Best Practices For Effective Design Of "About me"-Pages | Design Showcase | Smashing Magazine. Smashing Magazine routinely comes out with posts that have 50+ examples of something.

My About Me page isn't that exciting -- certainly not creative or artsy enough to make Smashing Magazine's list. I work on my About Me every now and then, trying to figure out what to say because I know it's one of the most read pages on a blog. I just updated my About page page again tonight, adding a little more detail. I'm never quite sure if it's interesting or if answers questions people have.
