"About" is a commonly occurring page or section on a site that provides an introduction, overview, or summary of the site. On a personal site, this would be usually be in the form of an expanded h-card about the person. About information can either be on a dedicated page, on every page (e.g. in a footer), or often on the site home page.
The key part of the About is the
p-note of the
h-card, which attempts to introduce the site visitor to the person in a simple and plain manner.
A good About
p-note should be brief. There is always the opportunity to expand later. This is not a resume (that's what h-resume is for). This is to introduce people to the author and owner of the site.

I study mathematical properties of black holes and their effects on other things in the Universe. I spend my spare time on photography and, sometimes, painting. I write short stories, and haikus on occasion. I am also excited by the wonderful ideas in web design, and play around with the them on this site."
There is a minimal h-card with photo and name in the footer of the site on all pages that links to the full one using
