Pick the right template for your blog by finding one that balances content, function and design. Factor the nature of your content, whether it is image-based, word-based or auditory, into your template choice. Some templates focus on images and colors by limiting the on-screen text to a few titles or subtitles, while other templates focus more on text-based content and reduce the presence of imagery.

Carefully choose between a one-, two- or three-column template. More columns means more moving parts, and this can be challenging to new bloggers and overwhelming to readers. Fewer columns leaves room for a cleaner reading area, especially if the blogger wants readers to have good experiences on mobile devices. One rule of thumb is to use two-thirds of the page space with content and one-third of the space with sidebars.

Customize the colors of your blog's background, banner, text and links to create pleasant experiences for your readers. Ask your readers for their reactions to your color scheme, and utilize the feedback to make any necessary improvements.
