What I do when I discover a new blog, I read the first few post and then I check on the about me page because I always have the urge to know who is behind the blog and I just want to know more about the person and maybe in some way connect with them.Before we get down on how you should write an epic about me page, some of the questions that your audience should be able to answer when they visit your page are.
1. Who are you?
2. What made you start your blog?
3. How will your blog be of value to them?
4. Are you relatable to them?
5. How can they get in touch with you?
About page is one of the most important and relevant pages in your blog so it should be properly written.
It is also the most viewed page after home page.
Make sure yours is an epic one, a good about page will make your audience fall in
love with you and companies will also get drawn to you.
Since it will be one of the most visited pages on your blog it should be appealing.

they think about themselves while they should be thinking about their readers.
