Mistakes To Avoid On Your 'About' Page

Last Update: December 29, 2013

It can be a puzzle to know exactly how to pitch your 'About' or 'About Me' page.

When writing you may want to consider the three following questions.

Who am I?
What can I do for you, the visitor?
How can I be contacted?

Be aware that when you're writing about who you are - readers don't want your life history. The focus should be on the reader.

Shown below are mistakes that you should avoid making with your 'About' page.

You do know I have your info-graphics printed out and pinned to my wall :) (I just read that back, and it sounds a bit creepy! Honestly it's meant not meant to be - it's mean to be a compliment!)

As always Beverley, sound advice - I need to re-read, implement and amend my pages.

Thank you,

Mark

Hi John. It came and it went. Hope you had a good time.

LoL - I need to look at my about page as well! (One site - I don't even have one - so I had better get writing)

Thanks for pointing those things out, I will probably go to my about pages and change some wording and stuff.
