I’m in the middle of thinking about how I can change the look and feel of my ‘Author box’ to make it look more attractive and look more like it was created by a web designer (cause right now it’s average at best)…
I decided to visit some of my favorite websites from around the web world to see how it’s supposed to be done.
FYI: Most of these images had to be sized down to fit the width of my blog (another thing I need to fix down the road), but you can see them in action by clicking on the image. Enjoy.
In conclusion, I’ve realized a list of similarities that most of these sites share:
(1) A way to differentiate the box from the rest of the site to make it pop whether it is outlined or a different color.
(2) Image (gravatar) of the author, usually on the left side.
(3) Title that reads “About Me” or “About the Author”
(4) Short description or bio
(5) One or two links: usually the Author’s portfolio and a way to contact them through social media (most common is twitter)
