Just provide a better look to your blog. You would get positive feedback for it. Believe me, if your blog contains a crappy look, most of the people will avoid reading your blog whether you garnished it with high-quality posts.
There are many free and premium themes available for your blog that you can use to give an attractive look to your blog. I am also trying to customize my blog’s layout and design.
Having a lucrative design does not mean that you would use heavy images on your blog. Images must be optimized to reduce the loading time of your blog because it’s a crucial constraint that may affect your traffic.

The owner of Popular Blog Shoutmeloud – Harsh Agarwal accepts this fact that in earlier days of his blogging journey he kept changing his blog themes that was his one of the biggest mistakes. Therefore, never keep changing your blog themes every day. Indeed, your blog layout is an image of your blog. If you keep changing it, it shows instability which may affect your blog reputation.
Content is King:
I do not want to pronounce a quote here that you generally read on almost each blog. However, it’s a fact that content is king. You should create quality content because people love to share resourceful content.
If your content gives a solution of any specific problem, believe me, you are going to get several shares. I cannot define the numbers of shares because it depends on the size of the problem and the solution which has provided in your post.
