Here's a high-level blueprint of my website.

enter image description here

  • Social proof (testimonials, interviews) should appear on which page?

  • I'm considering adding an "Interesting Facts" page. The unique thing about me is I have a wide knowledge base. I almost always have a relevant story or fact related to a situation and I'm good at random trivia or quizzes. I thought including an "Interesting Facts" page might make my design more emotionally appealing. What's your perspective on this? Kind of like how the Nielsen Norman Group has a People page.

Having a full page dedicated to interesting facts about yourself seems a bit over the top and, for me at least, would not inspire confidence in anyone I was reading them about.

If you feel that they are appropriate for your audience and that it may help them to relate, then include them in your "About Tyler Longan" page.

Very insightful, John. One note is that the interesting facts would be about the world, and not about me. How do you feel about Sagmeister's 'Answers' page? sagmeister.com –  Tyler Langan Nov 28 '12 at 15:26

@TylerLangan I think that is a poster example of designers ignoring UX completely. –  JohnGB Nov 28 '12 at 15:47
