Really Random Thursday – About Page

Have you ever actually read a blogger’s About page? Lately? I  have been friends with some bloggers for about four years now, ancient in Internet times. I think I sort of know them but I’ve been having fun lately reading their About pages. (By the way, if you’re a blogger, when was the last time you updated your About page?)

I am becoming a big fan of Sweetwater designs. I was reading their About page, and love the short and sweet list of questions each of them answered. It’s really hard to narrow down answers to such basic questions, so I thought it would be fun to share some random favorites today as part of Cindy’s weekly Really Random Thursday party:

1. Favorite foods: cereal, fruit

2. Favorite restaurant(s): Capital Tap Haus, Panera Bread, Gray’s Tied House,

3. Favorite color: blue-green

4. Favorite activity: hiking, sewing, drawing, watercolor painting, gardening

5. Favorite item of clothing: jeans, concert tshirts, Chucks

6. Favorite type of music (or groups): hard rock and alternative (such as Linkin Park and 30 Seconds To Mars)

7. Favorite beverage: coffee, water, red wine

8. Favorite season: Spring

9. Favorite designers: Anna Maria Horner, Alexander HenryKristian A. Howell, Kelle Boyd, to name just a few of my current favorites

10. Favorite artists: hard to narrow it down but these come to mind: Alisa Burke, Neryl Walker, Mary Cassatt, Jules Cheret

11. Really random: favorite typography artist: Kimberly Geswein.

Wanna play along? Feel free to leave your answers in the comments. It would be fun to learn more about You and some of your random favorites.

  • We love Panera Bread too! Ayden always asks “can we go to the healthy place mommy?!”

    I like to look at about pages too to see where people are from and how they started sewing/quilting.

  • What a fun idea! And even better to learn more things about you.

  • Your post is very timely as I have been thinking about updating my About Me page….definitely out of date. I like your random favorites questions and answers. I also like the color blue/green and my favorite item of clothing is jeans and a tank top layered with another shirt. I love the look of chucks but my toes get claustrophobic 😉 Give me flip flops any day!

    • Thanks Rene. I used to love flip flops too, but they started giving me shin splints, so I had to switch to something with a little more comfort. I still wear them, but not as much.

  • I do like to read the about page, and I’m always surprised when people read mine! Liked your little factoids about yourself. Sweetwater rocks!

    The about page is always one of the first pages I read if there is one available – they are a fun introduction to the person behind the blog. I also enjoy the random facts posts that you do 🙂

  • 1. Potatoes, 3. green, 4. anything crafty, 6. country, 7. wine (fortunately for me Italy has an abundance of really good inexpensive wine)

  • Thanks for sharing this with us, Terri! Very interesting 🙂 Hope you’ve had a great week.
    My answers:
    1. Greek food/ cheese… French cheese. 🙂
    2. Mavrommatis (=Greek)
    3. Turquoise
    6. Everything but Electro/ House music.
    7. Rosé wine, Pastis… yes I’m from Southeastern France.
    8. Summer

  • I enjoy the About pages as well. I am really disappointed when the blogger doesn’t write one! But a great reminder to update our pages too. So nice to know more about you!
