Well now a days there is more competition in blogging. Newbies create a new blog to teach the things which they even don’t clearly know about it. In fact, they make the content by collecting the views from other blogs and they even don’t care what actually they are writing about. And this became the very funny part of Blogging.
Its very common to do such things because we get the inspiration from older bloggers who are mostly trained and experienced in blogging field. Getting into the point, while newbie (or even pros) creates new blog after getting the inspiration from other fields, they make some major mistakes which may take them to wrong direction.
They usually choose the design for their blog which makes it feels good only for them but not for their visitors and readers. So, I’m going to describe something which is very important to care about if you’ve just started a blog as a newbie.
What is ‘Close Within a Second’ blog?
What would you feel when you enter to a blog having worst design/layout and low quality content? Definitely you make take your mouse curse to ‘Close’ button of that browser or tab. Its called ‘Close Within a Second’ blog.
When you visit one new blog by tending to get some tips and if it has not good design then you may close that blog even without reading any words. No matter how much quality that article or content has.
Now a days there is much more competition of good themes for WordPress blog. Take an example of Thesis WordPress theme. Its popular for SEO and can be customized. But the two words ‘SEO optimized’ and ‘customized’ has been saved in the mind of most of the people. Meanwhile we never try some new creative that impress the readers and visitors that makes them to suck to our blog for long time.
If your blog has unpleasant appearance, they will never return to your blog in future.
Choose the most professional theme and design for your blog. Don’t run after the Theme company unless you know everything in details what actually it do. If you don’t have a skill in basic coding language then you can use the simple theme which can be customized easily. As far as I seen many people use Thesis theme but some people are not using it in the right way. Some people got excellent design by using Thesis though. You might know too many ads, low quality contents, ‘dead post’ and bad design makes your first time visitor feel unpleasant.
You can ask for the review of your blog in some popular online forums to get feedback if your blog is comfortable only for you or for your readers as well.
Once you are free from ‘Close Within a Second’ group, you’ll start getting great amount of loyal readers and visitors.
