My Blog Is Ugly

Yeah, I admit, this blog’s theme is ugly. I am actually considering to get someone design a unique WordPress theme for me, I just don’t have the budget yet since my earnings are already budgeted to something bigger this year. I can still live with this ugly theme for another one year. πŸ™‚

But having a ugly theme has an advantage too, well, in my case where my theme is ugly but I have a high number of subscribers and traffic.

It makes people curious. How come this ugly blog got so many RSS subscribers? How come this ugly blog got so many visitors? How come this ugly blog got so many comments on his post? What’s in it? Is it because of the blogger’s extraordinary cuteness? Or is he simply an assh0le? πŸ™‚

So, they try to read my post. They try to satisfy their curiosity. They dig my posts and then realize that they have to subscribe to my RSS feed. This blog is so ugly, so cluttered with ads that they can’t stand seeing it. But they are curious enough to find the answers to their questions.

So they subscribe to my RSS feeds. Only to find out that there’s no turning back. They are hooked. Their Adsense earnings went up after following my advises. Their traffic increased from pinay $candal, vedio and qoutes. They learned something from me. They wanted more from me. πŸ™‚

Don’t worry. We are all learning how to make more money online. I’m just sharing my experience. And I will continue to share tips and tricks that I’ve tested. Tricks that works for me. Tricks that might help you as well.

Ok, I think, I digress. So, let’s go back to the topic. My blog theme is ugly. And because of that, I know that people kept coming back not because my blog is beautiful, but because they love my content. And I’m loving it! Tara na sa McDo!

  1. Your theme is not ugly. I like it. Just to show how much I like it, I want to steal it. Can I?

  2. Is it because of the bloggerÒ€ℒs extraordinary cuteness? – huh??? di ko ma gets to.. hehehe

    uy libre mo ako sa mcdo? tara! hahaha!

    P.S.: mas pangit akin.. header pa lang nakaka suka na! πŸ˜€ wahahahaha!

  3. @noemi… sure, nakuha ko lang din to sa themes.wordpress.net πŸ™‚

    @jehzeel… LOL! pataasan tayo ng ranking sa “My Blog Is Ugly” na keyword? May nagsesearch kaya nun? πŸ˜€

  4. Ok lang ugly yun blog wag lang face ugly πŸ˜‰ (or kung ugly face at least malakas adsense earnings)

  5. uyyy, the humorous side of marghil… money making guru hehehe…

  6. Ahaha. Another seo thing? Plus good point Marhgil! Hehehe.

  7. “Dont judge a blog by its layout” – kaw nagsabi nyan diba

  8. ehehe… aaminin ko… nung una kong nasilayan ang blog na ito… ndi ko type ung theme… pero bkt kaya lagi p rin akong nahahatak pabalik dito? ibig sabihin, wala sa appearances yan… nasa content… ehehe…

  9. @vhonne

    baka inlove kana………………………………………………………… sa blog

  10. ndi ako mahilig sa blog dati… ngaun lng… ehehe

    OT: ahaha… teka lng ha… lalaki ako… dami kc nag-aakala n babae ako dahil sa name ko… von carlo po real name ko…

  11. Is true that a good theme attract more readers but only the good content does. If you have this readers mount is not for nothing. Btw your theme its ok πŸ˜€

  12. Simple themes always look better. I actually like your theme, but that advertisement bar that appears on top of every page is kind of annoying. πŸ™‚

  13. ok lang yan.. kahit sabihin na pangit (DAW) ung template .. ung CTR naman ang habol dito e.. heheh.. PANGIT (DAW) ang tempalte pero ang kita naman MAGANDA.. o san ka pa.. e di sa pangit na template na…

  14. Yep, it is ugly but I prefer ugly and clean. πŸ™‚

  15. ok lang na ganito kaysa naman super makulay tapos nakakapagbigay ng seizure.

  16. It’s so easy to change the theme though. Although, I agree with the above comment clean is better.
