It very important to use proper fonts which will make your online blog presentable. Fonts provide readability to your blog post. One has to use proper fonts in different segments of the article. Like use the largest font size may be h1 for post title, use h2 or h3 heading style for sub – headings.
Use a moderate font size – neither too big nor too short, for rest of your content size ranging between 11 or 12. Also use a font style which can be easily read by your visitors. Do not use a too stylish one.

2. Proper indentation of blog post
Indentation of paragraphs, page margins provides a good visibility to the post. Even line spacing is a type of indentation. By the word indentation we basically mean separation of edges.
Coinciding edges like the ones of two paragraphs, two lines, content and the page border, etc; makes the article look nasty. These kind of minor stuffs contribute a lot to your blog post.
3. Less use of ads in blog post
Ads imparts some color to online blogs but too much of anything is bad. Too many ads hides the actual content. Readers move their focus away from the post and concentrate on ads where they might find some lucrative offers like discounts or prizes.
Sliding or rotating ads are even more irritating because it confuses the readers by blurring out the vision of the entire page. This draws away the attention of the reader and they sometimes end up in closing the window.
4. Focus on cross-browsing compatibility
Your website should look the same in all browsers. These things can be missed out at times by the bloggers. They view their website only in one browser and not in others. The visibility which appears on google chrome may look different in mozilla firefox or internet explorer. All readers do not use the same browsers
Basically the indentation, the page alignment and the image position changes. So check these factors thoroughly before uploading your website on the web server.
Uniform compatibility hikes the presentation of the blog post.
5. Optimizing for mobile applications
The visibility of the web pages differ in mobile applications and computers or laptops. The ones who are most of the time moving and traveling hardly get time to sit on their PC.
The smart phones now-a-days suffice the requirement of computers. Online blogs must be optimized for mobile applications so that they can be viewed properly in mobile phones also.
