Zero to Hero Challenge Day 8

Today’s assignment: create an About page, or revisit and improve the one you have.

Today challenge is to make the about page more personal and informative.  I’ve updated my about many times since the blog was born. The last time I used advice I from Michael Hyatt’s book, Platform.  He suggested adding links your most popular posts on the about page to let readers see a glimpse into the blog.

For this assignment, I updated the most popular and most liked posts. I also added a few pictures and updated some text from my reintro post from day 1. Is there anything else I should add? what would you like to know?
you can see my about page here. Or click the link on the navigation bar at the top of each page.

This is one of the nicest sets I’ve seen.  It’s huge measuring over 9” (23cm) high, 16” (42cm) wide and 9” (24cm) deep. I can fit this somewhere in my house. It even has inanimate carbon rod.

The roof is removable and you can swing the house open and play on the two story interior. There is a lot of play to this set.

Yes I want this set. It would easily fit on my book case, unlike the Tower of Orthanc set. Both set are the same price which would I rather have? I’m a big fan of both series. My birthday is not in February but my unbirthday is.
