The about.me WordPress widget in the wild

Wow!
It’s been fantastic to see everyone sharing their WordPress blogs with their about.me widgets. We’ve been busy trying to track them all. Here are a few:

A whole lot more are shared at our Storify page.

We’ve seen more than 1700 downloads on WordPress.org in less than a week!

If you haven’t added it yet, head to WordPress.org to download for your self-hosted blog. Or, drag the WordPress.com widget from the Widgets page of your Appearance section. And keep sharing!

  1. love the @aboutdotme widget on my blog exetras.wordpress.com It’s an easy <5 click setup and now my quick bio and social icons are shining!

  2. Great idea that I would like to use if you can answer one question in the affirmative? Does your widget provide the very important “rel=author” tags that are so important for Google?

    I am planning on implementing a ‘bio box’ into my site that will do this, but I would rather use this widget to accomplish my goal, and be able to take advantage of all the other awesomeness it provides.

    We currently use rel=me instead of author. I’ve let the team know your feedback however!

  4. I love the idea of this, but there are a few apps I’d like to include that aren’t available. I have to list them as links, so they don’t show up in the widget. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that more are added soon!

    I have a wordpress site with a page for my blogs, can I download the widget on it or do I am to create a different page?

    Hi Claude!
    You can place the widget in a sidebar or footer at any page. We explain in detail how to add it in our support docs.
