Novice Blogging - Note #9 (Some Kind Of Special)

Thursday, October 21, 2010
Mama's Losin' ItToday's Novice Blogging Note is some kind of special. Why you may ask?
Did you notice that it came out on a Thursday (when it's usually on a Wednesday)? There's a reason for that. Today's Novice Blogging Note is actually brought to you by Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop, who prompted me to write a post all about ME!

Well, okay, (hope I don't twist my tongue saying this) the prompt was about an ABOUT ME PAGE, not just all about me. But hey, any chance to talk about oneself is a good thing right? That's why we bloggers do what we bloggers do......

The About page was actually one of the first pages I did when I first started this blog not too long ago. And let me tell you, it was definitely one subject that was difficult to shut up about. It just went on a never-ending mode.....'cause you just know so much about yourself, don't you?

In the end, I decided to do some chopping....and more chopping. Chop! Hack! Slice! And voila! Check out the work-in-progress here....

The About page is very important to all blogs as it lets the readers:
- get to know you, the blogger, a bit better
- get to know what your blog is all about (duh!)
- get hold of you when they need to strangle you (lol!)

It has been more than 2 months since my About page has been published (far too long already if you ask me). Maybe it's time to spruce it up a bit. I wrote it when my blog was still unsure about its path or direction. Maybe I can add a section for my kids and hubby as blog experimental subjects or something. What do you think?

Any suggestions?

    Its hard to write an about me page. I had mine sitting blank for ages before I wrote a half ass post, that I don't like but still have up there.

    Yeah, I really need to work on it too.

    I like your About page, but yes, I think it would be nice to hear something about your family too! VERY cute pic at the bottom of the About page. :))

    What about... why you write? What started you blogging? (not that I took my own advice at

    Stopping by from Mama Kat's Workshop. Great about me section. Not too long and not too short. While I too enjoy writing about myself like that, I hardly like to put such concise terms about me so I chose another writing prompt today. You just an awesome job though and I commend you for that. I'm your newest follower. Check me out too at

    How wonderful that you are able to talk so easily about yourself. I strugle with it and often cannot do it. I fought to get the blog ithat I did.

    I change mine periodically as my blog and I evolve. People want to know more about who they are reading. Go with what feels right!

    Yay, another person from JOZI and we happen to have the same name ( well almost ) too. I love that you are so true to your heritage, where you are now and then your surname really puts another picure in ones mind. Nice blog. Visiting from Mama Kat's
