Benefits of having a new design for your blog

The design and appearance used is one of the mainstays of a blog. That is why Templatelite has the redesign. Just admit it – an attractively designed blog will have more pulling power rather than a plain and dull blog with no graphics, pictures and so on. These will result in the blogs gaining followers and increased readership. There are several pointers and tips below for those intending to design their blogs to make it attractively appealing to others :

  • Adding Extras – a redesign will give you more opportunity on how you can extend the functionality of your blog by allowing adding extra features such as social bookmarking buttons, Subscriber Stats, RRS buttons, Portfolio Showcase, Chat Windows and many more. An extra feature that will make your subscriber stay and they will even invite their friends to join the blog.
    Previously, I didn’t have any posts about design resources. Since this site is about theme design, it would be appropriate to include the resources. In future, I’ll also include more advertising options and probably do custom theme design and SEO work for others.
  • Rearranging your Blog – if you have a messy space on your blog it is not recommended that you have so many unnecessary components and elements. The best way is to remove some of the unnecessary components and retain the best parts of your blog that are neglected sometimes. Keep it smart, simple but effective.
    Take a look at this site for example, the top left is the showcase of my latest themes. The sidebar lists only important sections that include introduction of Templatelite, search feature, RSS feature, archive, about our themes, WordPress tips and tricks, useful resources, tag cloud etc. The footer has 3 columns showing the popular themes, recent posts and recent comments. I think all these sections are necessary for my blog.
  • New Experience for the visitors – having attractive and appealing new design in your blog is definitely an attention grabber especially on the Internet world everyday there are new innovations that are made. It is akin updating your wardrobe with your new look blog. Some visitors tend to get bored with the same old look.
  • Better Usability – usability of your page is one of the most essential parts of the blog. For example, if the visitors check your page and finds nothing usable about the blog, it is possible that they will not return to the blog. Compared to blogs that features contains elements such as like everyday events and exciting happenings to look forward to, blogs without usability and relevance to visitors are often passed and overlooked.
    I am constantly looking for ideas to improve the usability of this site to get more repeating visitors. The core of Templatelite is to offer free and quality WordPress themes. I admit that I have not done enough releasing more quality themes but I am working hard on this part now.

Indeed, blogging is the new trend in the Internet world that has been gaining popularity over the years. Whether for social or corporate businesses, a graphically appealing design of a blog is always a plus factor. This is especially so when Advertising is involved in the blogs. An organized blog that is designed exceptionally and attractively will result in increased visitors and even lead to increased sales.

The above are merely several illustrations of how a new design in your blog can be beneficial to a blog owner. The design of a blog is akin to the clothes worn by a person. It is the skin and most often the first attraction and mainstay of visitors to the blog.
