Update the About page, assuming you’ve changed.
I have a question for you.
How many of you pay attention to the About pages on your blog/site/webpage?
For me…well, let’s just say I’m absolutely horrible at telling others about myself in print in more than two lines. Absolutely horrible. I mean, if you looked at my “About Ashley” page now, and if you looked at it like, a few months ago, the difference would be apparent. I think I’ve gotten better at introducing myself, but I still ramble way too much.
As a blogger/web designer, a crucial piece of advice I can give you is to keep the aforementioned page updated as you go through life. An About page exists for a reason: to tell the world what you are right now. People (or at least I) go through that page expecting to find up-to-date information. I’ve been through blogs where the About page has spelling errors akin to those a ten-year old would make, but the recent writing and posts are actually much, much better than the page.
On one hand, your writing is of superb quality. On the other, your About page looks like it was written during the more immature periods of your life. You can imagine the kind of impression people/world would get from that.
Do yourself a favor, save yourself the embarrassment, and go through your About page changing whatever you feel needs changing or updating. Don’t forget to change that “I’m 16” to “I’m 19”. It makes a difference, believe me.
Written on an extremely long, torturous, boring, plane journey with no WiFi. Forgive the almost broken chain of thought. Also, this is my shortest post on this blog.
