One of the reasons can be blog design. So what you should do? Just don't make your blog a garbage truck. Your blog should look simple and professional. It should be comfortable to read posts. As an example, you should not use a red background behind black post fonts. You should use a whitish background for that. 

You can use a blogger theme to design your blog. Those themes will not create these kinds of problems. But, if you want you may use Theme from outside, But you should be careful.
