View topic - 自己紹介, Corrections!
I put this on my 'about me' page on my blog, and I know it's quite basic Japanese but I was wondering if anything I wrote didn't make sense or was plain wrong, or if there was a more natural way to say anything.
I was trying to say something along the lines of; "My name's Katy, but you can call me Macca. I'm bad at writing self introductions. I'm 21 years old. I recently left university. When I was at university I studied computer science. Now, I work from home as a web developer. In my free time I like to read books, play games, take photographs and study foreign languages. I'm pretty average... for a geek."

Your Japanese introduction is good. Friendly, polite enogh, and I like "人並みのギーク".
さきに大学を出ました。sounds a little bit vague. 最近（さいきん）かな？(さきに is not wrong, but it sounds too proper expression for a casual writing. kind of old, and a bit trite here, I'm afraid)
ひまの時に本を読んだり、→ ひまな時に sounds more natural.
Hope it helps
