Integrate your About.me profile in WordPress

Integrate your About.me profile in WordPress

About.me is a very interesting service that allows us to make a kind of online business card on which to concentrate all our coordinates in the network (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, personal blog, etc.) and show the best of ourselves. In just two years, the service has become very popular among users and it is rare to find a link to profile, for example, on the website link includes personnel in Twitter user profiles.

Since About.me works as card and that if we look like the image we project to the outside, we probably spent time that our profile has the best look possible, therefore, makes sense that we refer our profile in the services that we use and also be easy to integrate for example on our blog .

With this idea, About.me has launched a widget so we can integrate our virtual business card in our blog in WordPress, whether we have it hosted on your own server (or hosting service) and if we use the service offers Automattic on WordPress.com ( which also has a widget available ).

The installation and activation is simple, download the widget and install it and then access the widgets section (under “appearance”). From there, all you have to do is drag and drop the widget to activate it and insert it in our blog. The widget About.me lets you customize some aspects of the design (basically the size) and also to insert a picture of our service profile also includes buttons with links to our coordinates in the network (Google+ profile, Twitter, Facebook , LinkedIn, etc.), therefore, can save us from having to pass another plugin for this task.

A widget that is worth keeping in mind, for example, for our blog.
