Tips and Examples For Writing Interesting Author Bio For Blogs

Posted in Web Design4 years ago • Written by 16 Comments

Author bio is short introduction about the author who have written the post. Good author bio is always useful in many ways like if you are regularly guest blogging it may divert good number of traffic to your blog which will earn you regular readers for your blog  or will get you loyal twitter followers.

There are so no such guidelines you need to follow while writing author bio, but it is useful if you follow some basic steps to get more out of your author bio information.

1.Introduce Yourself

The author bio should start with introduction of yourself, it may contain something personal about you or things that you are passionate about like your hobbies, interest, or simply the place you live. Alternatively you can describe your work or your new projects you are working on.

2.Keep It Short & Meaning Full

Bio should be always short, somewhere between 60-80 words will more then enough to give information about your self & It should not contain unnecessary stuffs that will disinterest your  readers.

3.Don’t Stuff It With Too Many URL’s

Just stuffing URL’s into author bio will make you look like an link spammer. You should not used more then 4 URL’s that may include a link to your website,blog, Twitter & Facebook page. Try to spread this spread this URL’s properly into your bio section rather then just listing URL’s one after the other.

4.Include Your Contact Information

Many people forget to include their contact details in the author bio section, which is not advisable as people would like to get in touch with you. The contact information should appear at the end of the bio section, you can use your Twitter, Facebook or email address as your contact info.

    Adding humour to your bio can show that you are more friendly and fun to communicate with. It needs to be added in the right way. It should impact the message that you want to get across to your audience. It has to grab their attention and make them remember you.
