Got Social?

first stab

The first suggestion is to work on your “about” page. I think this is a good idea since it, as the instruction says, is how readers get information about you in order to contextualize the content of the blog.

I don’t have an about page in my blog but I do have an area in the top header. I decided to add some text there – which includes my name, my title, where I work, how to get me by email, and a link to my web site (which explains why I use “sorry.afk” – http://www.sorry-afk.com)

I’ll come back to this first days entry as there was more to read and perhaps more to update. Until then….
