What is “about” all about?
What is an about page suppose to contain? Obviously it should be about me but how much about, and what about? Do readers want to know about me? Do they care? Do you care? Well I’d like to think so. It took me a long time to discover who I was and I’m quite proud of who I am if a little insecure at times! but I will try and make it brief and informative. I am an on line presence creator. Don’t I mean web designer? No. I specialise in taking on line services and platforms like Yahoo ( as a service for example) or YouTube (as a platform) and finding the embeddable widget and badges to unify a users on line presence linking back to a central place with a unique domain name. The end result may indeed be a web page and yes I will design that web page but in terms of design I ain’t ever gonna win any awards! Another big thing about me is that I have a foot firmly rooted in Second Life and the world of Adventure Gaming. My alter ego flourishes in a virtual world created by Linden Labs exploring much the same in that cyberviod as I do in the cyberworld. My technological sense of magic and awe is fed and nourished by Second Life in the same way the magic and spectacle of live theatre feeds my real world imagination. The final thing about me is the theatrical. Making dreams reality, exploring characters and stories, shaping a world and living in the confines of that world. Mmm I need to think about this more… I leave you with this, my facebook about me entry…”Those who know, know! Shy but wild… calm but crazy… Eyes open, wise and hiding. Show me the way and I’ll smile and shine. Collector of the exquisite and the small. Lover of freedom and the imagination.”. Reading back over this posting… I haven’t helped much! What do you think?
