What about it?

After reading photographer Neil Van Niekerk’s article about “displaying instead of saying,” I re-evaluated the content of my “About Me” page and ultimately decided to remove the page entirely. My website has always been just a fancy journal about myself and my interests, rather than a means to support and build a business, but Neil’s point is still relevant in terms of keeping things simple. If a person wants to know about me, the blog and various links I’ve included are the best way to do that, not some semi-effusive musing about where I’ve been and where I’m going. However if the goal of the site changes, I’ll likely reinstate the “About Me” page with content more aligned to what Neil advises.
