Day Six: Make an Irresistible “About” Page
We read blogs because we love the people behind them.
When a visitor is intrigued by your site, they’ll want to know more about you.
Today, create and publish an “About” page, and adapt it into a widget for your home page.
- First, create a new page by clicking on the button below.
- Next, write your description — use your Day One post for inspiration if you’d like — and click Publish.
- Finally, go to My Site > Customize, then select the Widgets tab. Add a Text Widget with a one- or two-sentence version of your story, and click Save and Publish.
Widgets are little items you can add to your blog to provide more information, like a short description of who you are, a photo, your latest tweets, and more.
Today you’ll add a Text Widget, but there are dozens of options — Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.
We’re looking forward to learning more about you and your blog!
