How I Wrote My About Page

I’ve just finished doing up the About page for Thing is, I really dread writing about myself. About pages have never been fun to write for me, and I can’t figure out whether it’s because I just don’t feel comfortable writing about myself, or because I don’t know myself well enough.

Anyway, I tried keeping things simple this time. It’s really amusing when you come across blogs that have About pages that look like dating site profiles, not that I know how one looks like, you get what I mean. I really didn’t want to give off the dating site profile vibe on the About page, and hope I managed to accomplish it this time.

I’d imagine that good and interesting about pages should have at least most of these things:

  1. Brief introduction of oneself
  2. A photo at least
  3. Some trivia that would make the page seem more personal (e.g. family info, background)
  4. Aim of the blog
  5. Contact

What do you think?
