Tips For Creating An About Me Page - Share More Than A Bio; Tell Your Story!

About_me_page

Does your blog include an "About Me" page? Each Typepad account comes with one About Me Page which automatically pulls information from the account owner's Profile settings.  Depending on which theme you are using, your About page will display the same theme.  You can access this page by going to Account > About Me Page. 

Rename1
You have the option to use the Default Template or write in your own HTML.  For the "Default" option, there is a "Biography" box you can you fill in with more information about yourself. 

Not Sure What To Say About Yourself?

Sometimes it's hard to talk about ourselves. Instead of listing off your hobbies and interests (not that there's anything wrong with that!), why not take a different approach? Talk about what inspired you to create your blog and when you started your blog. What is your blog about?  What kind of things will visitors find when they visit your blog?  And what kind of value will visitors get from your reading your blog and make them want to come back?

What Else Can You Include In Your "About Me" Page?

  • A photo of yourself
  • Ways to contact you directly
  • Call to action! Add links to your Social Media accounts to encourage new followers
  • Indicate important milestones in your life
  • Interesting facts about your blog

"About Me" Page for Nimble

If you are using the Nimble theme, you will find that you cannot apply your design to the default About Me page. As an alternative to the About Me Page, you can use the Pages feature to create additional pages with similar information. These Pages could include information about specific authors or you could create a different "about" page for each blog in your account.

A new page can be created by opening the Compose button drop-down menu and selecting New Page. Pages are managed at Posts > Pages. Read more  information about creating additional pages in our Knowledge Base.

More Tips On Improving Your "About Me" Page

  • Proofread! Print your About page and read it out loud to yourself. How does it sound? 
  • Have someone else read it your About page, a fresh pair of eyes can bring a new perspective.
