Albert Berg is a writer, mad scientist, and freelance zombie apocalypse preparedness consultant.
He lives in Florida.
Writing about oneself in the first person should be reserved only for replying to comments upon one’s blog-post. In every other case the third person should always be used. How else can one possibly be self-deprecating – and get away with it!
Hahaha! How funny. I’m seriously going to steal your idea and start putting that at the end of my bios. I’m too diffuse of a writer to ever get one just the way I like it.
i enjoy your writing about writing. it’s just what i need to read to get me to write. i think. thank you for sharing.
I am starting to feel the same way. So, i signed up for the subscription! 🙂
Yes, exactly! Your posts made me feel like getting off my duff and getting back to the keyboard…despite the icky limabean flavor. Thank you.

A blogger clicked on Albert Berg’s “about” page, read it, and chuckled at the bit about writing in the third person.
Then he thought, “Wouldn’t it be weird if I wrote my comment in the third person and, on top of that, in past tense?”
With rising anxiety, he wondered if he was indeed using past tense, or past something else, but he quickly decided it didn’t matter. Albert isn’t judgmental.
The blogger, satisfied with his little comedy routine, clicked the “post comment” button beneath the text box and went on with his life.
Hey hey Albert, I’ve given you an award. 🙂
Hi Albert. I see by the comment above this, that someone else gave you an award. Looks like a trend. Here is the Versatile Blogger Award: http://thefirstgates.com/2012/04/13/versatile-bloggers/
