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.

Here’s how:

  1. First, create a new page by clicking on the button below.
  2. Next, write your description — use your Day One post for inspiration if you’d like — and click Publish.
  3. Finally, go to My Sites > 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.

Create a new page

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!

Cheers,
Michelle W. and the WordPress.com Team
