About Pages really aren't that complicated. So why are most of them so horrible? Quick ... read this, then go fix yours... A great idea, maybe I should do it! [note MG]
Does thinking about it make you stumble and sweat?
Have you put it off, because you’re worried it will suck?
You’re not alone — lots of website owners have an easier time proposing marriage than they do writing a solid About Page.
If that’s you, you’re probably overcomplicating things. A good About Page is simple, straightforward, and it communicates just a few key things.
But just because they’re simple doesn’t mean people don’t screw them up.
There are certain mistakes that I see again and again, on sites that deserve better. These mistakes are easy to fix and they’re pushing away the people you want to bring closer: your wonderful website readers.
