Ways To Make Your Blog Look Professional
You do not need to necessarily have a super professional looking blog but it would help increase both traffic and followers. It would also help if you are thinking of attracting sponsors or working with other blogs as more companies are likely to work with you if you have a very professional looking blog. Anyway, here are some ways to make your blog look professional:
One of the first things people tend to notice is whether or not your post has been edited. It may not seem like a big deal and it may seem like your writing is fine but a lot of times when you reread your post you will find little mistakes you didn’t even realize you had made. Make sure to read through it at least once to check for spelling errors and grammar mistakes. A well edited post shows the reader that you have put a lot of work and effort into it and looks really professional.
2. Use High Quality Pictures
To make your posts seem more professional be sure to use high quality images. It looks much more professional and you’ll be more likely to get sponsors or companies that want to work with you.
3. Create Social Media Pages
Advertise your blog on social media. Most professional blogs do tend to have social media pages such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Another really great place to create a profile on is LinkedIn. Here you can broaden your professional connections and also find jobs.
4. Organize Your Blog
If you want your blog to look professional you have to make sure it is well organised. Make sure it has specific categories and tags the reader can use to find specific posts.
5. Sound Professional
This sounds a little obvious but try to sound professional by doing things such as avoiding too many contractions. I am totally guilty of breaking this rule and I tend to use contractions a lot but this is where editing comes in. When you reread your post make sure to get rid of any contractions that are unnecessary or anything that doesn’t sound professional.
I hope these ways to make your blog look professional were helpful. Let me know in the comments what are some ways to make your blog look professional that you use. Or simply stop by and say hi.

Thank you for the great tips Pooja
You’re welcome glad you enjoyed them!
Thank you Pooja
Yeah, the contractions are something I think about. You want to sound natural and not too wooden. But if it’s too free-floating, people might not take the content seriously. Tough call. You nailed it.
BTW, I’m finding the free Grammarly app for Chrome and the Grammarly keyboard for Android a godsend. 🙂
I’ve actually heard of Grammarly is it really all it’s hyped up to be??
lol… well i like it. I use it in conjunction with power thesaurus (also a Chrome addon). For an old school boy like me who grew up with paper writing aids, it’s all magic!
Haha well I’ll check it out and see if it helps. Thanks for the information!
Thanks for tips

A conversation about self-improvement… those are great tips.
Excellent points! Thanks for sharing them. I definitely agree that images are important and that if you use images you need to choose high-quality ones. There are lots of image resources out there.
Thank you so much and yes using high quality images always helps!
Good pointers, thank you! Is there a trick to using GIFs on our blogs? I’ve tried several times and they never work out for me. Any advice appreciated.
Thank you! I’m not sure if this will help but I usually just copy paste the gifs. Or try to download the gif and add it as media. Hope that helps!
I’ll give it another try, thanks!
You’re very welcome!

Hi Pooja. Interesting tips on blogging. Can you suggest how does one get more followers on blogs?
Thanks. I actually have a post about it if you’re interested https://lifesfinewhine.wordpress.com/2018/07/10/how-to-get-more-followers-on-your-blog-for-free/
Wow I feel like I need to revamp my entire blog after reading this lol Many thanks for posting this!:)
Lol good luck with that 😂
I agree. When I create short stories, and the first thing I look for is feedback. This is because it lets me know what people think about my story. They can also help you become a better writer.Great advice.
Thanks glad you agree!
Thanks for the tips. I’m guilty of using (overusing?) contractions but, as earthpages.org noted, it’s a delicate balance between trying for a conversational tone without coming off as unprofessional. But then, I just started my blog #ReadMyLips and really haven’t considered trying to cash in on it. That was never my intent. Simply a vehicle for posting book reviews and the occasional self-expression.
I’m glad you enjoyed the post and best of luck with blogging you’ll get the hang of it soon enough!
Woah! Great post. Very helpful enough for me to know where I was lacking. Keep Glittering, love TGA by Misha 😊👍
Thanks I’m so happy to hear it helped!
Very helpful. The high quality picture is a struggle. I haven’t posted a single picture of myself
Yeah it can be hard to get high quality pictures sometimes.
I think I’ll post myself soon. When I first started blogging it even before I was so adamant about being anonymous. It was really more about not wanting to be rejected because of my looks and just seen for my content. Have you ever felt that way.
Yeah I understand how you feel about being concerned about being judged for your looks. It took a while before I put a profile pic but honestly I realised over time that it really doesn’t matter what you look like if your content is good.
Lovely read with excellent advice! Thanks so much for sharing such great tips! 🙂
Thank you so much!!
Thanks for the great tips. Very helpful for a beginner like myself.
You’re welcome hope they help!
This is fantastic advice. Thanks so much. I’m very new to blogging so any good advice is gold dust. So looking forward to reading your other posts 🙂
Thank you and I hope it helps you out! I know how difficult blogging can be but it’s totally worth it!
