This is a sample post demonstrating how you might introduce yourself on our site. Your “featured image” should be a photograph of you at work, set to 400 px wide. Your illustrated self-portrait should be an image added to the post (as shown below). 

Use the manual excerpt function to write a short one-sentence bio. You’ll find that in the settings to the right of the editing area in WordPress.
