Announcing Rich Author Profiles

Butter Updates

A common goal when launching your blog is to become a thought leader in your space. "Content is king" as the saying goes, but knowing who's behind the content is just as important. To help boost your personal branding on your blog posts, we're launching a major enhancement to your author profile today. Previously your profile consisted of primarily your first name, last name, and email address. Now you can also configure your job title, bio, profile image, and your social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn).

How to use

To take advantage of these new fields, simply go to your author profile and you'll see a full set of profile fields:


These fields are of course also returned via our API anywhere the author is returned. Per our docs, here's a sample response:

You can use them in any way you like so let your designer's imagination run wild. We're looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces in your new author profiles!

Make sure you receive the freshest Butter product updates.
