So, you took the plunge and started your very own blog. Congrats! That's a really big step for anyone.
The first thing you should have in mind is your target audience. Who is going to read your blog? Your students? Their parents? Your colleagues?
Starting from that information you can choose the style you need to have, the color palette, etc.
Here are some tips that will help you make the page more attractive:
* Contact a blog designer and work together to make your blog look exactly the way you want. You want visitors remember your blog's "face" and that will not going to happen if you have the same face than others.
* Don't write big blocks of text, it will overwhelm the reader and probably they will not read the text. Instead, you should make short paragraphs and insert images between them.
* Use a big letter size, and it should be a clear one. Is better to have a light background with a dark text color. Otherwise it will tire the sight.
* If you have too much text, you will want to make some words or phrases in bold letter so people read them better. This also will help you positioning the blog in Google, but we will talk about that in other post.
I wish you a very long life in the blogosphere. I will be happy to help you and answer any questions you have.
