I’m really loving About Me.
About Me is a service that provides a ‘custom splash page and personal analytics dashboard’.
It brings me back memories of then (circa 1995), when having a splash page for your website was the coolest thing ever. Those useless front page of a site that only contained awesome but slow loading graphics and flash animation with a mandatory blinking “Click here to enter site!”
Nowadays people forego a splash page because people basically just want to get the information they’re looking for as soon as possible.
So you might ask, why do I like About Me so much if I think splash pages are useless and a waste of time?
Well, let’s say, About Me reinvented the use of a splash page.
With so many social media sprouting like mushroom all over the internet, we just end up with a gazillion net addresses like twitter.com/leeyahgrl, or facebook.com/liaespinalopez, leeyahgrl.tumblr.com, plurk.com/gadgenista and so on. Now what About Me does is consolidate all those net addresses into one site, about.me/leeyahgrl.
It’s pretty much your online resume.
The great thing with About Me is you don’t need to hire a webdesigner to make a splash page. It’s very simple and easy to use. It’s easy as uploading an image and typing up a document. Plus, you get a nice about.me/insertnamehere address!
And for those who are statistic crazy, you’ll be enjoying the analytics About Me has to offer.
So go sign up for your about.me URL now and hope you get the name that you want!
When you’re done making your page, please share a link to your about.me page. I’m enjoying seeing how creatively personal everyone is getting!
