Site design serves as container and container in our dictionary is item used to contain/store product.
Site content still remains its name; content and content in our dictionary means product we stored in a container.

Do you know that container is always bigger and may be more beauty? But no matter how beauty is our container, what we will be looking forward to, if we get a container is what it contains. That’s why our content must be quality.
Noted? What I mean is that your face may be ugly but do you know that what is inside you is much more important than your beauty because what you would become is inside you.
For example: an ugly rich man and a poor handsome man went to a party…who do you think they will honor most at the party? (Most especially in my region)
An intelligent ugly guy and a handsome average guy sat for examination; will the examiner consider his beauty when marking their script?
Do you know, you can change the world to good or bad with what is inside you? It depends on your focus and what you believe in.
Container is just a camouflage, content is what will need.
Lets come down to internet world, though your site design may attract visitors, but when the a visitor visits he/she will not be scrolling through your site to check the great design you have there, believe it or not, he/she will be scrolling through your site to check the content you have in it.
Same thing goes with real world, when you apply for a job, would you list your achievement in beauty competition you have been in your curriculum vitae (CV)? No, but you will eagerly list your achievement in great educating competition you have been without hesitating…right?
I remember reading an Angela Carter quote “a book is simply the container of an idea like a bottle; what is inside the book is what matters”. And to me this quote also goes in line with internet world.
Okay, let change the quote to internet world and this is how it states “A design is simply the container of an idea like a bottle; what is inside the designing which is content is what matters”.
And like Martin Luther King Jr. said that he had a dream that his four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judge by the color of their skin; but by the content of their character - I think his dream is coming through now and to me, the nation he stated in his quote means internet because this is the real nation I thought no one discriminate or segregate and everybody is judging by the content of the site they visit.
Let me take you back a little bit; container must be bigger in size and more beauty but content must have value than container. That is why a person must not be rated by their look; you may be nothing to some people and do something with your inner ability which is content.
Content is a king and will always be.
I rest my case here; hope I will be judged right by the judges reading my views because I’m still a learner in blogging world.
