Genre conventions of About Me pages (warm-up writing for 9.15)

Look at two of the samples of “About” pages below and write a post on your blog explaining the following:

  • describe (with specific examples) the textual features you see (what do the pages look like? how are they organized?) and the social purposes the pages serve (what are the authors’ specific purposes?)
  • reflect on your own About Me page. Ideally, what will it look like once you have fully composed and developed it? What is your social purpose? What textual or genre conventions would you like to incorporate into the page?
