Blog design ideas that will save you time

Are you looking for blog design ideas that will save you time? I have a few design ideas for you that can add some new sparkle and will save you time creating content. These tasks are DIY friendly if you know your way around the block editor and Kadence Elements. OR they are great for a VIP Day priority list.

Recently, I had a productive and fun VIP day with Katie from La Jolla Mom. Below are a few of the highlights from our day and how you could use them to update your content, create time-saving shortcuts and your posts will look even more fabulous.

Save time with these new blog post design ideas:

New Page Template

I designed a new page template to increase brand recognition and create posts faster than the speed of light. Katie shares travel tips and reviews on her blog. Now when visitors want to check out her opinion on the restaurants, museums, hotels, etc., or a particular destination, they can easily find her content and will stay on the page longer.

Once the draft page was precisely how Katie wanted it, I created a custom design library in her WordPress Dashboard with custom pages and block collections. Going forward, she can just click two buttons, and all the formatting, blocks, and styles are ready to go!

Time-saving tip #1: You can put this to use for seasonal gift guides and product reviews!

On-Brand Customized Block For Listicle Posts

There is no denying that listicle posts are popular! A listicle post changes the format of traditional storytelling by turning a post into a styled list post.  Lists are easy for your readers to scan to find what they are looking for. A robust list will engage your audience and encourage them to keep scrolling. If you are monetizing your blog, that means more ad placements.

Listicles are great for SEO by allowing you to include more keywords. According to Semrush, posts with lists do about 2x better than posts without a list. Make sure your list answers any question that is in your title.

Time-saving tip #2: A listicle post would be great for holiday content like craft projects, party plans, how-to guides, gift guides, or product reviews.

Here’s an example of custom blocks:

An Author Box

Are you bored with the generic author box on your WordPress site? I can create a prettier version of your author box. Our imaginations only limit the possibilities.

Time-saving tip #3: For fun swap your photo to coordinate with the season or add some links to your seasonal posts. Swapping back to your regular author box after the holidays is easy.

 Here’s what Katie said about her VIP day: 

“I just finished my second VIP day with Thauna. We worked together to tweak some design features on my existing theme and to make a new page template. It’s a pretty easy process as we chat throughout the day about how things are looking – which is always pretty great when she’s finished. I’ll book again when I have a new list of to-dos!”
