Creating a blog using Elementor gives you many advantages. Say you have a blog in which the posts consist of three main categories: reviews, story, and news. You can use the theme builder feature of Elementor to create a different layout for each category. You can also add different elements to each layout.
For instance, for the review posts, you can add elements like dynamic star rating, while on the news articles you can add elements like news ticker. You can also add supporting elements like table of contents, email opt-in form, social sharing buttons, and so on. All these elements can be added without installing additional WordPress plugins.
Another advantage of creating a blog using Elementor is that you can design your blog homepage — as well as other pages — yourself. If you have no idea about the design, you can use a template kit. There are a bunch of Elementor template kits designed specifically for blog. Here are six of them.
