I received some great advice in the forums recently and I would like to share to new hubbers..include a bio in each and every hub so that the reader can see you are genuine. It looks better too. Just thought I would share.
Yes, excellent idea, Jesse. We were all pleased when HP added this feature. It gives the writer credibility. However, I don't have one on each and every hub because I don't proclaim to be an "expert" in everything. For example, I don't have bios on my recipe hubs because cooking is not my expertise, only something I do because HP gives us the opportunity to share recipes we feel passionate about or has special meaning to us. But I think you can use bios in different ways, like if you have a great passion or hobby, it might not hurt to say that in a bio.
I think including a bio gives the reader a connection with who you are, whether an expert or not. I enjoy reading the bios.
I had to laugh about this because I think I was the one who explained how to do it, yet I have to confess I've been lazy and only created a bio for a few of my Hubs. It's a relatively new feature and I just never got around to it. I really need to get on it!
