It will give an idea on who you are and what is your blog all about.
After that you should change your blog template as the default template is quite generic and simple.
You can get your blog templates from gooyabitestemplates.com
To change your blog template you need to navigate to Layout options where you can adjust the settings as per your need.
You can also add your own logo to your blog to give it a professional look.
