Rewriting the about me page

I find the about me page to be one of the most important for any blog. If I read a post that I like from someone, I always wonder to their “about me” page. I am always disappointed when I don’t find something there.

Mine has gone through several iterations, and I have just done a little rewriting there. However, I still feel that its not cool enough. So, help me out people, what else do you want to know about me? or maybe you know about me that should be put there… help!

  1. I intend this in a constructive light: you’ve been Overcapitalizing Nouns just about Everywhere in your existing about me page. Capitalizing when it isn’t grammatically necessary can be great for emphasis, but only when used sparingly. It’s a more subtle version of caps-lock.

    As for content, I’d like to see a running tally of times you’ve hit somebody harder than you meant to while practicing Taekwando (which I’m hesitant to capitalize given my previous point). That kind of thing is hilarious, IMHO. If I were still practicing Kenpo I’d have a running tally of times I’d hit somebody in the crotch.

  2. Are you trying to tell me to update mine?

    I’m a pretty simple man who enjoys the occasional Subway sandwich.

  3. Shoe size, please.

  4. I have to admit that I almost included Chimpo on my post, but did not want to call him out! But I think he just stepped out on his own.

    Melinda, 10 1/2 – 11 depending on the shoes… but they are wide! So if you are buy me some, just get me the widest ones.

  5. Subtle, Logtar. Very subtle.

  6. i’m just glad you say “sammich”. i hope you drink pop… and you better not be putting ketchup on your hotdogs!

  7. How about a running caffeine total.

  8. Hrmm… I find that I tend not to worry about such things all that often. I don’t know why, but I don’t ever think to read the About Me page. Normally the teaser and the little picture on most blogs do enough for me.

    BTW, what is up with this Web2.0 ideal of putting your picture on every page?? Seriously, I got into blogging because my face should remain hidden!!!

    And oh yes, you have been tagged:

  9. How about admitting that you are a flaming homo?
