful pictures and put one at the start of each post. Aim to take pictures yourself, but where this isn’t possible sites like Pexels and Pixabay are good. You can use any of the images for free, and you don’t even need to give credit. It’s your pictures that will bring your posts to life, and they will make your entire blog look better overall too. 

Format Your Posts Correctly
Another way you can make your posts (and your entire blog) look great is by formatting your posts correctly. This makes it easier for people to read and your blog looks nicer at a glance too. Split each post into readable sized paragraphs with subheadings in bold. Each paragraph should be at least four lines long, and each section should contain a different point.
