Tips for making your blog visually appealing to visitors
Aesthetics play a very important role in attracting visitors to your blog. You can write and share great content on your blog and still fail to get enough organic traffic if your blog is not visually appealing to your visitors.
So how do you make your blog attractive? What elements do you need to utilize to increase engagement? Here are 5 tips you need to keep in mind.
How to create a visually appealing blog:
Break up your text
I write for our magazine on a daily basis. This means that I am constantly looking up resources and reading other sites and blogs to gather information for my posts. During my research, I have found that reading shorter paragraphs of 3-5 sentences was easier and more comprehensible. Moreover, shorter sentences make more sense and are easier to digest. When writing for your blog, try not to overcomplicate things. Keep your writing concise and to the point and go for shorter sentences and paragraphs.
Add images to get your point across
Personally, I feel that adding one relevant image to shorter posts is more than enough to get my point across to our readers. However, I find myself enjoying blogposts with a variety of interesting, humorous or just memorable images. These can really play a bog role in making your blog more visually appealing and more memorable as well.

Use videos to get attention
In this day and age, many people enjoy watching videos much more than they do reading! Actually, a video done right can be worth a thousand pictures! If you are looking to get more readers, you should definitely consider adding videos here and there every now and then. Since I insist that people practice what they preach, I need to tell you that I have been trying to get the courage to start making videos for our magazine yet still haven’t gotten around to it 😉
Make use of colors
Did you know that using the right colors can stir up feelings of passion, warmth and excitement? I mean just look at the famous brands and how they utilize colors to their advantage! This is why you need to pick the right colors for your blog to make it more inviting and visually appealing to your visitors.
Always choose quality
Trust me when I tell you that quality kicks quantity’s behind each and every time! No matter what you post on your blog, make sure that you always choose quality over quantity. This means that you should avoid using dark, pixelated and blurry images, make sure that your text is clear and easily digestible and ensure that your subject is in focus. Moreover, always put yourself in your reader’s shoes and train yourself to distinguish good work from work that is rushed or below par.
