I created an ‘About.me‘ page a few years back. I didn’t have this website live at the time and needed something to link to from my Twitter profile, so I thought a page with some essentials about me and links to my LinkedIn and Twitter pages would suffice. I use it as a digital business card. I could make better use of it and promote it in other ways both digitally and in signatures etc professionally, but with work signatures not allowing the use of ‘About.me’, I am restricted to it only being for my personal use.
Reflecting on the text on the about.me page, I could say a little more about myself and have some links to my portfolio. I could also put a link on this website to the about.me page and vice-versa. It could do a better job of representing me online. One more for my to-do list I think!
