WRITING YOUR “ABOUT” PAGE (100)

Writing about yourself should be fairly simple – no one knows you better than you…hopefully. That said, many people find writing about themselves supremely difficult. The problem is that we know so much about ourselves that we don’t know where to begin or what to write; summarizing the essence of who we are can paralyze us as writers. The below bullets might help you get started writing your “About” page on your blog.

What goes on the “About” Page?

  • Who I am in the world. (e.g. you are a Senior in high school, a brother, a sister, a writer, a mathematician, an athlete, a gamer).
  • My mission, or what I want to accomplish goes here. (The most basic answer would be to fulfill your responsibilities in your English class and graduate, but that’s a boring answer! What do you want to get out of this class, this blog, this year…as a person, not just a student?)
  • A little bit about my life (e.g.  I like to play soccer…I like to go to the movies….I like to paint my face blue and gold and scream till I have a splitting headache at school basketball games! I like to sleep.)

If you are struggling, there are two things you can do:

  1. Go to Freedtopia and click on the “ABOUT PAGE HELP” located under the “ABOUT THIS BLOG” section
  2. Read Freedman’s “About Freedtopia” page.
