So, Who the Hell is Tom Darby?

During some boring-ass webinar, the speaker said the ‘About’ page is the most important post on any website. He added, “The first sentence must grab your customer by the throat.”


Here goes: “The wolf never needs to explain what he’s all about.”

No, you say. Doesn’t do anything for you, doesn’t explain what’s what?

Well, fuck it then! Let’s do it my way…

Born in Chateauroux, France, raised in Klamath, California, I live in Spanish Springs, Nevada. And as a Nevada Broadcast Association Hall-of-Fame radio personality and former news reporter, I write about things I find interesting.

There. All done.

    Oh crap! I’m supposed to write and “About” page?

    I’m screwed. I could just default to the Twitter profile I had for over ten years.

    “I’m just me.”

    Yup, that works.

    Being Authentic is a gift that has been given you! You know who you are. Fuck everything else. Makes getting older a lot more fun. Have you taught writing courses? 💙
