Blogging question: How many people want to know about you?

Posted By on December 11, 2016

A friend is thinking about writing a “subject oriented blog” (unlike MyDesultoryBlog) and asked me if I thought it was important to have an aboutthumbnail“about the author page.” I said yes, people will want to know if you are knowledgeable on the subject matter or if you at least have the researching and objective ability worthy of reading.

His follow up to me was “How many people look at your “About” page?”  I really never gave it much thought and started to dig into the statistics.  Come to find out, the ABOUT link  was the 14th most common click in the last 30 days and in the past year it was the 12th most common link clicked … although falling well behind the the most viewed  link this year. Who knew almost 10,000 views about a Honda Odyssey sliding door problem (I should have given that short post more thought!)


Desultory - des-uhl-tawr-ee, -tohr-ee

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
