All About Me, About Me, About Us…These are just some of the page title names for when writing an ‘About Me Page’ on your blog.
Chance are if you are a blogger or a website owner, then you have an ‘About Me Page’ and if you are just starting out or not sure, let me be the first to share that you should indeed have an ‘About Me Page’.
But why should your blog have an ‘About Me Page’?
Because this page is so very essential to a blog and what helps those potential new readers hang around and essentially become new and hopefully faithful followers, which is just another way to increase your blog views.
And what should an ‘About Me Page‘ include, especially a killer one that gets noticed and is functional, too?
I myself, when I first started blogging wasn’t truly sure myself, but very quickly I found my voice as a blogger and came up with a cute concept that mixed the sheer fact that I did once upon a time ago work in corporate, but also matched my sarcastic humor, too.

But again this was just my take and ideally your page should weave personality throughout and will get back to this momentarily.
So, what essentially should a Killer ‘About Me Page’ for most blogs include?
Here are some ‘About Me Page’ tips…
1. Your Voice on Your ‘About Me Page’ –
Yes, as I previously mentioned your ‘About Me Page’ should include your own voice. In this blogging day and age, you, as a writer and blogger, should always try your best to use your own voice when posting new articles and it is even more important when doing an ‘About Me Page’, because this is where your readers may very well go to when they first find your blog to get a better sense of who you are and what you blog about. So, making sure to speak as though they were conversing with you is of utmost important and gains the reader a better idea of who you are. This page should sum up what your new or perspective reader will gain for sticking around and hopefully becoming your newest and latest follower.
2. Include Interlinking On Your ‘About Me Page’ –
In this end, you want to make sure that once readers land on this ‘About Me Page’ they can be led to other articles by you that showcase you as a writer and again show them why they are here and why they should stick around for more of you and your blog. Use interlinking so they can have further opportunities to explore your little piece of the internet.
3. Tell a Story/Paint a Picture Using Images On Your ‘About Me Page‘ –
Now that you have used your own voice and thought about what you would like to interlink back to on your ‘About Me Page’, make sure that you try to share about yourself in a bit of a story form with as much creativity and imagery as possible with images that are current, but also reflective of your blog with what you may want your readers to know about you and what it is about you and your blog that makes you/your blog special or unique.
Since, I shared the above 3 tips for setting the stage for a killer ‘About Me Page’ on your blog, the next step is to get cracking on your own ‘About Me Page’ to include on your own blog menu bar.
