How Awesome Is Your ‘About’ Page?

I’ve been discouraged from subscribing to a blog/website simply because of an ‘about page’ in the past. Why? I couldn’t connect with the blog/blogger. Does that mean the blog isn’t interesting or the blogger doesn’t have something good to offer? Perhaps not. What didn’t come across as interesting was the way the ‘about page’ was put together. Believe it or not, what your about page says about you or what your blog has to offer, is important. What you are about and the message of your blog should be made clear in the simplest language possible. People may stumble across a post or an article you wrote and decide to check out your home base.

The Songstone Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway!

Hello friends! Presenting to you the very talented Lena Goldfinch! Also is a book review of her latest book, Songstone, and a prize giveaway. Join us in our conversation below. 1. Hey Lena! Glad to have you with us today. So tell, what made you fall in love with fantasy and choose it as your genre? And how did the idea to merge it with Christian themes come to you? I think fantasy chose me. 😉 Seriously, I love reading fantasy, especially the Scottish time-travel romances by Lynn Kurland, among others, but I didn’t set out originally to write fantasy. I just grew and changed as a writer over the years and fantasy themes just started calling my name. I started out writing inspirational/Christian historical romance (none of those efforts have been published however), where weaving in faith-based plot threads was a conscious choice.
