[My name] is the Education and Outreach Specialist at [my organization]. Studying Women’s Studies at Portland State University inspired her to focus her life on social justice, which is why she decided to pursue a career in nonprofits. She has also worked at [another nonprofit] and [yet another nonprofit]. She also volunteers at [another organization], a safe haven for GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County, both directly with youth and in fund development.

SO BORING. Like is that enough?

That sounds good to me. I don't have any experience writing professional bios though, so my approval doesn't mean much.

I would rephrase the second line to something like:

While studying Women's Studies at Portland State University, she was inspired to focus her life on social justice which led her to a career in nonprofits.

Or something like that

Tell me about the Afro Vegan one and the Chicago Diner one when you've used them some?

They both look good initially! (and both have booze cocktail recipes that look rad too)

Afro Vegan looks like it has way less intricate recipes than Vegan Soul Kitchen has, which is a plus.

That's good to know. I love VSK, but don't cook out of it often because it's time consuming (and sometimes expensive) as fork. The gumbo is amazing, though.

I made it longer. It is weird to not put dumb jokes in things I write. I'm terrible at being a professional.

[My name] is the education and outreach specialist for [my organization] and is responsible for community outreach and marketing, volunteer coordination and planning the upcoming gala and auction. She is also a freelance writer and an avid volunteer for [other organization], a safe haven for GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County, working both directly with youth and in fund development. When she was attending Portland State University to get her B.A. in Women’s Studies, she started interning for [another organization] and decided that a career in nonprofits was a natural extension of her passion for feminism and social justice. Right before she graduated she was hired as the full-time volunteer and field coordinator (and ended up writing much of her senior seminar paper on how children construct race in the context of their elementary school on a plane to Washington, D.C. so she could attend a conference for the new job). She has also worked at [yet another organization]. Raised by a psychologist and a clinical social worker, access to mental health care and the stigmatization of mental illness have always been important issues to her. She believes that peer support, particularly culturally competent peer support, is essential to achieving mental health equity.

I like the second one much more! I like how it ties in more threads of your values/experience, but still in a totally sensical way.

Apparently all I like to do in this thread is post links to Alexandra Franzen. After yesterday's recommendation of "How to say no to everything ever," today's is "How to write a totally profesh sounding bio."

http://www.alexandrafranzen.com/2013/08 ... nding-bio/

There are lots of things about her website and her writing that I'm not totally sold on, but I found a lot of her stuff really helpful, too. The bio page especially made me totally rewrite mine for my website, even though I wasn't even thinking about it when I first found my way to her site, and now my bio is way more engaging and better.

I like the template on that page, and she's got another one that is a bit longer and more personal-sounding (probably not as well suited for what you're doing right now) here: http://www.alexandrafranzen.com/2013/09 ... r-own-bio/


Here's my bio using that template, if that helps, too: http://www.clairemakes.com/?page_id=5 (Don't look at the rest of my website! It's a mess and I don't know what I'm doing or how to make subpages [or any other part of a website] work. Ugh.)

Those templates are super helpful! Now I want to write a bunch of different versions for different things. (This one is for a grant, so I don't think they care about my hobbies or anything...though maybe they do.)

Oh, I figured it was for a website bio for your organization!

Anyway, it seemed revolutionary to me, as somebody who has lots of professional interests and experience which seem disparate but which are all definitely inter-related for me, to start off with your broader vision for the world that integrates all those things, and then break it down into the different ways in which you're trying to create that world. (Rather than start with some things you do, and then try to justify why they all work together and totally make sense and you're not just a scattered person who's unable to commit!)

I actually want to update my website bio now too because it's really dumb, so I'm glad to have this!

I found this very confusing and honestly doesn't add much? I had to read it a few times to see what you meant. I think the rest is pretty good though.

I found out recently that it had been 45 years since my Pap-Pap had thrown up. I can't even imagine that. I was telling my dad, and he couldn't either--because we're both light weights when it comes to drinking, lol.

I'm going to the next city over with T's lady pals today to celebrate one of their birthdays and I'm so nervous. These girls always look perfect (hair/makeup/clothes) and I feel like such a schlep next to them. I have no idea what to wear. Also, I'm supposed to be getting a ride with them, and the control freak planner inside of me is trying REALLY hard not to be like 'exactly what time should I be at your house' because none of them are like that. They're all very go with the flow, generally. And two of them live together, so planning their stuff is easy because they're right there. I sometimes really hate text messaging for this reason. If it wasn't super dorky to just call and get all the details, I would. As it is, I feel like an over eager outsider being like, 'when are you leaving? if I come over at 4, is that cool?'

Maybe this belongs in the anxiety thread, ha.

It's stage 4 stomach cancer that has spread through his liver and lungs. I can't think right now.

I'm so, so sorry to hear that, Mr. Shankly. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Okay. I have my latte, I made a little play area for Molly, got a shiny new sketch pad for notes/drawings, I have study materials (thanks, ND!), and I'm going to try to knock out a lot of the optics and waves section of the physics teaching exam study guide.

If anybody sees me posting in the next 2 hours, yell at me! I have got to stop procrastinating.
