FAQ?

 {via}

Hi all, happy Tuesday!

I'm in need of your help.  I've been working on a FAQ page for this little ol' blog and I have some questions rounded up that I think can be helpful for new readers but I'd like a few more to round it out.

So what I'm asking for is what do you think I should include?  If you were a new reader (or are a new reader) what would you ask?  Do YOU have a FAQ page?  What do you have included on it?

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day all!

P.S. I'm guest posting over on the wonderful Selma's blog and I'm talking about blog friendships.  Please go check it out!

Cafe Fashionista

I have a FAQ's page on Cafe Fashionista that I created about a year ago. To be honest, I made it more about me - answering fun questions that readers may be interested in learning about the person behind the blog. :)

I have my 'about me' page where I try to touch on the basics (where I'm from, what I like, etc.)... but I had the same problem as I was developing it; what do I tell people?!

So... I flipped the script and asked myself what I look for when I find a new blog; where is the person from (I like knowing where people live so that I can try to relate through that), are they married, have kids, etc. Those types of things will either keep me interested enough to subscribe to the blog or to let it go.

Sorry I can't be of more help on this - I think just give the basics about you and what your blog is about - people will decide based on your posts if they want to keep reading.

FAQ page... i'll just list off some random questions!! :)

1) What made you start blogging?
2) When did you start blogging?
3) What's your favorite thing about blogging?
4) Tell us a little bit about yourself, where you're from, if you plan on having kids, etc. :)

Hope that helps!!

Sarah

I've never thought about having a FAQ page for my blog....

Kelly

I don't have a FAQ page, but it sounds like a fun idea! Maybe something about how long you've been married, your top tips for the first years of marriage, etc. I mean since you have "I Do" in your blog title.

Kristin

We don't have, but I dig the concept!

Erika

I couldn't think of anything b/c I have been a blog follower of yours for some time now...hmmm but I read your comments & they had good points. kids, married, job, do in spare time, pets, religion, Politics stance, obsessions/must haves, music, fave foods, stores to shop, Strengths & weaknesses, goals in life :)

Vanisha @ Vanisha's Life in...Fiji

You've already got some good suggestions here, maybe "How did you grow your blog?" as I've noticed a lot of people ask you for blogging tips...I can't really think of any more as they've been mentioned :)

Claire

hmmm. what do you hope to be doing this time next year?

Deidre

I have been thinking about making a FAQ page myself I get asked all the time about "why I moved to australia' and "when I moved", "and why Australia and not somewhere else" etc etc

Hmm, let's see. If I'm coming to a new blog, I want to know when someone first started blogging, what made them start blogging, what someone's passions in life are, and basic personal info like name, nickname, relationship status, vague location, etc. And I love when FAQ pages include pics.

Stephanie

I would want to know what is your favorite part about blogging?

Eternally yours,

Where are you from? How long have you been married? I bet those people ask a lot.

Charlotte

Hmmm... I think things like how you met your hubby, what some of your favorite hobbies are, what's your go-to CD of choice on your ipod, and your desert island must-haves would be interesting to read about :) Stopping by to check out your guest post now!
