Hello all..

I want to create an About Me Section in in my site’s sidebar. I’ve seen websites that have their about me section in the side bar and I like the look of it. How can I do this? Can anyone please advice?

1.Open your WordPress post editor , and upload your image. Then go to the HTML tab, and hit enter to make a space right above your image. Then, write your message there, and add the text you want.
2.Style Your Message. Go back to the Visual Tab and style your text.
3.Place Your Work in the Sidebar
In your HTML tab, copy everything you created. Then go to Appearance-> Widgets tab, and then drag a blank Text widget to the sidebar and paste in your code and  Save

This can be done very simply.

Almost ALL sidebar elements in WordPress are "widgets" or plugins.

Right from your Wordpress Dashboard under the "plugins" tab, do a search for "About Me Widget"

Once you have installed it (again right from within the dashboard), you can go to the "Widgets" tab and drag the widget into the sidebar, placing it where you want it to appear.
