When I first started blogging I went straight to Pinterest. I had no idea what to do or how I was going to do it. All I knew was that I wanted to blog and that Pinterest held a lot of answers.
I was right! Pinterest not only got me to my starting point, but it even got me all the way to the point I am at now. Which is one month into my blogging journey. I can honestly say without the help of Pinterest getting me to all those other blogs I probably would’ve quit within my first week.
The only thing those bloggers didn’t really touch on was about making your site look amazing..
I am going to be 100% honest with you, how your blog looks is one of the most important aspects of your site.
Your theme and accompanying details tell a lot about the type of site you run, how much attention you pay towards your site, and how much you care about your site.
Don’t get me wrong, content is king, but how your site looks and how easy it is to get around it has a huge impact as well.
When I go on other veteran blogger’s sites I see that the majority of them are clean cut, easy to navigate, and tell a lot about the person who is running it.
So I figured that was exactly what I needed but I had no idea where to get it!
Until I stumbled upon Creative Market.
I immediately fell in love. I was looking for a clean design for my blog and it delivered hundreds of them to me. I have bought three since discovering them, and I have even received one for free. Yes, you read that right. I got a fully responsive premium theme for free. It’s part of their weekly goodies they hand out for free! You can get free fonts, themes, add ons, you name it! If it is offered on their site, you have a chance to obtain it in one of these weekly free giveaways.
Back to the themes. They are perfect for any type of site. Since they have such a huge variety it is really easy to find one you like. My current theme is the Blog Lady Theme and I came across it by simply going to WordPress Themes at the top and scrolling through the pages until I found one that I immediately loved. It really is that simple.
I also take full advantage of all the free fonts and templates as well! Even if I don’t use them now, it’s good to know that I will have them later. They are free, so what’s there to really lose?
How your site looks, is just as important as the content you create. Some people might not even view your content if they can’t navigate through your site, so take it seriously.
Are you ready? Head on over to Creative Market and make an account, then prepare to have your blogger’s mind blown!
