How to Create an About Us Page on WordPress

Hi, everyone.  Welcome to  In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to set up an About Us page.  And the reason people do this is to give their readers – their viewers – a little biography about themselves.  It could be
an About Me page or an About Us page if you’re working with other authors or you’re working at a company, and it’s to show your readers a little bit about who you are, what you have to offer.

And of course, it’s optional.  You don’t need to do this, but most people do.  And what you want to do first is create the actual page.  So by
doing this, you want to come to pages on your navigation menu.  And after you’ve opened up the submenu, you want to scroll down and click “Add New” because this is all we’re really doing.  We’re just adding a new page to our blog that happens to be an About Us page.

So go ahead and click that link, and it will bring you to this page where you add a new page.  And first, you have your title, so if you want it to be about you, you may want to write something like About Us or About Me so that your readers know when they click that link what they’re
getting.  And then here on your textbox is where you want to either upload pictures or insert your text.

And I’m going to copy and paste what I have, and you, of course, can change it to any way that you would like.  So you can bold it; you can
underline it; you can change the color. Insert a picture, a link, a video. However you want your About Us page to be set up is how you do it. And you could learn how to do all of this in our “How to Insert a Video” or “How to Insert a Media.”  You can learn this in all of our videos.

So for this, I’m just going to keep this text the way it is, and what I want to do next is publish it.  So I’m going to come over here to this blue
button, and I’m going to click “Publish.” And it may take a second, but we finally see that our page has been published.  And now we want to view it.  We want to see how it does officially look, so we’re going to click “View Page.”  And as we can see, everything that we just
added is here on our About Us page.

And you can… If you’re on your on your, say, front page – your homepage – and whenever you want to go back, you just continue to scroll your mouse over the link, and you can click it and you’re back on that page.

And this is how you set up an About Us or About Me page.  Thank you for watching.
