BLOGGING 101: 5 THINGS TO INCLUDE IN YOUR ABOUT PAGE

9.20.2017

f your a blogger who needs some inspiration regarding your about page, your not alone! While putting mine together, I browsed other blogs, and Pinterest to strengthen my own layout and content. The great thing about blogging is that each blog is different, therefore create your own rules here, and have fun with it! Just keep in mind to have everything align with your brand, or overall theme of the site. Make your about section, jump off the page letting everyone know who you are, and what you stand for, and don't forget about these five little things.


1. YOUR BLOG STORY: 
How did your blog come to be? Tell your readers why you began blogging, when it was founded, and how it's transformed with time. Make this personal, as your readers really enjoy getting to know the blogger's heart!

2. PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT: 
Now that your readers understand the process of your blog, share a mission/purpose statement. Explain to your readers the whole focus of this blog, and state your branding well. Talk about what your readers can gain while following along, and what to expect seeing on a monthly basis. Provide information on what makes your blog or business so unique and different than the rest.

3. TELL US ABOUT YOU: 
Providing a clear photo of yourself, and personal information is key when having your readers stick around for years to come. I included a little ten facts about me on my page, or I've seen frequently asked questions. Adding little touches like this not only shares a side of yourself, but a peek into what holds your blog together.

4. CORE VALUES: 
Something I recently added in my about page, was a special part describing my core values. My values here express my overall goal to always maintain on the blog, and also a few things I remind myself while I blog and receive feedback. This is just getting deeper in providing my readers with encouragement, and also so express my faith which they will always see/read on the blog.

5. ASK AWAY: 
Your about page is almost finished! Something extra I love to include is a spot where my readers can ask me anything. Once they have read your about page, they may be left with some questions, in need of advice, or if you run a business than perhaps an inquiry, therefore provide your email where they can reach you, or provide a link that allows them to fill out a form. You've shared a lot of information, now let your readers be involved of the process!

  8. This is a great list! Even though I've been blogging for 10 years or something like that now, I'm still not so great at updating my pages like this. This post gives me some good motivation to revisit my About Me page! Thank you :)
