A friend is forwarding my bio to his agency’s new social media director who might need some outside help. As I was touching up a paper copy to send as an attachment, I asked myself, “Are you nuts?” Paper bios and resumes are so 20th century. My entire business life is there for everyone to see on my blog. I tooled around the web to find out what other social media consultants are doing and, sure enough, they have online bios.
Then another “boing” moment. I should add my new bio as a page on my blog, with a new tab “Social Media Bio.”
When I finished writing, I looked at my About page and it seemed bland in comparison. Dull actually. From me, the word mechanic (as someone once called me after I told him what I do). So I immediately ditched the About page.
This is not contest, in the sense that you won’t receive any prize, but I’d welcome your comments on my new Social Media Bio. I’m still tinkering with it. Think I’ll move the search box further up, and make a couple of other tweaks.
But I’d love to hear from you, dear readers, about what you like, don’t like or what I might add or delete. Thank you.
P.S. Since writing this post, I’ve updated my bio based on advice from readers and several experts, and also changed my navigation tab back to “About.” I’m still not sure I’m keeping that term. As always, your thoughts would be appreciated.
