I recently got some feedback on my website and I wanted to get some additional opinions on writing in first person vs third person. The following quotation is what the person wrote:
"But to me is it far to personal and should be handled more as a third party. For sample Instead to write "Since I work full time outside of the home" I would write. "when parents work full time..." its ok if you are personal but i am not sure if to many "I's" scare clients then offen i think people goes faster to amazon than to read allways a personal biography. People wants to have problems solved. [...]you will have to decide if its a personal page or if you want to make pasiv income..."
Should I be writing in less conversational style, in third person? I feel my niche (which includes both parenting and prepping subjects) lends itself to a more personal style. They are pretty personal subjects that include a lot of philosophical and personal decisions. Here is my website for reference: http://survivalwithkids.com/ Thank you in advance for another opinion as I've been stewing about this comment all day.
