The Top 6 elements of a good blog design are

#1 Domain Name

Instead of having a domain name that says YourSite.Wordpress.com, having your own domain name makes your blog look more personal and professional. Also, having your own domain name allows you to design the site any way you want it to look and not depend on templates given by the remote host service.

#2 Subscription Options

Having a subscription button or opt-in form allows you to keep your subscribers updated whenever you have new information to share on your blog. You can also offer a free item like a free report or a free tutorial to readers to provide additional value to them for following you.

There are many opt-in form providers like getresponse and aweber. They provide different user experience depending on the user’s preference. I personally prefer aweber. You can try them free for 30 days here.

 

 

#3 Social Buttons

People like to share good stuff, and when they read something useful on you blog, it’s always good to provide an option for them to share it with their friends. Who knows? Your article may get viral and can earn you lots of free traffic to your blog.

#4 SEO

Having your blog posts optimized for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) will earn you good traffic in the long run. A suggested plugin to use will be the Yoast SEO plugin. It is free and easy to implement.

#5 Your Bio

An About Me or a personal bio page can increase your online credibility and allow your readers to know and trust you.

#6 Images

The use of images helps add to the look and feel of a blog and makes the blog more interesting. It also encourages people to read your post if they see an interesting image that relates to what they want to read. Try to put an image on the top of your post and also throughout the post to make the post more colorful.
