Choosing The Right Template/Design For The Blog
Here comes another challenge! Picking up a right theme or template for your blog… As per my experience, I have analyzed 1000s of themes and evaluated them like an operation. And therefore, when you are going to pick a theme or template for your blog, try to keep these things in your mind.1- Be clear of your purpose and then select a theme. Like, if you are making a photography blog, you will like to have a pinterest themed 4 column blog. Similarly, if you creating a lifestyle blog, a 2 column neat blog will do well.
1- Make sure your theme has proper spacing. Too much hotch-potch in the blog will make your readers run away3- Test the links and all buttons in your theme/template
2- See if there are any scopes of making the changes in the theme and editing it. It might be possible that after few days, a new need of adding another button arises, so make sure it’s not that difficult to do.
3- Pick a SEO friendly theme/template.
4- Theme should be ads-ready.
5- Don’t pick bright colored themes
6- Readability of your content should be good.
