The Importance of Using a Unique WordPress Theme
If you’ve used WordPress to blog already then you will know that you have the ability to choose a WordPress theme for your blog, and your options are either choosing a paid or free theme. The difference between the two themes is simple, the free WordPress themes will be available to anyone, but if you buy a WordPress theme then you can make sure it’s unique to your blog only. Now a unique theme isn’t very important for every blog you own, but for your main blog you should make sure you have a unique WordPress theme for numerous reasons. For adsense and niche blogs there isn’t much need to create that unique appeal to the visitors and you don’t need a unique theme for these blogs.
There are lots of reasons why you should use a unique theme on your main blog and we’re going to take a look at some of the reasons right now. The most obvious reason is too create a unique appearance and appeal to your readers. Most of your readers will read other blogs and with over a million blogs and not too many free themes there are a lot of people using the same theme. If you have a unique theme then you will stand out from all of the bloggers using a free theme. Most blog readers also state that they will typically stay longer on a blog that has an appealing and attractive theme.
The most important of your theme is that it functions correctly and is carefully coded so that everything is clean looking. If you don’t have these skills then you should make sure you hire a professional for the job so that it’s done right the first time. Once you have the theme coded you need to ensure you have a very attractive header. You’ll notice a lot of the new bloggers are using cartoons in their headers to create a sharp looking and appealing image for the readers. I think it’s a great idea and they look awesome so make sure you have a colourful and attractive header with some sort of a logo. It’s important that you have your own logo in your header so that you can use the header down the road when branding your blog. If it’s a catchy and attractive logo then you’ll typically draw in more visitors and you’ll also be remembered by people by the logo which is the point of a logo, so this is good.
Apart from the header you want to make sure that the sidebar or sidebars are constructed with the readers in mind. You should try blending in all the widgets you plan on using into the sidebars so that they look like there apart of theme. It may take some struggling trying to do this, but in the end you’ll have a very attractive blog that is sure to retain its visitors. Creating your theme to retain visitors is a very important feature that most free theme bloggers never can utilize, so if you use a unique theme you’re one step ahead of most people. Now all you need to do is send traffic to the blog and write great content.
