Dr Tanya of “Salted Caramel” is back with another blogging question this week and it is one that I feel quite strongly about.
How important is the About page of your blog?
I think that the about page of a blog is very important. When I read an interesting post by a blogger that I’ve not come across before I like to visit their “About” page to see what their interests are and if I would like to follow their blog. I’ve noticed though, that many bloggers these days don’t have one which is a shame. It’s such a good opportunity to introduce yourself and explain what your blog is about.
What constitutes the perfect About page?
That’s up to the individual I think. Some people just list facts, some are funny, some write a short bio. I do think that a good About page should be a place for the writer to express their personality.
How often do you think an About page needs to be updated, and when is the last time you updated yours’ ?
I thought I had better check mine. It has a terrible photo of me taken in 2018 and it mentions living in Sisters Beach so I’d say that I last redid it about 2020. It’s pretty accurate fact wise but I might redo it just to make it a bit more interesting. I wish I had a better photo but I hate having my picture taken. I think it is good to update your page when your life circumstances change but it doesn’t have to be every year.
I’m glad you share my method of reading the about page before following a blogger.
And yes, I agree that it does not need to be updated unless facts or views change.
