Your blog should include a menu at the top with tabs that make it easy for readers to navigate your site. What you include will vary based on what type of content you have. However, most blogs have an “About” page, contact information, and categories for various types of popular content.
The “About” page explains to readers who you are, what your background is, and why you are blogging. You want to make this page personal, but also make sure that you are staying safe by not revealing too much information. You do not want to reveal your full name, your age, your school, or your geographic location. You might choose to use only your first name, or even a pen name. Instead of talking about yourself, try focusing on why you are blogging. For example, if you start a cooking blog, you can write about when you first began cooking, what your favorite recipes are, and what you hope to accomplish with your blog.
The “Contact” page is mostly used by bloggers hoping to receive products for review. This is completely optional. If you are inspired to try to be the next great influencer, however, you should create an email that is specifically for your blog. Do not use your personal email, your school email, or an email with your name on it.
The categories you place on your menu will vary depending on what type of blog you have. Baking blogs, for instance, often have tabs that correspond to different recipes people might be seeking: “Cakes,” “Cookies,” “Pies,” etc. You may find that you need to add more tabs as your content grows and you begin to focus more on specific topics.
