Writing a Bio can be difficult and time consuming. Coming up with a bio that is NOT boring is needed to keep your reader’s attention. I recently found an article that will help you write a good bio quickly. Here is the link to the article on Copylicious and below is the meat of the article. I personally would like to see something different in a person’s bio.
Besides the questions featured in the article why not answer some questions that show how human you are or show your honesty?
Besides all of your accomplishments, I would love to hear about your life’s funniest moment, your most embarrassing moment, how an iconic figure molded your personality from the time you were young, the wisest thing once said to you or how some impact on your life, for example – living with a loved-one in a wheel chair or a relative who had hearing impairment – made you more patient and understanding. These are all insights into your life that make reading a bio more interesting. Also, just like writing a paper, why not “wow” the reader with your opening statement by writing one of these stories.
What would you do if you won the lottery? If you had a second career, what would it be? If you could choose just one super power, what would that be? I would like to have the power to stop time (does that give you insight into my personality?) Do NOT expose your political or religious views, you may be eliminating a segment of your clientele.
