-What About the ‘About’ Page?

Posted by | .

ABOUT? WHO ARE YOU?

It is a mere afterthought on so many blog and websites yet the ‘About’ page is the second most viewed page on every site. Not only that but also the second destination of nearly every new visitor that comes aboard.

It is really amazing how many bloggers totally ignore the opportunity to say something about who they are, what their goals are, and what their site is all about. It gives new visitors reasons to come back and even subscribe to your future posts. The ‘About’ page is really all about building up your readership.

On my sites I also include a ‘Contact’ link for those who want to get in touch with me for some reason or another. I usually set up a separate email just for that purpose in order to easily control the spam and yet make it possible for readers to actually send me a message or observation.

Here’s a good article I found on Problogger.net with suggestions on what you might want to include in you ‘About’ page:

    I agree that it’s one of the most important things you can do with a blog. I have written and rewritten my about page about a dozen times, and even then it’s almost impossible to make it what I think it really needs to be. Since it’s really a personal blog about my life as a Christian in the Navy, my focus changes slightly from time to time, so my about page does as well. It’s just part of life I guess, at least for a personal blog.
