How to setup a theme when you have a live blog

Suppose, you have a live (running) blog that is getting a good traffic every day. But you are not satisfied with your current theme and you want to give your blog another look with a fantastic theme. At this situation, what you would like to do? Would you setup your theme openly or do anything else? If you ask this question to me, my answer always will be No.


There is a few couple of reasons behind it. I can miss my readers. How? Suppose, you have entered my weblog before a few seconds and you are getting a new look after each reloading. I am sure; you will be bewildered and abandon my blog as soon as possible. Even, this entire thing was happened with me before a few days.
You know that I have an addiction to read various articles from different blogs. And that’s why I entered a blog to read about latest Google Panda update, I had completed my whole reading and wanted to read another one. When I clicked on that particular link to read the second post, a different theme was appeared. At this moment, I could not determine what is going on. Then my only thought was that there is something malicious and after a few seconds I came to know the real story about that blog. I think this thing is everyday happening with several bloggers. And that’s why they are getting missing their visitors.
