We have a tendency to write our online biographies as if they are resumes. Even worse is when we write them full of inside jokes or self-deprecating humor.
We do business with people we know, like, and trust. Your online bios need to show your human side. Are you into golf? Let’s talk about it. Do you have children, design tattoos, or grow watermelons? Let’s talk about your PHP skills in your case studies and leave the resumes for LinkedIn.
In this workshop, we rewrote our bios. I’ll helped attendees with the formula I came up with for over 40 speaker bios I’ve written for WordCamp speakers. The goal was to leave this workshop with a finished product you can apply to your sites immediately.
Thank you for your awesome training yesterday! You gave so many powerful tools and you have such a fun personality! You had my wife and I laughing so hard and learning so much at the same time. 😂

Loving the hilarious real talk from Bridget (@YouTooCanBeGuru) on writing a solid bio for your website, speaking gig, social profile. This will be great for client work, as well. Check out her "Mad Lib" bio creator you can copy to your Google Drive https://t.co/JUNpBbuFw9 #WCUS https://t.co/4vl7RzbixG
