One thing I’ve noticed with blogs I follow is that they all have something in common, and it’s not the content.
Years ago when I started blogging, I was always trying to make my blog look great. Having a nice design with eye-catching colours was my goal, but every time I designed a site, I still wasn’t happy with it.
It took me a few years to realise that it was nothing to do with the theme or design framework itself. It was more to do with the graphical elements of each blog post.
Those graphics used in the blog post content and main feature images pulled the blog design together. Also, good graphics will keep people on your page a little longer helping to improve SEO.
Adding stunning graphics plays a role in making a “good design” or making it “look nice” as my clients used to say.
