How To Make Your Blog Unique
Starting a blog
So, you’ve got something to say and you need a blog? That’s great! Just try not to turn your great idea into one of millions of boring faceless blogs.
A blog starts with choosing a platform (backend) for it. You may use free platforms (like Blogspot), but keep in mind, that they do not provide enough freedom in customization. If you make up your mind to add a useful unique feature to your blog one day, you might face a lot of limits of the platform. That’s why we suggest to use your own hosting with free open source platforms for blogs.
No doubt, that WordPress is the king of free blog platforms. You may customize anything in it, add dozens of free/paid plugins to power up your blog, enable/disable comments, likes, tags, etc. Other blog platforms merely can compete with WordPress in variety of functions and changes.
Free or premium wordpress themes?
“I found a nice free template, why don’t I use it for my blog?” Well, you may use it, if you intend to make just “another wordpress blog”, not a unique one. Using a popular free theme is the worst solution ever, as millions of other blogs are using the same theme. Visitors won’t distinguish you among other bloggers. Your site will become “another plain blog”.
Premium WordPress themes are not so expensive. $50 and the theme is yours. Now you may be sure, that a chance to meet another site with a similar design is zero. You might be sure, that html/css of your theme is validated. You might be sure, that you won’t get some malicious 64bit code in the files of your theme. And finally, you can be sure, that your blog will have its own face.
If you have enough tech skills, it would be useful to change theme colors, layout and other things. This will really turn your blog into a unique and eye-catching design.
