Choosing a Blog Template

Two characteristics make a successful blog. The first is content and the other important factor that makes a successful blog is the blog template. A new blogger who decides to start a blog on a free blogsite is presented with a range of templates. The new blogger must carefully choose a suitable blog template to increase the readership of the blog once it is uploaded.

A good blog template should be easy on the eye of the reader and keep the reader returning for more information on the blog. The blog template should not only be pleasing to the eye but easy to navigate. The reader should be in a position to find information quickly. Internet users scan read content and the blog template should enable them to get to the information they want in a few seconds.

New bloggers should look for a few important elements while choosing a blog template on free blogsites. A good blog template will have a header design that arrests the attention of the reader. The header should be customizable and allow the blogger to add social network links and a search option. The font used should be simple yet elegant. Bloggers can either display the entire content on the main page or add thumbnails to lead the reader to different parts of the content.

New bloggers should choose a blog template that has a sidebar. A sidebar is an important method of attracting readership. Bloggers can either add a search option on the sidebar or have an archive section for older posts. Bloggers can also give a list of popular posts on the sidebar of the template.

Bloggers should also put themselves in the position of a reader and check if the blog template is attractive to their own eyes before uploading the blog. Bloggers should also pay careful attention to reader feedback after the blog is uploaded and improve the template based on the feedback.

The volume of internet traffic that visits a blog not only depends on the information available but also on an easy to read and navigate blog template.
