Idle Profit writes a post with 5 Reasons you need to have a contact page – I think all 5 reasons are valid.
Plus it’s just bad manners not to and can create a spammy/cheap and nasty impression when you don’t.
Plus it’s just good business sense to give customers, potential partners and those that can help promote you a way to get in touch.
I don’t mind if it’s a purpose built contact page, a link in your sidebar or some other form of contact – but I really can’t think of a reason why a blogger wouldn’t have one – even a popular blogger who gets hit with thousands of emails a day or an anonymous blogger (who can have a contact method that retains their anonymity) should or they could be limiting their potential to grow their blog.
Can you tell this is a pet peeve of mine?
