There are many things that you might choose to incorporate when building your freelance blog, some of which are necessary. Some of which are not. In the end, it is completely up to you what to put on yours. This list is not comprehensive, but it gives you an idea of what information is often available on a blog.
- A professional looking photograph of you.
- Your information. Besides the bio that you will place in the blog column, you should also have an about me page. It is not necessary to give out personal information other than your email and name if you do not wish to, but a description of what you do will be needed. Due to geo-tracking, you may wish to at least put your state and country in each page. Your city is another option. In many instances, people like to search out professionals near them.
- Links to your other related sites and blogs.
- Pages list for your blog.
- Category list for your blog.
- Email signup or blog subscription signup button.
- Content is king. Provide good content and people will want to return to your blog. Make at least one post a week, but two or three posts would be better. I always suggest 14 posts to start, one for each day over a two week period.
Can you think of any other necessities for a freelance blog? What is important to you?
