About Me Widget – it looks like a typo – as though it should be About My Widget. But no, it is correct. It a widget with which you can display your About Me credentials.
I got an email today from Laura from About.me. She pointed me to the page on the WP.com site that explains how to use it. I thought it was something very new, but I see it is in a post from WordPress Support dated August 15th.
But there must be something NEW with the widget because Laura says:
We’re proud to announce the new about.me WordPress Widget. And you are the first to know about it! It provides an instant About section to your blog and is easy to add.
Update From Laura
Just to note, it’s brand new on wordpress.org and the wordpress.com got some style updates before today’s announcement.
We sent the announcement to everyone that has wordpress on their about.me page – so that is the first group to hear about both!
I Added It Here
As you will see if you look over to the right >>>>> I added it. I already had an About.me page, so it took just a couple of seconds to add. Of course, I tweaked my About.me page to make sure it was up-to-date.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog, then the email from Laura explains that you should head over to the WP Repository to get the About.me widget plugin.
