That means it’s essential that the “first glimpse” anyone has of your blog is a good one; namely that it looks professional, interesting and relevant enough that it’ll grab them by the eyeballs and drag them straight into your carefully-constructed blog posts. Whilst there are a number of ways to do this, as someone who has been launching and writing blogs for almost a decade, here are the elements (in no particular order) that I’ve found to have the greatest impact on my “time on site” and “bounce rate” across dozens of blogs.
