Advice on profile information.

    aka-djposted 5 years ago

    I have noticed several people write a profile of themselves, but put it all into one solid block.

    No paragraph division at all.

    I find them annoying to read. In fact, I don't even read them. that's how off-putting I find them.

    If you are one who does this, please change it.
    I will read them if it's broken up into easier to read chunks.

    What's your thoughts?

        No, it's not.

        I recognise it's only a minor issue, but it's not just big issues I discuss here.

        I even joke around at times. lol

      I just don't read them. And unless there's some reason why I think the hubs will be different, I don't read the hubs after I see that either, as I take it of a sign of what's to come.

    I know what you mean, aka-dj.  I've noticed that in other places, too, and it really is hard to read. I've been know to copy and paste a text into wordpad, just so I could separate it into paragraphs so I could actually read it without losing my place, lol.

    I agree that it does not make the best read to have large blocks of text anywhere.

    It tricks your brain into thinking that there is more information than their really is.

    Whereas, your brain seeing white space allows it to immediately recognize the information as small snippets.

    That's why they say (statistically) employers prefer resumes with a lot of white space.

    I'm over-exaggerating with the amount I'm breaking up this post, but you get the idea.

    Some HubPages posts are big blocks of text too. They probably wonder why they don't have many readers or commenters. Same for those in love with ALL CAPS.

    Of course, some stuff is just personal preferences. Some people don't like a post which is too spaced out - where each sentence is a paragraph.

    My pet peeve are Hubbers who don't give any information on themselves at all!  They will just have one or two sentences about themselves.  I like to know a little more about someone.
