So spend more time on it and give it the time it needs to make it unique. To this add a header and background image you like and make the appearance of the blog look pleasant. Avoid dark colors and negative language.
All the WordPress users have a custom blog icon “W” representative of the WordPress site. Thus add a blog icon to your website as it will appear in the visitor browser address. Thus choose it with diligence and make it unique.
Widgets reduce the work of the blogger to so many levels and widgets make the blog look more professional and sophisticated. There are so many available from displaying tweets, to Instagram photos to archives and highlights the maximum viewed posts. They add more content to the website and make the blog look unique and different. But also make sure to choose them wisely. You don’t want your blog to look cluttered. The content is the main focus here and widgets make things easier for the viewers as well as the users.
