Posting to the "About" page on my blog

  1. I can't figure out why my personal profile page won't "post" to the "About" page on my blog. I can't find anywhere "how to post something to the About page"
    A phone number would be most helpful, as I', extremely technical challenged.
    Thank you, Debby Lee
    Blog url: http://sweetinspirationals.wordpress.com/

  2. It's not meant to do that at all. The information in the "About you" section on this page > Users > My Profile appears on the gravatar site.
    http://en.gravatar.com/sweetinspirationals
    It can be copied and pasted onto your About page.

  3. First of all, thank you Timethief for getting back to me so quickly.

    I clicked on the gravatar/sweet inspirationals link your provided and nothing happened. All that appeared was a black circle with a line thru it. I have no idea what this means. Granted, I barely know how to copy and paste, but this didn't look right.

    Not sure what I should do now. I've been all over the wordpress website and couldn't find any button that stated "click here to post to the About" page" Is there a series of things I need to click on to get to that particular button?

    Been working on this for hours and getting more frustrated by the minute. I've got to get to work here soon so I'm gonna have to give it a break for now.

  4. Just edit your About page and copy and paste whatever you typed into this section "About You" on this page > Users > My Profile into your About page and click "update".

    Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/
    Instead I recommend that you ONLY create posts here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

  5. Hi again Timethief, thanks again for getting back to me so quickly. I'm sure this makes me sound like a complete technical idiot, but could you repost the last bit of info with maybe a little more clarity? I don't know what half those words mean. I did recognize the words Internet Explorer, but I'm on AOL. I don't think that should make any difference, but what do I know.
    Anyhow, I'm off to click on the links you provided to see if I can glean any info I can understand. Thanks again,

  6. Just start out with this please.

    1. Go here Dashboard > Users > My Profile
    and on that page in the "About Your section" copy what you tryped in there.

    2. Then go to here Dashboard > Pages > and hover over this page URL http://sweetinspirationals.wordpress.com/about/
    Click "edit"
    Paste the information you copied into it.

    3. Click the "Update" button in the publish box.

  7. Okay, (still working on this trying to figure it out and still getting frustrated!) I wrote down these instructions "verbatim" and did every thing "exactly" as it is written in the last post, and now everything on the blog home page is messed up! The banner on the home page used to say Sweet Romance and Inspirational Romance, now that has been jumbled with half my "about info" that was "supposed" to be published in the About page!
    Can somebody PLEASE PLEASE give me directions, in simple English, about how to post info to the About page!
    Thank you.

  8. Also, can somebody tell me how to het the Home Page looking like it did before I tried to add stuff to the About page.
    Thank you.
