    A freelancer's website- point of view in text?

    I'm just about finished redesigning my site, and now that the content-writing phase is approaching, I find myself asking "from what point of view should I write in?"

    - my website's name has NOTHING to do with my name.

    Should I write in the "we" form? Should I write "Croatiankid designs"? Should I combine? Should I take a full-on personal approach and use "I", together with a photo of myself? Even if I don't use the last, I'm still thinking of including one in the "about" page.

    I realize the website's name is completely stupid lol, and I'm definitely changing it, but not until September, so I have to make do with what I have (croatiankid.com).

    Thanks for the tips

    I would definitely recommend making it from your own POV. Use the fact that you're a one-man show to your advantage - you can offer personalized service and quick response time, etc.

    I think it just depends on how you want to come across. If you want people to think you're a business take the "we" approach, if you don't then take the "I" approach.

    One thing for sure...I would choose one or the other and focus on that and, like kewlceo said, how it can be towards "their" advantage. I definitely would not mix "we's" with "I's".
