Detox your blog

Hello everyone,

The first month of the year is always about change and being better about yourself but there isn’t many for your blog. So here are some ways to detox and make your blog better.

Here are 4 steps to help you improve your blog. (hover over the images to read the captions)

Change your theme

Changing your theme will give a fresh clean look and make your blog more alive. Play around with the colour themes or change the theme totally. I did that to my blog in December for a new look for this year but it’s never to late to freshen up your blog now.

Check Broken Links

Every week set your goal to go back to 20 posts (or more) and see if your old post links work. This is great if someone is looking at your old posts and everything works.

Change the style of your Photos

Improve your photography by adding props to your flat lays or even add a theme to the pictures you post on your blog. This will really reflect who you are.

Add Categories to every postscreen-shot-2017-01-14-at-14-42-48

If most of your posts are Uncategorised than this needs to be fixed. Go through your posts and put a category. It’s like putting your rings in one compartment and your necklaces on the other.

So I hope you all enjoyed this post. Will you use these tips? Make sure to comment below. Have a great day everyone.

    Good advice. I just started but I try to at least once a week check the links on my posts as well as update them if I have a post that connects to it.
