    Blog Design Tips for Beginners (6 tips)

    What is your goal?
    Are you trying to sell a product or a service? Are you building a website to display your portfolio? Are you writing commentaries, reviews, lectures or tutorials? Your call for action, which will be supported by your blog’s design, should be appropriate with your goal. Keep this in mind always.

    Placing matters
    Your header or banner bears the personality and name of your blog. It should be placed where the audience will quickly see it, that’s why banners are usually positioned at the top. If your blog has search and subscribe via newsletter option, place it at the top half of your page, preferably at the upper right or left of the page so as not to disrupt the page visually. Information about you and your blog should be visible at first glance.

    Use only up to 3 fonts
    Using more than 3 fonts can make your Wordpress blog look cluttered. Also, your blog should have a form of unity to establish a distinct identity. You can use 3 different fonts for your content, heading and body. This can get quite complicated as there are intricate rules so read more about typography to know which fonts go well together.

    Use only 3 colors
    The 3 main colors you should use are your blog’s brand color, call to action color and emphasis color. Creating a good color scheme can be challenging but there are websites & even apps that can generate appropriate color schemes based on a color that you provide so think of a brand color and let those websites help you.

    Take advantage of textures and gradients
    You don’t want your blog to look flat. A design that has subtle hints of texture and gradients will contribute to your blog’s overall look.

    Make buttons appear dynamic
    Buttons look best when they appear slightly three dimensional or elevated, especially if it’s a call to action button like a “sign up” or “buy” button.

    Keep it short
    As the wrong choice of fonts contributes to clutter, so is an army of words. Keep every concise, especially on your home page or landing page (if you have one). Your home page is like your blog’s introduction to the readers.
