Note: The about.me widget will no longer be available after July 1, 2016, and we have removed it from the list of available widgets for your site. If you’ve already configured this widget on your site, we recommend that you remove it. For a similar alternative, check out the Gravatar Profile Widget.

The About.me widget allows you to pull in your About.me profile information and a small screenshot of it.

Here’s an example of what it looks like:
