Step 5. Add content to About page

Start by selecting a photo to show on this page, it can be a photo of you or why not an image you think represents you. If you don't want to have a photo at all you can just leave the field empty. Then add an appropriate heading, "About me" for example or why not use your name as heading. Now you just need to add the text! The image to the right shows you how the page looks in the album (using Turtle skin and style White).

If you want to divide your text into paragraphs you can do that by using the html tag <br/> , add one for each line break.
