Why you need an FAQ page for your blog

Do you have an FAQ page for your blog? Please say ‘Yes’. And in this post, I am going to tell you why this is crucial! This blog has traveled a long way from the time that it began. From sporadic posts every few months to regular posts now, I look forward to the changes that are coming into effect from the new year. 

Over the last 6 months, I have been receiving requests from various people. Some of them wanted to write guest posts on my blog. Others wanted to advertise their products. Many more wanted me to write product/ book reviews. I realised that it would be far simpler to direct them to a static page, instead of replying to individual requests by e-mail.

After a lot of delay, I finally got down to drafting my FAQ page.

Are you a blogger? Here is why you need an FAQ page for your blog. Whether you're blogging for pleasure or for business, an FAQ page is a must. Find out why. #BloggingTips


Effectively, your FAQ page will hinge on two things:

  1. What you hope to gain from the blog
  2. How you hope others will benefit from your content

Keep in mind that I am a blogger who does this for fun and relaxation mostly. But I have started writing sponsored content,  brand collaborations and am thinking of running ads on the blog soon. Your terms and conditions would be vastly different if you run a website for a business.


What my FAQ page contains:

  • Guest posting by other bloggers on my site
  • Request for guest posts by me on other sites
  • Product reviews to be featured on my site
  • Smartphone Application reviews
  • Inclusion of Promotional/ Commercial/ Sponsored posts on my site
  • Purchase of Advertising space on my site

Key points to remember:

  • Always be ready to tweak the FAQ every month or so, depending on the changing dynamics of your blog.
  • Include links to existing features (reviews/ guest posts) in the FAQ. Make sure you retain the same label for future posts, so all the data can be viewed at a single glance.
  • Make sure you insert a contact e-mail address for people to reach out to you quickly. Ensure that this is also available as a stand-alone ‘Contact Me‘ page.

I understand that the FAQ page makes sense if you are keen to monetize the blog, but trust me, even if you are blogging for leisure, make sure you have one handy on the website, right alongside your About Me page.

So, after you’ve read through this, I have only one question: If you don’t have an FAQ page yet, why don’t you? 

*I will be doing a follow-up post on why you need a media kit and what it should contain, so stay tuned!

  1. Admiring the time and energy you put into your website and
    in depth information you present. It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out
    of date rehashed material. Excellent read! I've bookmarked
    your site and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. I have Work with me and Guest Post pages along with About abs Contact pages on my blog so I guess that pretty much takes care of the questions. Since all my blogs are monetized, I do believe that it is important to address each one of these questions.
