If your blog is going to be focused on a specific topic then the blog URL, the blog title should reflect that; if you are a sporadic blogger like myself then the name should indicate that.
I’ve created some headers at the top of my blog to segregate my blog posts since I don’t really have a theme to my blog other than the fact that it is very sporadic. So I’ve got sections such as ‘Music’, ‘Poetry’, ‘Reflections’, ‘Relationships’, ‘Wordless Wednesday’, ‘Sexy Saturday’ (a meme I created for fun) and ‘Diva’s Guests’ which features all my guest bloggers. I think it makes it easy for a reader to select what kind of posts they may want to read and to see if the topics appeal to them.
Also be prepared to be ‘accountable’ for your blog. If you’re gonna have an opinion about a subject be ready for people to counter your opinion and make sure you have facts to back it up. That’s where ‘attribution’ comes – don’t forget to link back to sites where you get your sources from (whether it be statistics or even images).
There’s a cool site that I would like to share with you all called ‘about.me’ and it basically lets you put all your social media profiles onto one website and are even doing a promotional offer of giving out business cards with your details on it. Definitely worth checking out especially if you can tweak the html code to direct your ‘about’ link to this site.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaay that’s my first post done for the A to Z Challenge ! Feel free to share a link to your ‘about’ page in the comments so that others in bloggersville can visit you.
