I have noticed that there are a lot of bloggers on WordPress who did not set up an About page for their blog.
Although the idea of setting up an About page may appear to be quite intimidating to some, it is an important aspect of one’s blog.
One’s readers and first time visitors can get an idea as to what your blog is based on; hence the importance of an About page.
Your About page is about, “You.” The whole idea of creating it, is so that people can have a better idea as to who you are and what your blog is about.
The information that you choose to put on your About page is entirely up to you; after all, it is your About page. You can go into full detail about yourself, or you can keep it short and simple.
I am of the opinion that an About page shouldn’t be taken for granted, because it has the potential to create a close connection between the reader and the owner of the blog.
