Day Six: Make an Irresistible “About” Page
And then we are told that ” an about page is the single most important page you will have on your blog ” but that just scares the hell out of me.
The most important one ??? The one that “ helps rushed indecisive readers decide to stick around ” makes me just want to retrieve into my Turtle carapace , because I’m not sure I can pull that one off.
But why is this such a difficult job to tackle ? Is it because we don’t like to talk about ourselves ( it makes no sense as in our blogs we are almost always talking about ourselves, our views or our experiences ) ? Is it because we are not sure of how much of ourselves are we willing to expose on your first contact with us ?
Or is it because we are just starting out and although we have this desire to get out there and just blog , we still don’t know very well what we will be writing about or in which direction our blog will veer itself into ?
In my case it is all of the above mixed , stirred and shaken together plus this ” fear ” of not doing it right , or of giving the wrong impression (that is the shy , introverted socially inept Turtle ).
And I wonder :
” If I told you my flaws …would you still love me the same ” ?
Just because I like this song and wanted to share it with you. As I usually do I just went around for days singing what I thought I was listening to , and not really paying much attention to the full lyrics . Surprise , surprise it was not what I had imagined , but still a very nice song , and flaws and love 🙂
