Fellowship of Saints and Sinners


New and Improved “About Me,” Thanks To Bigtime Blogger Michael Hyatt

John Hyatt is the former chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing.

New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt knows a thing or two about blogging.  More than 272,000 people subscribe to his blog on “intentional leadership.”

Hyatt’s book, Platform: Get Noticed In a Busy World, contains all sorts of helpful tips for aspiring authors and other thought and small business entrepreneurs seeking a voice in today’s ginormous and buzzing blogosphere.

You can now read my much expanded and revised About Me page, all thanks to Hyatt’s tips on how to craft an effective one.  In other words, if you don’t like it, please blame Hyatt.  But seriously, will you read it and tell me what you think?

Advent Resurrection
