Writer’s Corner (4) – Layout

New Bloggers

Welcome to another post on my tips to new bloggers in the world of blogging. These are just helpful pointers to building and shaping your blog into how you want it to appear for your readers.

I believe one of the most important things to keep in mind is layout and appearance. Clearly, the WordPress Templates you can choose from make this alot easier for those of us who are not website building experts 😊. But, the content and visuals, still remains in our hands. Readers access blogs via desktops, tablets notebooks and mobiles and in our time constrained world, it’s important to not only capture readers, but to keep them on your page long enough to read your post. These different devices change how you blog appears for the reader. Therefore, its important to think about the quality and images you use, as well as the layout of your writing.

Tip 1

The tool bar in the top left with the white plus sign in the blue box gives a number tool options to use in order to add visual dynamics to your posts.

The above was done by selecting Media & Text in the Media area. Where you can upload or select and image and then add your supportive or descriptive text beside it.

Tip 2

Free Google Image

You can also select where you want your image to appear in your post. Either to the left, centre or to the right as I have done hear.

First upload your image. Then click on it and a tool bar will appear above it. Click on the first image icon in that bar. This will give you a drop down list to select from.

When you click on your image again it will also be encircled by a blue line. While that line is visible you can adjust the image by widening or minimize you image to the size you wish. By just sliding your finger away from the image or pushing inward towards the laptop (in my case) in the image above.

TIP 3

The following riddle demonstrates using the ‘verse icon’ from the tool bar ( it looks like a small quill pen) in order to write your poems. The sub-headers were added by using the Header Icon. Both of these icons are found in the Text’ area. Which is the very first category of icons listed.

As in most things you have explore and try out things in order to see what works best for your until everything becomes familiar. I am still learning and exploring.

Until the next post. Happy blogging😊

About aquene7

I am a mother, a grandmother and Christian, all an essential part of who I am. I happened upon Blogging and found out how to mesh something I have done through out my life which was encouraging those who were friends and family and my love of writing. In doing my usual personal development I came in to the world of coaching and totally fell in love with it and I am currently studying to become a Personal Performance/Life Coach with The Coaching Academy. I absolutely love writing and thought this would be good way to combine these three passions in one place. I hope you find my blog does what it says on the tin, which is to encourage readers with positive and motivational posts:-) Update: 23/3/14: I finally decided to put a face to my blog:-)
