For example, you ever wonder why certain colors make you feel excited or calm? Like the color RED! (see? I’m already excited) There is NO mistake why Target is FULL of red lol! Target is the devil, but that’s a post for another day. A soft blue on the other hand, makes you think of calmness and serenity.
There is a method to the color madness, trust me. Certain colors aren’t used in a design just because they look pretty; there is an underlying reason. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to teach you color theory in one blog post.
If your blog is stuck in a rut, think about adding a pop of color. You can do that (if you’re just a little HTML savvy) by changing the color of the words you place in bold, change your link colors or change the background color of your blog. You could even get a cool banner to add to the top of your blog. Whatever you decide, give your viewers something aesthetically pleasing to look at. Think about your audience when choosing your color palette and then go for it!
