How interesting is your online profile?

I hate to write about myself as much as the next person.  When creating an account on any social media site I often clam up and leave my biography information blank.  I just don’t know what to write.  In the article The Importance of a Compelling Bio Amber Riviere shares, not only a fantastic name with yours truly, but also the benefits of allowing others to see your interesting personality. Don’t be afraid to be authentic and leave a lasting impression.
