101 Fun Fact Prompts For About Page Inspiration

*trumpet voice* Da-da-da-DAAA!

You know that moment when you’re staring at your computer screen struggling to think of a SINGLE fact about yourself that could actually, realistically, be considered FUN?! 

Listen. Before I was a freelance copywriter, I experienced my fair share of working on highly collaborative teams. And while I loved working with people and having a coworker other than my cat, I have to admit – icebreaker activities stress me out.

I’ve led them.

I’ve joined them.

I’ve talked my way out of them.

But no icebreaker stresses me out more than the simple give your name, your job title, and a fun fact about you! I’m the girl who always has to say: “Come back to me!” during get-to-know-you activities. 

I like fun. I like facts. But the mere mention of the words fun and fact next to each other makes my mind go blank. (If you were wondering, I usually land on “I’m an identical twin” or “I studied abroad for three semesters in college.”)

So when a client requested I send her some possible fun fact prompts to include on her about me page template, I went a little overboard.

This list was made for you if you want to personalize your about me page but struggle to know where to start. That’s right – I’ve done the hard work for you.
