[stextbox id=”info”]Lets first see Why you need a good About us page:

A good About us page will definitely bring more visitors and create the trust for your readers. A blog is not only about writing, people want to know how you started the blog.
Give you readers some history about the blog; How the journey started. What problem you faced and how you overcome that?
This will not only motivates blogger but make new blogger as your followers. They can relate themselves to you.

Picture is a must –
People tie your blog with a name and picture. Make sure you have the best picture in about us page first thing at the top. Whenever people see your blog URL, they should remember your picture.
Keep your picture portrait and the best one. Please see the example below from Ankit’s blog.
Provide a brief Intro –
Start with a brief intro; how you started the blog, where you live, how you get into Blogging and so on. Share few things about you. Share something about your family. Remember people who clicked on About us page, they want to know a little bit about you.

Tell people how this blog can help them. What topics you write about. What readers can expect from the blog? Look at below example from Mouthshut.
Your Achievements –

This is the very important part of the About us. Make sure you include every possible social media. Your readers should get more options to follow you. You can also include contact like email, Skype, WhatsApp etc. You can also ask them to leave a voice message.
