Writing About Myself Is Hard

You’d think that having a blog would have prepared me for this moment. For SxSW, I have to write a short and long bio… about me. You would think that someone who talks as much as I do would be able to come up with a paragraph describing myself. But, every time I start, I get self-conscious about writing about myself in the third person and it goes all Bob Goulet on me. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Kevin Lawver is a passionate lover of web standards (which his wife oddly doesn’t mind). He french kisses his CSS and makes sure all his tags are closed so the neighbors don’t gossip. Kevin (that’s me) loves writing valid semantic markup by candlelight, and desperately wishes that Barry White had written a love song about CSS3 Selectors. But, Kevin realizes that it’ll probably be country music that brings us our first song about CSS – and it will unfortunately probably be about adjacent siblings. Kevin longs for the day when all browsers hold hands in harmony and web developers, management and designers all understand and love standards and understand their benefits. Kevin would also really like a cookie.

What do you think? Too much?

    I think it’s great. You might say where you work.

  2. Excellent motif, although a little racey, which works for you.

    Awesome! (And even more so if you leave off the cookie sentence…)
    Are you coming out to trashtalk at the kickball field? I really, really hope so!

  4. SusanL says:

    Perfect! I vote to leave the cookie in… it is a very elegant finish. If you have some lyrics to that country song you should add those in as well 🙂

  5. Jen says:

    Well, if we’re voting, I say leave off the cookie part.
    I love it!
    I love you!
    Um, can I have your cookie?

  6. Josh says:

    I say leave the cookie in, but only if it is a standards-compliant cookie that all browsers can accept/understand.

  7. Selamawit says:

  8. Ace says:

    I’d keep the cookie. it’s a cute and appropriate finish.
