A great blog tells a story. A good story compels the reader to feel more connected.
You can utilize the "About" page on your blog to tell your personal story.
Check out the WordPress blog, About page, of Mandy Seay, RD, LD:
After reviewing Mandy's About page, the reader is instantly connected to her. She's caring, knowledgeable/credible,
lives in Austin, and is an entrepreneur (a real plus in my book!).
On the Nutritionistics.com About Us page, I learned Mandy served in the Peace Corps:

This week's question for your nutrition blog:
From: Carol T. (e-mail not disclosed for privacy)
Subject: low salt dinner ideas?
I have pre-diabetes and have just been diagnosed with high blood pressure as well. My doctor says to watch my sodium intake. I feel like I've been hit with a double whammy! In addition to trying to lose weight
and watch my carb intake, I now have to watch my salt as well. Could you give me some low salt ideas for dinner meals?
After you answer a question on your blog please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the link (so we know that you posted). The deadline
is every Sunday at midnight. We will post several responses in our next newsletter!Example: Christine's Blog
