There are blogs you open and admire their designs, well organized and magnificent. Such blogs are carefully designed to give a perfect impression to the readers. Some blogs have web designers who know how to build websites via coding while others have opted for premium WordPress themes.
One of the best designed blogs is Tuko which has special designed blog. Tuko has full time employees who develop the blog and do necessary changes from time to time. The website does not use the usual premium WordPress themes.
It’s good to know that first impression counts anywhere, even in blogging. A good looking blog will attract more readers and retain them than a poor one. Speed is also important in boosting the SEO of a website.
Here is a list of the best and well-designed blogs in Kenya:
- Tuko News
Tuko News uses a special template which is developed from scratch. Its design is tailored to suit advertisers demands; it’s also easy to navigate and captures the most essential content on the front page.
A reader can also be able to see the total views per story, the most popular stories and the most shared. There is also a section for Swahili stories.
