appetizing The Simple Truth About Blog Design

Do your blog posts look appetizing?




You slave over your blog posts.



You polish each sentence.



You carefully pick each word.



But that isn’t enough.



“Don’t waste your blogging efforts by having an unappetizing blog design”……says Henneke




engagement The Simple Truth About Blog Design

Entice readers by following a few simple rules.




1.  How to select your fonts

Follow these 5 rules to select readable fonts:

  • Simple fonts are proven to work best because they minimize reading efforts.
  • Feel free to pick a serif or non-serif font.
  • Nobody holds a monitor as close as a book. Most people are between20 to 28 inches (50 to 70cm) away from their computer screen. That’s why your font size needs to be much larger on the web than in print.
  • Font size doesn’t matter. What counts is the x-height of your font.
  • Subheadings entice scanners to start reading, so ensure your subheadings stand out. Make them large and in a different color.



2.  How to use design to promote your blog readability

Want to keep people reading?

Follow these 4 rules to focus attention:

  • White space makes your text more comprehensible.
  • The ideal line length is between 50 to 75 characters (including spaces).
  • The vertical distance between lines needs to be just right to make reading pleasurable. As a rule of thumb the optimal line height is 1.5 times the font size.
  • Maximize contrast between the background and the font color, because itenhances readability
