Resume As Bioblog As Blog

A Cutline Bioblog – Using WordPress To Grab Attention Fast

Here’s a bioblog that incorporates WordPress’s popular Cutline theme. It not only is attractive and inviting, but can be used both digitally (with activated links) or as an attachment (pdf or jpeg); it can even be printed and mailed, accompanied by a cover letter personally signed in blue ink. [Remember: it’s just bait!] This blog-like bioblog shows how well the art form works to combine the creative character (of your bio) with the contemporary appeal of a blog.

Compare this bioblog to a traditional resume: What a difference graphic design makes! Why should advertising 20+ years of global experience and hard-earned expertise not be as powerful as a typical ad for a mass-produced luxury car or a shiny chronograph? Why shouldn’t self promotion (of talent, know how and potential value) be couched in graphic terms just as “exotic travel” or “fine cuisine” be promoted, which do not offer anything more than a limited experience of fading value over time?
