Elevate your brand with a new, customizable About page

As a Medium creator, your About page is a place to introduce yourself and to contextualize your writing for your readers — especially new ones who are looking for reasons to click “follow.” Today, we’re introducing new tools to help you customize your About page and more effectively connect with your audience on Medium.

A new About page to introduce yourself to your audience on Medium

Personalize your page with images, text styling, and more

To help make your About page more expressive, we’ve increased the character limit and enabled many of the styling tools you’re already familiar with from the editor. For example, you can now use headings, text styling, and emojis to tell your story, just like you would when publishing a piece on Medium. You can also upload images. Get creative! Add anything from a picture of yourself, to your work, or even your signature for a stronger introduction.

Easily add images to your About page profile

Link to your other projects and initiatives

Give your audience more ways to follow your work. Using in-text links, you can promote email subscriptions if you have them enabled, or referral memberships if you’re a part of the Partner Program. You can also add links to send readers to your social profiles, books, podcast, or any other project.

Style and link text, just like you would when publishing a piece on Medium

How to start customizing:

  1. Click on your profile picture in the bottom left of your screen on the desktop.
  2. In the pop-up menu, click your profile picture.
  3. On your profile page, click “About,” then “Edit.”
