WHAT SHOULD INCLUDE IN YOUR ABOUT ME PAGE?
You are not a celebrity. Readers are not inclined to read what you wrote on your about me page.
So it should include some definite things. So that your readers will engage with it.
I’m sharing some must have points to include in your blog’s About me page:
1. BENEFITS FOR YOUR READERS
Keep in mind that your blog’s About me page isn’t about you. It is about your readers.
So start with them. Tell how they can be benefited from your blog. What they will get from your blog. Show them how they can get it.
2. ABOUT YOUR BLOG
Tell your readers what is your blog about. Why your blog exists. In this section, show them your mission, vision, and goal. Clearly describe your readers how you will achieve that.
3. ABOUT YOU
After reading your mission, vision, and goal, your readers somehow want to know about the man behind the blog.
So, tell your readers who you are. What you do in real life. What your status – family, social, political etc.
But be careful in this section. Just tell what you want to tell. You don’t need to share your private life. Just tell, what your readers may want to know. But don’t tell your life story because of you love that. You readers may feel irritating because of that.
4. INCLUDE YOUR RESOURCE PAGE’S LINK
There is a vast possibility that after reading the About me page, your readers can leave your blog if you don’t show them where to go after reading the page.
So, show them where they should go. Link best posts in your About me page. You should also insert blog subscription option in the page.
