I don't have bio but I'll do it. This post challenged me. Nice meeting you!

&carolynannaish It sure does. You're both right, &MeestahBarnes MANY don't have a bio/profile here.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I have a Bio! I feel like it makes it easier to connect with people. It gives it a personal touch.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Yes, it's nice to read about someone when you connect - so many don't have anything there.

There's no need to ask me, I already did my bio a while ago! ;) lol

&victoriav I'll have to go take a look :) At least you started out with one!

&sid556 I know, I READ it :)) Great profile {{{Hugs Back!}}}

&RJBRES Interrupt? Sorry, of course you may. What was that? LOL! Uh, &jabo I guess we'll ALL let him in, he's gotten here anyways and I will say, he's always got an updated and useful profile :) There. There are still many that have "no bio" showing. Wonder why?

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I did it already. I went in and wrote up one....just for you. {{{HUGS}}}

&sid556 Well, okay, thanks, they put this in random! I'm random :)

&Gommish LOL, go for it :)

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Ok ok....I've left mine blank. I'll see what I can come up with....just for you, hon. ok?

Flag this comment as inappropriate

geez, now I feel like I have been a little stingy with information :(
I will go think about my bio now.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I agree with you... it is disappointing not to see a bio. Gloria :)))

I love reading people's bio. I have added a little to mine but have to go back and elaborate a bit more I feel.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Let me fix that, I'll seeif I can concoct something interesting and mostly true.

I've noticed that many don't fill out a profile. It would be nice if they would. I get so excited when I see people from far away countries.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I will check to see if I have one filled out.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Someone who had been kind enough to connect with me (I've only been here for three days) suggested this very thing - and of course he was right. Great advice.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

What do you think &katlnhat ? (Laughing) - see, I'm copying you &RJBRES - shall we let him in? On the plus side he is very amusing, and can contribute a lot ! (Smile)

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&katlnhat , &jabo , is the mutual admiration society meeting right now, or may I say a little something here as well? (smile!)

I think this post was a long time coming! I love to read a person's bio when they have one. I almost won't connect with them if they DON'T have one!

Thank you for letting me interrupt the two of you! (Laughing!)

&dalemario Thanks for reading, so I can come visit and read yours :)

&jabo So am I! We think a lot alike, which is a compliment to me!

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I'm always a bit disappointed when I find 'no bio'.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Hehehe, haven't filled up my bio yet. Thanks for the reminder.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&chris4moms Yes, it really does :) It's always the first thing I read!

Flag this comment as inappropriate

It does help a great deal to know more than just your name

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&marsha4852 I agree, and I don't think a "little" something like you've said, is asking too much. (one of my favorite Tutorial people!)

&AdrienneJenkins Neither do I and I'm still seeing "no bio" on lots. (another of my favorite Tutorial people!)

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Yes, I don't think people realize how important this is.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I agree with you I too think folks should put a little bit of something into their profile bio's. I mean we're reading other things they post, why not get to know them a bit better in the process.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I think mine is filled out....I think....now I'll have to look. ;)

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&jabo Me too, I'm the same way ;)

&KEPLING2 Thanks, about those eggs.........

&KarlCallwood I read that, it's amazing (to me) that there's no library. Wow...that's just sad!

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I love to read bios, feel disappointed when there isn't one.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&katlnhat Library? Huh? The island's public library system has been 90% shut down for the last few years while a fancy new building was being built. The dates are nebulous as to when most books will be back on the shelves, but it does sport a decent DVD collection.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&jbalaba_26 Thanks, I'll be over to read it :)

&DebbieCrochets I've read yours and it's good, I'll reread, though ;)

&KarlCallwood Our town never had one, isn't that what the library is for? That's still a big deal to us. I'll read that - wait, you have a library, don't you?

