  1. Awesome bio, Jake! Your picture perfectly fits your description and shows personality and sports interests as well as your formality and credibility as a writer. Maybe you could include the names of sports articles you have written (even though we probably wont recognize the titles). Lastly, including your dogs name was a good strategy to promote personal connections with your readers–everyone loves their pets!

  2. Jake, I really like how thorough your bio is. Not only do you establish credibility as a writer, but you show some personal characteristics as well which altogether creates a holistic view of yourself as a writer. Your picture adds to this by further showing the reader where your interests in writing lie. I particularly like the lines about your mother’s macaroni and cheese, and your dog, Mugsy. I feel that they nicely offset the tone of the two previous paragraphs and show honesty in your writing.
