When starting a blog, there are so many components on what you need to do and have for your website. One thing for sure is a killer about page. Your about page is where readers and brands can learn more about you, what your focus for your blog will be, and services you may offer plus more.
Before you start your blog, it’s important to know why you are starting it and what you’re going to write about so you’re not all over the place. Your about page should have at least 2 sections, one section for your blog and one section about yourself. You can add more if you choose, for example a section highlighting your press or brands you’ve worked with.
ABOUT THE BLOG
Your blog section should start with some sort of call to action or rhetorical question. This will get your readers thinking and interested to read more. Next you need to explain what your blog is about. This lets the reader determine if your blog is something they are interested in. You should also add what you will be doing for the reader, why should they stay? If you want to help them, let them know. If you want to inspire them, tell them that. No matter what you want to do, it’s important to tell them and give your reader a reason to stay and let them know that it will be worth their while.
This section of your ‘About’ page should very much be personalised to reflect your personality. Although you have a lot of freedom here, I do suggest including a few key things:
1)Your full name; this will make your readers feel more connected to you rather than just knowing you as ‘Hannah The Fashion Guru’.
2)A bit about your life: where you’re from, career, family etc.
3)What you enjoy/your hobbies; this will give a general idea of what your blog will be about.
4)What you’re passionate about; what lights a fire within you, this will help your readers get to know you better and connect with you if they are passionate about the same sorts of things.
Super simple but straight to the point on how to put your about page together. I hope this helped you whether you’re just starting out or still trying to get the hang of everything. Good luck!
