@umbra21 - Well, to be honest, an interview might work there as well. Either find one online, or make one up and then answer the questions.
I find that can help even when you're writing a profile of a place rather than a person. It makes you think outside the box. And a lot of the questions can be applied to a place (even though you are guessing the answers). Like "what has been the most exciting thing to happen to you" or "what was your life like when you were young?".
It just gives you a list of starting points and major events to mention in your profile and can help you to see whether or not they are important.
