8 Best About Us Pages Online

Hello guys long time no see :). Today i wanted to share my top about us pages list online, most of them are blogs while few are websites. Every about us page that i would share here is the one that inspired me to a great extent and motivated me to get to a point of success, that they are enjoying today.

Hopefully this list would also motivate you in building a blog that could be a journey from a normal guy to a celebrity.

Whats The Perfect About Us Page?

Well, there is no set definition of a 'perfect' about us page. This is the practical world we live in, right? The whole point of building an about us page is to convey your point of view, and giving out a snippet of your personality to your readers.

Considering the readers as your friends, it gets easy to convey the following points:

    Who are you?
    What do you do online?
    How you started?
    What was the motivation behind your online career?
    What would they get from the blog?

and what not..

1-There are dozens of possibilities that you would like to share with your first time friend. There are few similarities between the following about us pages that i am about to list. First of all, you would notice that they all have a unique style that marks their own personality, (you don't need to be them).

You are what you are, and you are the best! Take that ideology and set your own path.

2-All of these about us pages have an eye catching design. The text layout is clean that makes you read more and more. They share their personnel stories, failures and success and anything that they have learned through them.

3-It would be a nice touch to your about us page, if you would add a short video to it. Picture is must. Many bloggers use audio streaming to their about us pages to deliver a short voice message too. The idea is to give out a personnel touch so that the reader feels like being associated.

So lets start with our top about us page list online. The list below is in no particular order. All of these about us pages are great and equally inspiring.

1-Problogger

Daren's Blog, was one of the first blog that i read online. Problogger is almost every where for all those blogging keyword searches on Google. Thus many beginners tend to find him first. As always, About page is the first page that i tend to go for after reading a particular post i land on.

Some times, as in the case of Problogger, the about us page won my heart, and in fact i became a regular reader there. Thats the power of a great About us page. It can build or break the impression. Notice how he starts off with a short introduction of the blog (in the very first line, to tell the readers the general background of the blog its self).

Then by mentioning his entire blogging history (from hobby to profession), he makes out a solid ground to tell who he is and why. Finally a short question 'Why Problogger?' wins your heart and confirms you as his loyal reader.

Once you feel like associated with him, he tends to go on with subscription offer and advertises his eBook. A great way to catch up your mind. I was really impressed for the first time.

Great job there Daren!

2-Copyblogger

Brain Clark has a unique type of About us page. Instead of talking about who he is, he goes on to take you in confidence as a reader. He tells the readers what they want and proceeds with the solutions.

The first sentence says it all:

Want more traffic, links, subscribers, and a profit-generating website? Copyblogger gives you the solutions you need to succeed.

Moving on, he provides with 3 tips that would give a general writing style of his blog, and then finally mentions whose behind the big boat. His about us page is quite inspirational, when one reads out his testimonials.

Obviously, when you start up, you wont be having anything to show up. So simply maintain a decent about us page, that is an interactive one, and that builds out a relationship with the readers. Later when you face success, don't take time to mention that on the About Us page.

3-Lisa Arby Blog

Lisa is one of my true inspirations online and i believe i wouldn't have started off blogging without her website. It was not until when i searched on Google, "how to create a website" and she poped up!.

That day was bless i believe. Lisa Arby blog About Page is one of my favorite. The way she writes, and the connection that a reader feels him self into after reading out the page is fabulous. It feels like there is no one more truth full and clear than her.

Love how she rolled every thing about her self in her About Us page.

4- 84 Colors

The design is the main catch on Cristiana Bardeanu's site. She speaks about her self in short, to the point. It feels like she's talking to the reader and them about her life.

5-Desandro

 Davids site is again known for his design. Not much a description about him self but the design (with huge picture) gives a unique look. Though it doesn't fulfills the short criteria we discussed in the starting of the post, but it delivers one of the design accept pretty well.

6-Mybloggertricks

 Muhammad's blog is a great resource for blogging tips and blogger tutorials. He recently updated his About Us page that couldn't be missed here in the list. He delivers his about us page in a third person where he set out three different sections of the entire story.

Starting of with his blogging history, then what the blog has to offer and finally his advice to the visitors. Loved his unique style.

7-Blogtyrant

 Another great example of an About us page for sure. Apart from the normal text that talks about the author, he adds up an extra spice by adding that audio stream. He sums up every thing that a reader should be knowing about him in a min long talk.

Adding a video would have been even better. Loved it!.

8-SEOmoz

 SEOmoz is known for its search engine optimization tools and tips that they provide to their customers. The company officially started of in 2004 and has a website that is ranked among the worlds top 500 websites.

 Their About Us page is great and provides a new idea that we haven't seen before on other discussed examples. After telling out about the company, their products and the community of geeks that they have developed over the years, they give out a short timeline of how exactly the company was built.

Starting off from 1981, it goes to 2010 (to date).

 Hope the top about us list would help you out making a great one for your self too. The whole idea of the About us page is to get 'your' self, your real image to the readers who wish to know you. Adding an image, audio or video means a lot.

Put down your history, your success, what you share and anything that you feel would help you make a better relation with your visitors. Leave out your thoughts below in the comment section.

I would love to know your favorite About Us page from this list and Why?. And Do list out any other great About Us page that you know, i would love to add that one to the list. :)

Cheers!
