How To Write An About Me Page For A Blog – Keep It Simple
In this article, I will talk a little bit about how to create an about me page for your blog. I think a lot of people get very self-conscious and a bit scared when they come to write an about me page because it is quite daunting and hard to “big yourself up”. Hopefully, my tips here will make it a little easier for you and create trust and respect from your readers.
The Purpose Behind Your About Me Page
Essentially, it comes down to creating trust between you and your visitors on your blog. You want to make it a bit personal and it should include why you are writing about your chosen niche and why you want to help people find the information they need.
A lot of people tend to overthink this page because they believe it needs to be “perfect” but you have to remember, as your website develops, so will your about me page.
The last thing you want is for your visitors to have no idea who is writing this blog and whether or not to believe anything that is written.
Should I Add An Image?
Absolutely! Adding an image makes the website a much more personable experience for the user. An image of you will make it feel as if they know you and it will feel like you are talking to them when they read your content. Think of it in terms of when you meet someone in person who you have only ever spoken to on the phone – suddenly you have a face to the voice. This is a very powerful tool in building trust.
What Should I Write?
If you have a look at my About Me page. What do you see? It is simple, short and honest. I write a little about why I created this blog and what I aim to achieve.
Is it perfect? I don’t think so but as my blog develops, so will that page and what I write in it.
Try and just keep it simple, as if you are talking to a friend. Tell the truth, keep it reasonably short and stick to the topic at hand.
