I know you by your face, at least the face I see on twitter.
I get use to seeing the same avatars everyday and when they change it takes me a while to make the mental switch as to who you are.
But as I look at everyones avatars and even check out their bios to find out more, I am always curious as to what the back story is of everyones bio and avatar?
So I want to know, what is the story behind your bio and avatar?
Anything funny that we would not know about when the picture was taken? How much do you actually resemble your avatar? How much time did you spend on your bio? Does it accurately describe you? Do you feel its important to include everything you do so people will be interested in you?
I will start us all off here.
As you can see I have put my location as Nashville/St. Louis/Australia. I currently live in Nashville, grew up in St. Louis and thought I would throw everyone off by saying Australia. Do not really know what was going through my head at the time I posted that, but I thought it would be funny to just say Australia. Makes me look like a world travelor or something like that.
My bio simply says this:
I help bands connect with fans through social media. I like my coffee black and my dog Jack.
I use to role with a great line from the greatest band in the world U2 that said this
Just give me 3 chords and the truth
At the time I decided to make that my bio I was tired of reading all these fake bios that people constructed to make themselves important. I was ready to just get the truth and so that became my bio. I have now gone back to a more “traditional” way of telling you what I do. But I also want to make it a little fun and let you know that I do indeed drink my coffee black (actually I have never drank it any other way, first cup of coffee was a black cup of Folgers coffee, I grew 3 chest hairs that day). I also want you to know that I love my dog Jack. I am not a dog person, but my dog Jack is the absolute greatest. In fact, he is on my Christmas card this year (keep your eyes open for that). And if you notice…it rhymes. Pretty clever, I know.
My picture or avatar is a whole other story. I took that pic in the technical booth at Cross Point here in Nashville about a month ago. At the time I was watching Sunday night football and saw those glasses on the desk and decided to snap a pic. Here is the original picture below:
I feel like Lady Gaga in this photo.
Well, now you have the full picture. Now it is your turn to share with us the story of your bio and avatar.
