Okay, time for another Feedback Friday post.
Saint Patrick’s Day has everyone thinking green, so I thought it might be a good time to expand on what Tom revealed earlier in the week, which was how to use color to bring your blog to life … something a lot of new bloggers tend to ignore as they juggle everything else during the start up of their first blog.
Today, I want to build on that topic by taking a look at your blog and logo and providing you some feedback, whether your logo was created in a logo design contest or by a graphic design agency … if you’re up for it. Submit the URL of your blog and I’ll check it out and post some honest, blogger-to-blogger feedback.
How does the color of your blog impact your visitors?
If you’re like me, you’ve thought about how some of the most popular blogs employ a splash of color in order to create a more unique, branded experience for readers. If you’ve spent any time reading about blogging, then you’ve probably noticed that both ProBlogger and Copyblogger employ a darker red, which sends a passionate vibe to many. The awesome thing about this part of blogging is there’s no right or wrong way to go about selecting a color. My friend over at Blog Tyrant uses gold, which I don’t think is used anywhere else. Here at Fuel Your Blogging we use a deep orange, Kiesha over at WeBlogBetter uses green, and over at CreativeBlogger I use teal.
So where do you stand?
Submit the URL of your blog in the comments below and find out what a visitor feels from the color you’re using.
