“The library of my elementary school had this great biography section, and I read all of these paperback biographies until they were dog-eared. The story of Eleanor Roosevelt and Madame Curie and Martin Luther King and George Washington Carver and on and on and on.”

When it comes to making a website, there are two very distinct things you have to look out for, as far as I am concerned: the technical part, which includes all the designing, from user experience, user interface, look, etc.; and the emotive part, which is all about gut feelings and empathy, in the attempt to give a human “face” to the website.

Now, of course, there are actual people behind a website. Even companies are not distinct entities from the people who make them work. But the trick is actually making the users feel like they are interacting with something human.

One great way to start humanizing your website is creating an “About” section that does not read like a spreadsheet. Make it like a biography, where interesting and funny stories, blend seamlessly with useful information about whatever the website is promoting (you, your company, your brand, etc.)

To show you what I mean, I have put together a list of some of my favorite “About” pages from the internet.

1. Funny “About” pages

    I like your quotation selection by Quinn about reading school library biographies. I remember being motivated by them as well. It seems to me that maybe I had mainly read fiction until I was required in an elementary class to read a certain number of biographies. Once I got started on them, it was hard to stop! People are fascinating and it’s always interesting to see how folks overcome hardships to achieve their goals. Anyway, I’m trying to say that I agree with you that I adore it when people write interesting About pages!

    When you are considering new cleats, take into account your level of playing ability. If you are just starting out, choose cleats made from synthetic materials or plastics. You can invest in metal cleats if you are a more advanced player and need to get traction on different terrains.
