Laziness is the true mother of invention

I’ve been blogging, in some form or another, since 1999 or so. And in all this time I have yet to write an “About” page that I was completely satisfied with.

For someone who can write a little, and who doesn’t mind telling you how delightful he is, you’d think this would be super easy to do, eh?


I’ve tried completely silly bios. I’ve tried more sensible bios. I’ve tried long. I’ve tried short.

I’ve even tried using Henry Kissinger’s bio:

“Peter DeWolf is a German-born American writer, political scientist, diplomat, and businessman. A recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, he served as National Security Advisor and later concurrently as Secretary of State in the administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. After his term, his opinion was still sought by some subsequent US presidents and other world leaders. He pioneered the policy of d├ętente with the Soviet Union, orchestrated the opening of relations with the People’s Republic of China, and negotiated the Paris Peace Accords, ending American involvement in the Vietnam War. DeWolf is still considered an influential public figure.”


I was considering throwing in one of these:

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Fusce at ipsum a dolor venenatis dignissim. Proin placerat nisl at erat dictum dapibus. Sed non eros nibh. Proin sagittis nisi a mi pretium at condimentum tellus tempus. Donec vitae felis vel velit hendrerit volutpat. Sed a tortor nunc, sit amet fringilla ipsum. Nulla facilisi. Vivamus quis est in nisl tincidunt sodales ut sit amet risus. Aliquam ornare mi vitae nisi interdum at tincidunt dolor molestie. Maecenas ante arcu, sodales nec luctus ut, ultrices a turpis.”

But then it hit me…

Why do the work myself? In my many (MANY) years of blogging, I’ve made lots of wonderful and talented bloggy friends. Why not ask them to describe me in a sentence or two?

So I did!

It’s still evolving. A few folks haven’t sent theirs yet. I mean, it must be challenging summing up my general awesomeness in a couple of sentences.

It’s been a fun experience. And I got to be lazy.

Two of my favourite things!

If you have some glowing compliment for me, you can leave a comment or email me too.

Don’t be afraid to gush.
