Blogging is amazing.
Being a blogger is a great thing for me.
But there’s one thing that I just realized. How our blogs look like – in the eye of the readers.
A fact that we shouldn’t deny is – readers are the assets of our blogs. Why? Because each reader brings traffic to our site and sometimes brings benefits. If you content is cool enough, you might get a free backlink to your site!
So what are the things that we need to consider?
The most visible thing of our site is the appearance of the site itself. Choosing an appropriate theme is an essential step in order to give your site a nice appearance. Sometimes the design of your theme will attract readers to visit your site more than once.
I guess it’s not a hard thing to search for a nice WordPress that suit your need. Just search through search engine and you’ll see huge amount of WordPress themes!
Modify the theme so it could live the way you want.

2. Technical Aspects
The most important aspect in this category is – don’t let your site loading forever! Make sure you have a light sidebar so your site will take less time to load. Avoid any scripting problem. Don’t try to modify if you don’t understand about the files, scripts, etc. Sometimes your site will down in different browsers so it’s better to test running your site using different browsers.
Absolutely. This is the MOST important thing for your site. Superb content will catch your readers’ eyes. And I do believe that content always be the king. You got interesting contents, readers will always feel eager to revisit your site and read what you write! Create interesting and fresh content and don’t forget to write them in a unique way so you will get your own identity.
I guess it’s useful for you to know on how to build credibility as a blogger.
Again, readers are our assets.
