I Created A New "About" Page

I always love to click on the "About" pages on new blogs I discover.

What about you? Do you stop to take the time to read the "About" page on blogs?

I had an "About" page which was "bleh" so I took it down.

This evening I reworked it...

...adding a bit more personal and some photographs...

What do you think?  Do you feel like you "know me" better?  Too wordy...still "bleh"???!!!  Be honest...I can handle it!   :)



  1. I. Love. It. Really Val...nice work...and I am so with you on making our home a safe place from the rest of the your passion for all things home, friend!

  2. IT looks GREAT! And I do know more about you now :) The only thing that I'd suggest....what if you put the child's name by the picture...only so people don't have to keep scrolling back up to reread the name? There's a lot of info to take in on that page. And that is not a bad thing. Way to go. Now you have my mind clicking, but I'm still playing Florence Nightengale here!

  3. Thanks, Billie Jo! Wouldn't you just love to hang out together???!!!

    Patty, wonderful suggestion! I already made the changes. Thanks for your kind words...hope everyone starts feeling better soon!


  4. Valerie-

    It looks great! The "about me" page can be so difficult. How do you define yourself and your values in a paragraph or two? I love how you did it by making little subheadings and then incorporating photos as well as a little more info. about your interests and your family.

    Now, I am thinking my "about me" needs updating too. I think it has been years since i have even looked at mine....

    God Bless, Kari

  5. @kari...thanks dear Friend! I appreciate your kind words. I have the best blogging buddies!!!

  6. I love it! It's perfect. I need to get me one of those.

  7. Looks good girl! I so need to find time to post and to make cool changes to ALL THIS AND HEAVEN like you have made here. Love it!

  8. I like it! I usually read it when I find a new person--you did a great job!

  9. I enjoyed reading your about page. I like reading people's about pages. That is why I re-did mine not long ago too. We share a passion for aprons. I love making and wearing aprons too.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
