    I updated my about page recently and added a bit of extra information about myself and my family. I think it’s a lot better now.

    The about pages I sometimes check out don’t have much info on and makes it sound as if they have not spent enough time on this matter.

    An about page is essential. It make networking possible!

    Contacting the owner about a possible deal, tip or suggestion is impossible without a decent about page.

    Excellent post Harsh!

    Harsh your article is really admirable.I have visited many blogs but lot of bloggers hide their identity.I don’t why they hesitate to show their personality.I think blog is the duplicate copy of the person who is behind the blog.
    What do you think?

      Hi Surender
      I dont agree to u ..sometimes it becomes mandatory for u to hide ur identity..suppose u are wrking in a gud cmpny and if ur cmpny knows that u have been in a side-business apart from ur daily job..so what they will do??
      To avoid these, U have to hide urself till u are with them.
      I have seen many bloggers blogging with the same hidden appearance

        I have to disagree with you here Atul. Personally I think trust is the single most important thing when it comes to making money with our climate. If you don’t tell them about you, why should anyone trust you and what you are telling them?

        I do agree to you Stefan.. I do agree trust is primary key to success.. But pls do consider the scenario which I have pointed out.. In this case, I think you can’t fully disclose urself..

        Sure Atul, but are there truly companies who care about what you do on your spare time? I am sure they do not want you to get drunk and upload the photos but a side job? Should they not encourage your to learn while working?

    This is something I need to do for my blog. Earlier today I decided to drive over to my grandmothers house and eat dinner there and we ended up discussing old memories. She reminded me of several of my first attempt to make money as a child. Thinking back on it, I’ve always tried to make money through different methods and I think this is the thing that still drives me today.

    To summarize on the about page. Try to write your personal story, how you ended up doing what you do and why.

    I love to read about me page. Most of the time i read if, i find any page like this.

    About me page is inspirational to other peoples. Once i read blogger who bought a domain name and hosting by working online. And then how he grows from smaller to bigger. This is thing motivates others. And give sharp look on persons personality.

    Also, agree with atul too. because the company i got placed has mentioned..in agreement that you should not do side business. If they consider blogging as business. You will loose your job. if you are blogging once in a week then ok. Company want employees full dedication.

    About Me is very important especially for 1st time visitors. I do have a little about me page, but not really in details. Maybe I’ll need to update it again.

    I am doing job in a telecom company and i never mind writing about me page on my blog. If anyone blog without any intention of making money then it doesn’t matter at all. I don’t think any company mind its employ for being a blogger until blogging doesn’t ruin their business. Its immense pressure on Bloggers to find a time for blogging apart from day time job. So it is good that anyone can have both; blog and a job. It define the credibility and ability to deal in immense work pressure.

    I was not having an About Page when I started my blog because I did not want to show off my name and photo. But later as part of the customary practice I added an about page and it showed the result. The reason (as I had mentioned in a Problogger article) why it turned out better for me could be because I had written a story which my dad had told as well. It conveyed the theme of the Blog well. Readers love stories rite..
