While chatting away to Manda at breakthesky.net this week, she mentioned she was going to revamp her About page as it was pretty ‘bare bones’ on details. If hers is bare bones, mine is about as detailed as a failed exam, so it got me thinking about the interesting (or lack there of) state of my own about page and what I could do to improve it.
Manda doesn’t have a book blog, she is one of those talented individuals who can write about their life without sounding like a whiny butt hole. Her about page will be to be different from a book bloggers as she has a different target audience, but that leaves me wondering, what do readers want to know about book bloggers? – is it really that different.
So far my About page looks like this:
I also have a little quirky blurb to the side, sans author picture, but it doesn’t really say anything about me.
I need your help. I know what I enjoy reading; name, location, favourite books and how they came to blog. However, sometimes I will hit an about page and be struck by its difference from the ‘norm’. So I ask you the following questions:
- What do you like in your book blogger bios?
- What do you add to your own?
- What would you all like to know about me and my reading habits?
- Should I add a picture to the side bar?
- What do you consider interesting information? and
- What do you consider to be navel gazing?
What do you want to know about me, Alice, the book blogger?
