The first thing that I do when I come across a new blog, is look for their ‘about me’ page.
I figure that if you can make the basics about yourself sound interesting enough to keep my attention, I will basically read anything that you write. If, on the flipside, you refer to your children as your LO’s and your husband as your DH, I’m sorry, but I just can’t.
…yea, I realize, now, that I sound like a giant brat.
I, ironically, do not have an ‘about me’ page – not for a lack of trying though, trust me – I just haven’t been able to sum myself up in a way that I think I should officially publish as ‘about me.’
When I try for writing jobs online, the cornerstone for those applications is a bio and it is, hands down, one of my least favorite things to type up. I just feel like I sound like a droning idiot, saying all the things that you’re supposed to say: wife, stay-at-home mom, likes cats (I don’t actually like cats), eats a lot of queso (I do actually eat a lot of queso), etc.
It’s like, sometimes I just want to be like – kills houseplants, still shops in the juniors section, mumbles the f-word a bunch, and last week, at a local pizza joint, literally motioned the parmesan cheese away and groaned that “I’m trying to cut back,” so I dunno, do you really want me writing for you?
