Blogging 101 – Write an About Me Page – Exploring me and who Am I

Today’s assignment for our Blogging 101 course was to write an About Page.  Who is Mark, what is he all about, and most importantly, why the heck is he writing?  Like most of us, we have a reason that motivates us to put fingers to keyboard and through our heart to our words.

What makes for a killer about me page?

Looking to write an About Me page? Consider including some of the following on your new About Me page.

  • Your Sites Bio – what is your Blog about? Why should your visitors stop and read?
  • Who are you – why are you writing? What credibility do you have?
  • Where are you located – great for fans to know where you are. This may also helo with PR contacts.
  • Talk to your readers and tell a story –  keep your tone conversational and write in the first person. Tell them a story.

Who is Mark?

Over time, this may evolve, but so does life.  What is important today, may seem irrelevant five years from now — a birth, a death, illness, all influence us in many ways and through that our words.

Feel free to explore my About Me Page and let me know what you think.  Was I personal enough, did I hold back?  What questions did you have that I could answer?
