Blogging 101, Day Twenty: Add a New Page

blogging101

Sometimes you might want to share some information with your readers that you want them to be able to find quickly and easily. For these moments the best option is to create a “Page”, which is why Michelle W. assigns us today to add a new page to your blog, and make sure readers can find it easily.

In a previous assignment we created an “About” page for our readers to learn a little bit more about us. This is the perfect kind of thing to have a separate page for, so that readers can quickly check out this info without having to do an extensive search on our blogs. Other common “Page” ideas? How about a “Links” page to share important websites? Or a “Contact” page to share your alternate online presences and info on how to best reach out to you?

But it’s not just all about the common options. Pages should be tailored to the information that you think is important for your particular blog and your readers. For instance, I have a page set up for information on my projects. As a writer – with followers who are both fellow writers and readers – I thought it would be nice to have an easy and noticable spot on my blog where visitors can check out what I’m working on. Someday when I’m published I’ll create an alternative page with information on my books and where to purchase them. Once I’ve gotten a few more unboxing videos made and uploaded to YouTube I’ll probably create a page that consolodates all the information on those.

It all comes down to figuring out which information is important, and then creating an easily noticable page to reflect that information. Ready? Set? Go!
