Are you happy with your blog template? did you choose the right template for your blog? this is a question i have been asking myself for some time how often should i change my template? is the big question so i decided to write a post about this and engage my readers to get their thought on this one. In my last post evaluating your website one of my reader mentioned that choosing a theme for your blog is more daunting than doing SEO itself food for thought is it and believe me it can and this is what motivate me to right this post.Thanks to Robert for inspiring me to write this post.
I can hear you saying another thought provoking thought from lawmacs, i like that sometimes as a blogger you have to be a bit controversial to get reaction from visitors not too controversial though now back to the main point of this post, every thing we as bloggers do we need to evaluate everything from our web statistics to our earnings. some times we move our ads to different areas of our blogs hoping for more clicks i believe and this is just my belief that there are times when we need to change our blog template and see if this makes any different for our blog.
I don’t know if any one else have the same feelings like i do but it seems that my blog template always needs tweaking and sometimes changing, it may just be me very fussy and like changes. We so often hear the phrase that Content is King but to me the king always needs a castle and that castle is the template, having brilliant content is good and always recommended but you need a good design to top it off. How may time have you been on a blog with good content but the design is not appealing to you it may be too cluttered or hard to navigate and you get turned off.
Changing your Template Can Be easy
For those running Blogger or WordPress as your blogging platform then you have it easy the reason been that there are thousand of templates available for free and paid on these platform WordPress especially has a huge collection of themes available for download but remember to acknowledge the creators wish by leaving the links in the style sheet or where ever. choosing one of these themes may not fully suit your needs however feel free to customize them to suit your needs. I am experience in creating my own theme but i still use from created by some one else why is that? you may asked there are many other things we do as bloggers so why invent the wheel just use one already made and get on with other stuff like promoting your blog. now how often should you change you template share your views here and thanks for participating.
