    I agree with this 100%. I also think it’s important to let people know the real you. The fun, quirky yet professional side of you. For instance, I have in my about me that I love target’s one dollar section, which I mean seriously, I do! <3

  7. September 18, 2017 / 7:05 PM

    I am currently working on updating my about me page so thank you for sharing! its so hard to write about yourself in an engaging way i find!

    I love these tips! I do have an About Me, but I could probably do a better job and revise it. I love when people have really specific information or just fun, random facts about themselves. It gives me more of an idea about who they are. I’m going to bookmark this and come back to it later when I revise mine(:

    I have redone my about me page several times over the last few years. Looks like a good time to review it once more. Thanks for the tips.

  11. September 19, 2017 / 3:17 AM

    Okay. One of the very first pages I wrote was my About Me page. I feel that I may need to go back and review to ensure this aligns to who I really am. And honestly your word EPIC really is bothering me haha. I keep thinking, “is my About Me page epic??” It DOES have to be EPIC!!”

    I haven’t updated my About Me page in forever. That is definitely something I need to work on. Thanks for all the tips!

  14. September 19, 2017 / 11:35 PM

    These are fantastic tips for any blogger to follow! I remember racking my brain trying to figure out what to do when I had to write my “About Me” page for the first time and having little to no ideas whatsoever!

    I feel like you wrote this for me as a friend who is like “Kylie, seriously, your about page sucks – you need to re-write a good one!”

    Thanks for the kick up the butt and most importantly, for the wonderful insightful guide! When I rewrite my about page today, it’s thanks to you! x 🙂

  18. September 24, 2017 / 5:23 PM
