How to display the “About Me” widget?

The best way to build trust is by being transparent and straightforward. Your description on the website matters on multiple levels: on the one hand, it is a quick way of creating a connection between the content and the person behind the scenes, and on the other, people can get a clue about who you are through a piece of your story.

Julia offers room to display a short bio and image on any Sidebar using a widget. Below is an example of how the end result can look like:

About me section in the home page sidebar

To add one, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Appearance → Customize Widgets → select the Widget Area where you want to add the “About me” section; our recommendation is to choose one of the available Sidebar widget areas.
  2. Click on the Add a Widget button and search for the Text widget.
  3. Add a Title (e.g., About me) and a short text bio in the text area below. To add an image, use this HTML code <img src="image URL"> and replace image URL with the URL of your image. Here is a helpful screenshot.

If you want to choose a particular place to display the widget on your website, please install and activate the JetPack plugin, then enable the JetPack Visibility option.
