Blogging is getting more and more popular day by day and trust me making a blog is not that difficult. Just a little know how, real efforts and too much of dedication is all you need to be a successful blogger. I am here with some really effective tips if you have a WordPress blog which will help you in creating a great blog and also to maintain it as a successful one.

I have actually added some of the basic norms that you need to follow to make your blog admirable. The two very basic norms are the easy navigation and the readability of the blog. If your blog is not readable or easily navigable the visitors might not like to come there or to be there for long.

Thus if you are making a blog, make sure that the visitor find him/her comfortable there. Make a user friendly blog. Keep the thing in mind that every person coming to your blog is not tech savvy and might not know the technicalities so make it simple for him to move in your blog. Clumsy and complex blogs never appeal to the visitor. The visitors never come again to any complex or ham-fisted blog.

Tips for blogging can however not be confined in a single post so we will talk about the designing tips of a WordPress blog in this piece of writing.

1. Home Page is important

Home page is like the entrance door of your blog. Visitors first reach there and thus it becomes important to make the home page the best. Make sure that all the other pages of your blog are easily navigable from the home page. Home page must be elegant and most importantly perfectly relevant to your niche and content. Add all the important details on the home page without failure.

2. Appropriate categories and pages

Do not forget to add the well systemized buttons to your pages and categories of your blog. Proper systemization will give your more and more page views. Remember not to clutter with too many buttons. Use the sub menu if you want to add more categories or pages. If you have more to show keep the font small and simple. Keep the font color in contrast with the background to make it more clear and readable.

3. Theme plays an important role

Basic theme and framework play an important role to attract the visitors and to bring them back in your blog again. While make the blog, check all the available themes and go for the one which suits your blog the most. There is an option in almost every CMS which shows preview of the theme, use that option and check if the theme you selected actually suits your blog or not.

4. Social Sharing Buttons

Every CMS have its own plugins providing the social sharing buttons. There are many different plugins and you need to select the best out of them. However there are too many social networking websites which add their button in these plugins but the major social sharing buttons are Facebook, Twitter, StmbleUpon and Google +. Social sharing buttons play a major role in increasing your blog traffic.

5. Sidebar

This is a very important place in your blog. You need to place all the widgets and tools in the sidebar. Some of the themes have an option of changing the appearance of the sidebar. You can shift the sidebar to the left or the right side according to your requirements. The size of the sidebar is also customizable. If you want to change the sidebar appearance, it would be better to go with such theme. The affiliate links can also be added in the sidebar.

The above mentioned tips might not be all, but will help you in making considerable changes in the traffic of your blog. Perfect is the blog, more is the traffic and greater are the revenues.
