Go to your website. You’re used to seeing it and you’re familiar with your own design. It’s easy to navigate and to you, you see nothing wrong with it. In fact, you’re so accustomed to it that you start to not notice the details. First time visitors however, do notice.
Look through your website. One of the questions you need to ask yourself is if some of the features or information is even necessary. Are your visitors clicking on all your links, looking at that graphic, or using all of websites features? If not, then why do you have it? Clutter may drive first-time visitors away. You want to feature what’s actually important on your website.
Never put something on your blog because you feel it looks good but adds no real value.
