If you don't know what a design system is or how it can benefit your website, now's your chance to find out.
What is a design system? If you’ve never heard of a design system before, you’re not alone. For those of us not dabbling in graphic design or pursuing it as a career, you can think of it essentially as a design template for websites. A design system sets out the building blocks that a graphic designer will use to build websites with. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of a design system and touch on design systems specifically for WordPress.
A design system might be very generic blocks—i.e., wireframes, a group of font styles, some button styles, logo usage, the header and footer design, etc. Or, it may be very specific, such as the entire brand and style guidelines for a company from top to bottom.
As web development has matured, it became apparent that while print designers had Illustrator and InDesign, there really wasn’t a comparable tool with which to lay out a website, visually. Many designers used Photoshop, but that was very much like using a sledgehammer to hang a picture. Sure, it would probably work, but you’d most likely end up with a very large hole.
Then along came Sketch in late 2010. Sketch, a software built solely for

What pushes WordPress users to share plugin reviews? Learn the reasons behind them and see the different types of plugin reviews you could get!
Reviews are the factor that can make or break your WordPress plugin. Social proof, like ratings, has a huge effect on users’ decisions. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to your users and encourage them to give your WordPress plugin a good rating.
By understanding why people leave reviews (both good and bad) and responding to their criticism or requests, you can get a better understanding of what they’re looking for, what’s bothering them, and try to turn those insights into more download and five-star ratings.
The Role of Plugin Reviews
Good or bad, people love to leave feedback on a product they’ve used. And that goes for WordPress plugins too! Sharing their experiences, reporting bugs and issues, or praising the creators, reviews bring a community together.
And ratings help both users and developers. For users, it gives them a way to evaluate the quality of a plugin at a glance, and research deeper to see if it has the features they need. If a plugin has a lot of high ratings, you know it’s safe and is at least worth testing out. Meanwhile, several one-star reviews may indicate that it has unresolved issues or poor support.
We are sure your blog content is great, but for it to garner all the attention that it can, it needs more than just your thoughts and opinions in written form; it needs featured images. A featured image is sort of a teaser for what the article is about, its thumbnail when the post is shared on social media and other platforms.
We’re sure your blog content is great, but for it to garner all the attention that it can, it needs more than just your thoughts and opinions in written form; it needs featured images. A featured image is sort of a teaser for what the article is about, its thumbnail when the post is shared on social media and other platforms. The average person is bombarded with content on a daily basis and definitely has enough blogs and blog posts to choose from.

Product transparency is a movement that consumer good brands need to address. Here's why displaying product ingredients on a CPG website is important and tips for doing it.
Product transparency simply means being open and honest about the ingredients in your consumer packaged goods (CPG). Growing up, I was never concerned with the ingredients in products. I consumed a lot of food and used a lot of skin and hair products that weren’t good for my body or health. One day, I realized that I had lost most of my hair and it was falling out at a rapid pace. Thanks to the internet and social media, I learned about the natural hair movement and how to read ingredients in products. I learned exactly what ingredients were good for my hair and which ones to stay away from. My hair flourished and grew longer than it ever had before. I then started to pay attention and research all ingredients in my food and skincare products. Product transparency has become a movement not only for me but for everyone else! That’s why displaying ingredients on your consumer goods website is vital for both your customers and your brand. Consumers everywhere are paying attention to the ingredients that we are consuming and the potential negative effects those ingredients have. Consumers want to know the ingredients of their food, hair, skin, makeup, household, baby products

If your site is still running slow, it might be time to consider migrating your website to a new hosting provider.  => Survey Your Requirements
When migrating your WordPress website and choosing your next host, some things worth considering are:

Be cautious with budget hosts (typically, $8 per month) that advertise UNLIMITED bandwidth or traffic. While cheap vendors might be sufficient for small blogs, often several thousands of websites are being hosted on the same server, fighting over the same system resources, which can result in slower speeds for more complex websites.
If your website is critical to your business success, it’s best to go with a company that allocates service by visitor count and typically starts with pricing around $29 per month. Often, when choosing a host based on metered traffic, your website is hosted on faster servers with a minimum guarantee of system resources.

Good design isn't just about aesthetics. Just as important: site usability, ease in navigation, & accessibility. Learn more about web design best practices.
What causes the large discrepancy between what some WordPress developers charge compared to others? Answering this question requires consideration for the reason behind why you want a website in the first place. Some developers focus on the literal final product: the combination of code that results in a pleasant enough website design.
But developers with marketing savvy concern themselves with more than just building something that looks nice. They act as consultants to clients who are looking to accomplish specific goals with their websites.
With this in mind, hiring someone to build a website who doesn’t seem interested in/doesn’t ask questions about your end goals is a red flag. It’s important to call out the fact that even the most beautiful web design may not be ideal when it comes to getting visitors to convert into customers.
That said, 94% of people judge your credibility based on your website’s design.
So, instead, you need to focus on using your design to offer the ideal user experience. You must make it easy for visitors to find the information they sought by visiting your website in the first place while guiding them towards goal conversion activities.
Some of these misconceptions were in some way, true at one point, but we’ve since gone a long way to still take them seriously.
Even though WordPress has been the top platform that deals with web development and management for years, there’s still a surprising number of commonly accepted myths and misconceptions that people cling on to. Some of these misconceptions were, in some way, true at one point, but we’ve since gone a long way to still take them seriously.
To ease your mind into using WordPress, we’ll debunk the five most common of these misconceptions and provide you with the truth of how things really stand now.
WordPress is only for bloggers
When WordPress first launched, it was intended for running blogs – that part is true. In the years since, however, it has evolved so much that it can run any type of site you can think of. As we’ve already mentioned, it’s the most widespread platform out there, and all of those users can’t be only using it just for blogs.
The reason WordPress has evolved from such a specific purpose beginning to a tool that encompasses so much more is its nature. Being an open-source program means it available for anyone to improve upon it, from which steams a virtually endless supply of plugins, widgets, themes, editors, etc. all of which

Think of your website as your online home, and your domain name as your residential address. That is what users will type on the address bar of their browser before they can fully access your website. The web hosting, on the other hand, is where your site’s files are stored.
