I’m calling this a “gift guide” but here’s what happened: My husband asked me to make a list of things I wanted for Christmas, and I needed a blog post for today because the one I’d originally planned didn’t work out. So…today I’m sharing with you things from my holiday wish list that I think other women writers, lady bloggers and girl bosses would also enjoy.
Years ago I read an article that advised bloggers to treat their website as if it were a business they were hoping to one day sell, even if they had no such aspirations. Similarly, I believe that anyone looking to turn her blog into a business should be able to answer the same kinds of questions that an investor would ask any aspiring entrepreneur.
A Frequently Asked Questions, or FAQ, page is something many bloggers overlook when putting together their sites — yours truly included. So I’m putting together an FAQ page for this site and I’d love your help.
An FAQ page is a great way to quickly orient new readers to your blog and to help them find the information they’re most likely seeking on your site. An FAQ page can also save you time as it will keep you from answering the same questions over and over via email.
If you’re not sure which questions you should include on your page start by just sitting down and thinking of the questions you’re, well, frequently asked! You could also host a Q&A on your blog, in your Facebook group, on Periscope, or in a webinar.
As I put together the See Jane Write FAQ page, I want your input. Leave your questions about See Jane Write, blogging, and writing in the comments.
Feel free to also leave a link to your FAQ page. I’d love to see it!
