We liked the way it shows bold title and lines above each category blog. The featured posts will highlight post title and thumbnails in different sizes. So, visitors can view many category posts on homepage and jump over to any instantly.
Widget Areas : This is common feature for every blog or other WordPress templates, but we still take is seriously. Because, magazine or blog type websites can use widget areas to increase page-views and decrease bounce rate. If you place right widget in right place then it can prove as a great navigation for website. Mostly, sidebar widget is ideal to display Recent blog posts, Category featured posts, Sponsor banners and comments.
The footer is also best widget area located in the bottom of the website. This is still good place to share post entries, social links, contacts or author detail.
