1. Establish a consistent visual style.
Make your visuals easily recognisable and give them a cohesive feel by sticking to an aesthetic.
This could mean applying the same filter on all photos, using illustrations only, or only using photos featuring women.
Take my visuals, for example: I only use greyscale photos, and I apply the same set of textures on all of them.
Figure out an aesthetic that best suits your blog!

2. Check the colour contrast between your background and text.
Make sure that the contrast between your background and font colour is high, so your audience won’t have to strain their eyes to read your words. This is especially important if you have an older audience!
Use this colour contrast checker to check if your colour contrast ratio passes web accessibility standards.
3. Use the rule of thirds to compose your visuals.
The easiest way to improve your visuals is to apply the rule of thirds:
