A bio is a commonly occurring page or homepage section that provides a summary description about a person. Bio information can either be on a dedicated page or often on the site home page.


A good bio should be concise. 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.

IndieWeb Examples

on homepage

  • and a separate longer bio on a wiki page:


Aaron Parecki has a brief bio on his home page, and on the footer of every page, marked up with p-note inside his h-card.

Chris Coyier

Chris Coyier has a customizable bio on his homepage, ostensibly in part to make it easy for either himself or visitors to create a bio that suits their needs particularly if they're looking for text to put on another page or to use as an introduction for speaking engagements or other in-person introductions. The customizations provided by means of radio buttons include length (short, medium, long), style (1st person, 3rd person), and code (rendered, HTML, and Markdown).
