WordPress.com have added a great new widget which lets you easily add an about me box to the side of your WordPress.com blog.
The widget is called Gravatar Widget because it displays the users Gravatar image and puts it in the about box.
Many themes come with a standard About Me area which can be edited via the sidebar.php template however a widget is much more preferable as it allows you to switch between themes more easily (i.e. without having to hard code things again).
Here is what the configuration screen looks like:
This is a great little plugin which I’m sure many WordPress.com bloggers will use. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there is an equivalent for self-hosting WordPress.org users. The closest I found was the About Me plugin but that doesn’t offer the same functionality.
