One of the great things about being a blogger is being able to share personal experiences and more about you with your readers. Although there is a fine line between being personable and sharing too much (you can read my post all about maintaining privacy as a blogger here). But it’s still important to let your readers know more about you. This way they can connect more with the person behind the screen, and many of them probably share some common experiences/feelings that you do. So to help here are 15 personal blog post ideas to help your readers get to know you better!
