Soon after arriving on your blog what visitors see first? They don’t read the title of your blog. Nor they check how much navigation-easy it is. They either want to see it or not but the design of your blog comes in their sight by itself.
So your blog design makes its first impression. Do you like to put first impression very bad on your visitors? They are not visitors. They are your potential customers if you are doing serious blogging. So you must make your blog design neat and clean. It should be free from clutter. But it is more important to avoid any design mistake that work as counterproductive on your potential customers.
5 blog design mistakes
I tell you 5 blog design mistakes that may show your visitors exit door. I am not a designer so I will not use technical words. In simple words I will try to explain my points. It’s my innocent confession.
You and your designer may be so creative. But need not tell this to your visitors. Don’t stuff your ideas into your design. Just pick the one that make it a cool design.
An impressive design means the one that reflects your brand. It should equally reflect your personality. Look at problogger.net you will feel as if Darren Rowse is casting a deep look at you. Look at johnchow.com and you will feel John Chow standing in front of your with his centuries-old Chinese smile.
This is a common design mistake. You forget your target audience and follow your own level. An average internet user is neither a blogging geek nor a designing maestro. He is a common being like the one we see around us. He just has one more skill than the people around us. He can browse internet. So never overestimate him. Here also follow the writing rule. Make your design comprehensible to a class 5th student. Right?
Loud colors can grab the attention but cannot be in the memories of visitors for a long time. A very different color with mild tone can work well. Just search the top 10 blogs on internet and see which one has loud color. Not even one has much shouting color. Most of them fully tried different colors but equally impressive ones.
It should not have so much curves, lines, borders and charts. It should be as simple as possible. But where it is necessary to use them do it with complete freedom. Don’t guide the visitors on every step where they should go now. But also don’t leave them alone and guide them where it is necessary to help them where they should go.
This is another serious design mistake. Most of the bloggers don’t see their blogging plan before making the design. They keep changing it whenever they have to implement a new part of their plan. That is why make a design fully adjustable with gradual implementation of your blogging plan.
