    I was modifying the design of my blog http://itswadesh.wordpress.com/
    I had to add an about me widget(with photograph) into the right side bar of it. But i could not find any such widget with wordpress.com
    So i implemented the authors grid widget to it and authorized Gravtar to show information about me.
    Can anyone suggest any wordpress widget or code so that i can add an about me side bar widget to my blog.

    Put you “About Me” on a Page – then put a link to the page with a Text Widget in the sidebar – you might need a Custom Menu to hide the page or put the page as a child of another page.

    The Gravatar Widget is perfect for this.

    @justjennifer – that takes all of the challenge out of it – easy – added one on a test site and only took a couple of minutes.

    thanks

    Worked great – I already have an “About” page on my main blog so I will just leave it there – slick solution

    thanx
