Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?


Latest facelifts of top blogs from the Graphic Design World like “Smashing Magazine” and “Pro Blog Design” have left me puzzledL Undoubtedly, both the blogs have come up with classy minimal changes but the question is how to know it’s time to make-up your blog face? Surely, there comes time when a change has to arrive on our blog but important is that this progress happens at the right time.

Lately, twice I planned to get my blog revamped but a second thought held me back “Now or later?” A blog redesign certainly has its own benefits, for which many bloggers are quiet active with their redesign activities but I think it’s a very critical decision.

Therefore, today I decided to list all the points which would hint us that it’s time to redecorate our blog.  Beautiful and sophisticated redesigned blogs are constantly appearing in the blogosphere; let’s see if we can also get our blog on the lists.

1 ) Improve the functionality of your blog: Many things which are seen on other design blogs but are missing from our blog like Social Bookmarking Buttons, Feed Subscription Form, Subscriber Stats, RSS Buttons, Portfolio Showcase and lot more. Redesign is an opportunity to have them on your blog.
2 ) Cleaning up the mess: You will agree that after every 3-4 months we decide to arrange our cupboards and dispose the unnecessary items. Similarly, if your blog appears to be stuffed up, it means you need to get rid of irrelevant material.
3 ) Removing old-fashioned features: Graphic Designing is a field where innovations are introduced every day. Your blog’s bounce rate can explain you that your visitors are not staying longer on your blog. So, include trendy stuff in your blog redesign.
4 ) To save regular visitors from boredom: If your design has been up long enough than your readers would be certainly bored by now of viewing the same old theme. By adding some interesting features, you can well entertain your regular visitors.
5 ) To attract new visitors: waiting for a shoot up in your traffic stats? Come up with a classy redesign and you will see the difference.
6 ) Establishing a brand: If you were not much satisfied with your logo or blog color scheme, after its aunch…here is a chance to come up with a design that reflects the true identity of your niche.
7 ) Making more sales and conversions: If you have an appealing and catchy blog, your visitors will most likely stick to YOU instead of your competitor. However, we can’t ignore the fact that design plays a major role in making a blog successful. As a matter of fact, loyal visitors make up for most of your blog traffic every day.
8 ) Adding trendy components: Being a graphic design blog, it is dedicated to the latest trends of the industry, so it is important to have a modern design.
9 ) To introduce new segments: Adding new section on your blog, like a weekly compilation of design news with some grasping graphics will add more color and demand to your blog.
10 ) Want to give your competitors a tough time: If you redesign your blog following all the latest trends of the blogosphere, I am sure your competitor will reconsider his blog design too.

Anyhow, all these reasons don’t mean that you have to get your blog redesign ASAP. It’s your blog, and you have all the authorities. Think about it and if you really want to redesign it, then go for it. 

But I need your suggestions….I want to redesign my Graphic Design Blog, do you think it’s the high time??

    Hi, thanks for the message on twitter :)

    Yea it could do with a little updating but mine is also the same and needs a revamp.

    A few suggestions from my point of view charlie. 1 thing i think definitely needs an overhaul on your blog is your right column.

    Some elements have different widths, the spacing between them is random and having the meta widget showing adds nothing. Fixing those would be a big improvement imo.

    I’m in the process of redesigning my art/design blog for a few reasons. One is learn more about templating, another to move things around and make them more visible. I have good content but it’s gotten mucky and wordpress upgrades have changed parts of my blog. I’m happy to spend some time designing and pulling it all together. I should have the new design up in the next week or two.

    I always end up re-designing it for that final reason though I’ve never completed a completely custom design yet. Even so, I’m working on one right now.
    But I like your new design.I liked your old one, but I like this one more.

    Designers tend to fall in love with their artistic creations. It becomes difficult to decide for themselves, and it is always a good idea to ask the people around, as long as their opinions are respected. Ultimately, it is still up to the designer to make his own decisions.

    And keep in mind that Matt Cutt has announced that Google will be giving a penalty to sites that load slowly - starting in January 2010.

    Cut back on the graphic size.
