Let’s talk about design in a different way: is the purpose of your blog clear to those who visit it? How does their experience differ when they visit on a small phone verses a laptop? Is it clear how you want people to engage with your content, or do you assume they know what to do?
In this presentation, designer Alison Knott will help you evaluate your blog’s purpose from a design and usability perspective. If you have trouble getting readers to engage with your content, or want to be more objective with the look of your blog, this talk is for you!
