I’m always looking at better ways to present myself online, both professionally and personally. The hardest part is writing descriptive words that sound neither egotistical nor arrogant.
So we sometimes spend time reading about other people to discover ourselves.
Which is what I have done for most of this afternoon.
Whilst my original plan today was to find a sensible and simple browser-based editor which would enable me to post directly from the browser or cut-n-paste into my CMS of choice, the direction of my goal changed dramatically.
After going through many different sites (after googling ‘best about me pages’ or similar), I many different and amazing sites. Undoubtedly there are hundreds more, yet these appealed most to be today.
Follow the links to understand what this list is all ‘about’. I’ve collected these links for inspiration – for style, typography, layout and words.

Before you ask, It’s very important to understand why your ‘about page’ matters !
