31 Days of Helping Other Bloggers: Static Pages

Static pages are not new to Blogger, but until earlier this year I had not utilized them at all. Are you using static pages on your site? Let's create a professional static page today.

What is a static page? 

A Nest Full of Squishers about static page

Static pages allow you to create specific pages like About Me, Contact page, Copyright Policy, etc.as stand alone pages that are linked with your site.

Today we will select "Pages" from your blogger dashboard.

Selecting "Pages" will take you to your menu for your pages.

Clicking on "Blank page" will bring you to a composing page similar to a regular post. The biggest difference in appearance is the options on the far right.

For an About Me page you may not want reader comments. This option is easily removed by ticking the don't allow comments setting. 

When you are finished with your page don't forget to save your work. Back in your pages menu you can view your About Me page to easily find the URL. You can now make your profile image a clickable link taking readers to your About Me page like I have done in my header. Go ahead, give my photo a click. :)

I'm linking up with the Nester for her 31 Days series.
