To make my blog more effective and professional I needed to create a system for my blog to make the content I post more concise. There were some elements I needed to organise:
- Appropriate theme
- Image size/template
- Consistent text layout
I changed the theme to an internal free WordPress theme called “The Writr”. This was more appropriate for my blog as was presented nicely, had a clear banner at the site to navigate the page and had a large enough column for the content I post.
I also created a template image size on photoshop so each image that I post on my blog is 730 pixels wide.
There are also some elements I need to remember for future posts:
- Use bullet points
- Reference image sources
- keep to set image size
- Tag posts
- Categorise posts appropriately
- Allow click-through for high-resolution image
- Scan drawing in high quality
If I stick to this system for my blog I hope to get a better quality and more concise blog that will be more professional and something I am proud to show potential future employers.