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&katlnhat *Sigh* Yep, in the old days...for me at least. My island no longer has a bookstore. The last one closed in August. :(

&KarlCallwood The old days? I still read those! :)

&momathome I read yours :)

&Dustin4ever I keep adding to mine and wondering if anyone reads it.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I wrote mine when I started and I updated it last month.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

It is like in the old days of book dust jackets. You always flipped the book over or opened the covers to read about the author before buying. Publishers considered this integral to marketing a writer. Biographies help readers relate to authors and people are more likely to trust and like writers that they know a little something about. The writer becomes less of a stranger and more an acquaintance. Biographies boost sales, readership and networking.

&Shellyann I just updated mine (again) so for now, I know what it says.

&Feisty That's funny, because a person's profile is the first thing I read on here!

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I agree -- it is nice to be able to read through the profile/bio and get a little background information on the writer. That being said, I am likely one of the worst offenders when it comes to filling out such information -- although I did do it almost immediately upon joining Bubblews.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I will have to go and check out my profile statement because I do not remember what it says.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

&timetravel Everything :)))

&Dustin4ever Really? I just added something to mine - I'm confusing too many people - how to spell katlnhat, k a t L n h a t

&PeggyWds It is and lots of people have filled them out.

&Beaufly I agree, that's sometimes what makes the difference on whether I read their articles, as I might not be interested in what's currently in the top five, but I'll keep looking - back a ways and always find somethings I do like.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

A little something is always good (and more engaging ).

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I agree that it is fun to know a little something about the writer.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Ya know - I never realized I never wrote anything about me! So what would you like to know that you don't already? LOL!

&LycaChic Thinking? Uh-oh :)

&zirwa Thanks, I thought so.
&crosstitcher Thanks, maybe I'll redo mine!

&1hopefulman I know you did, I've read yours :)

&justlikebooks And?????? :)

&carolroach Yes, it is, I've read it!

&rusty2rusty Me too, I just thought of something I ought to add to mine, thanks for the reminder!

&busybee Great, that's the first thing I read, always!

&GhostlyGhoul That it is, well put.

&Cometomama It really does.

&abitosunshine Yours really does have enough and you're right, you're exactly who you are.

&Cynamin Yeah? Go for it, don't run out of room, yours is one of the best on here!

&wordsmatter I read your quote, I go for the profile/bio first.

&colleencranney Yep, I've read yours and it is very complete, you did a great job on it.

&barbsbooks You too, yours is well done and up to date.

&JudyE I do too, it's the first thing I read.

&buenavida Not everyone has a FB account, though and I do, but I'm never there.

&lizzie4734 Time to do one? :)

&wjlambert Ten per day? Don't know, I've never done half of that.

&StartFlatBroke I've read yours, you've got a lot of info there :)

&Nana Yours has enough.. to get me to read your articles, so you did great.

&RubyHawk That's true and I don't expect real names or anything personal - interests even, would be more than enough.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

It's the very first thing I did. I wanted people to know something about me.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I have a little something on mind. But I think I need to up date it.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Sorry about that. I didn't even realize I never filled it out for a long time and then I forgot about it. Now that I know someone cares to read it I will certainly fill it out. Thank you for the reminder.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

A complete profile is important it is your "bubblews face".

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Good idea! I have a short bio but that is mostly because I write a lot about the real me so it doesn't take but a glance at my article titles appearing on my profile page to let the visitor know they'll get an up close and personal look at me in my writings. I do read the info on profiles and appreciate it, especially if their articles are less personal.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

LOL maybe i should add something more to mines?

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Amen! I always fill out my bio. I'm much more likely to connect to people who have them. People who use the informer layout that makes it easy to see lots of posts and a bioi are much more likely to get me to click on that connect button.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I always like to read the bio
&buenavida Not everyone is on Facebook.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I checked my profile, and the bio is very short. But I put my Fb link there too, so anyone can go there and read more if they wish.. :)

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I guess that concern me,because I haven't written anything on mind,but why?I really don't know.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I finally got around to writing something after 3 days. Was too busy reading.. I still don't know how people have the time to crank out 10 articles per day, I've barely managed 2/ day

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I filled mine out the first day I was here, it's only sensible.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

good sugestions, cut some people don't care to put that information out there.
