This week’s blogger task (how many bloggers do we still have on board, anyway?)  is to update a key page.  Check out page 40 in the workbook for full details.  (Need a workbook?  Click on the link in the left sidebar and pick one up today!)

I especially like this advice that Darren gives about the Front Page of your blog:

Think about Objectives and Call to Action—one question to ask when looking at your blog’s front page is: what are your objectives? What do you want people to do when they arrive on your blog for the first time (remember, your front page is a logical place for new people to visit)? Do you want people to subscribe to an RSS feed or newsletter, click on an ad, tell a friend, be driven to your best content, buy a product, and hear your story? What do you want them to do? Once you’ve identified your objective you can then position a call to action in a prime location on your blog’s front page.

For me, I did a little cleaning up on the Front Page and updated my About page.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

  1. We had a snow day here in SC. Worn out from playing all morning, so I had a chance to work on 2 new pages in the afternoon.

    I added “About This Blog” which links to some key posts that new readers might miss if they start following now. And I added “About Me.” I think at some point I may add a personal testimony, too.

    I like what your About page says, but I can’t remember how it is different. Did you decide to shorten, ex-pand, or clarify?

  2. It really irks me when folks don’t update their personal picture. Just a pet peeve I guess

  3. I updated it a bit, and clarified some of the “mission statement”. Tried to make it a bit more readable.

  4. wonderful post.Never knew this, thankyou for letting me know.
