Bio & About Pages – First Person or Not?

By January 9, 2018News

I’ve just done a few tweaks and updates to my About page. I hate working with that page because I made the decision to write it all in the third person rather than the first person. I always read it back to myself and feel like an idiot. :-) Believe me when I say that I wasn’t intending to sound like a wanker.

It makes me feel uncomfortable every time I read it but it was done for a good reason. Writing it this way gives you much more opportunity to re-use your name multiple times. This is supposed to be good for SEO. That makes sense but I’m not sure if it is or not.

It is good to keep you a bit more objective when you write it and also makes you include all the good stuff. It does work but it’s not for everyone I guess.
