This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

FULFILLMENT:  Winning & Losing in One-Click America

Alec MacGillis will speak to his book, FULFILLMENT: Winning & Losing in One-Click America, and describe it as being about the country’s growing disparities between winner-take-all cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, New York and Washington, D.C., on the one hand, and the much larger group of cities and towns that are being left behind in an economy dominated by a handful of tech giants. The book tells this story of growing disparity through the frame of Amazon, and it includes a chapter on Dayton’s transformation from a hub of manufacturing innovation to a city that is increasingly given over to the logistics industry. He will speak to the nationwide context of the book but will end up focusing a fair amount on Dayton..
