Blogging 101: Contact Page Ingredients

A well-crafted contact page can mean the difference between landing an amazing sponsorship/collaboration or simply falling through the cracks. Sponsors and even other bloggers spend a lot of time looking through blogs to find the next person that is perfect for a project - if they can't find your contact page for a quick email, then who is to say they take the time to poke at you through social media or not?

Why not create the perfect contact page and make it easy for everyone? Here is what we think you should include:

  • Your email and/or an email response form
  • Who should contact 
  • Why they should contact you
  • Any explanations related to contacting you 
  • Other methods of contacting you 

Keep things as succinct and simple as possible, while still maintaining the voice of your blog. Now, sit back and enjoy making new connections.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
