30 Days to a Better Blog: Add/Edit Your Contact Me Page

Take a look at your blog’s static pages. Do you have a Contact Me or Contact Us page? If no, why not? How is anybody ever going to contact you to start a dialogue, ask about advertising, or provide great content? If yes, how long has it been since you edited it? Is any of your information outdated and do you have links to your social networking sites?

The contact page is one of the most important pages on your site. It doesn’t matter whether your blog is for business or personal – it exists to connect with visitors and reader and you have to facilitate that connection outside of your comments and social networking widgets. Visitors know to look for a Contact page, so make it visible and consider adding a link on your footer!

What should you include on your contact page? Any or all of the following:

  • Name of the blog/company

  • Name of the blogger(s)
  • Email addresses (you can set up several emails – including editorial, newsletter, advertising, etc – to manage different departments)
  • Social networking handles
  • Physical address
  • Phone number
  • Fax number

You may consider setting up a Contact Form that generates an automatic email to your inbox. By providing a drop-down box with “Reasons for Contact” you can easily sift through emails and distribute them appropriately.

Let us know what you edited on your Contact Me page.
