Having a Contact us page will let your visitors relax a bit, as myself whenever I visit any website first I check whether the site has a contact page. Having a contact page will make your visitor feel that there is someone to listen to their queries. A blog without a proper contact page is just of no use… Also blog with a non-functioning contact page is also useless. Try to reply to your blog queries as soon as possible, people like to engage themselves on blogs which are always active.
To help your visitor know about you or your business you must include an About page in your website. Your visitors will surely be happy knowing some details about you and also to know that this blog is actually run by a real human and not robots.
