The website URL field is required, but there are lots of valid options for this field. Here are a few of the alternatives that we suggest if you don't have a website.

Using social networks?

If you're active on a social media site or have a blog, you can use your profile URL or blog URL here. Examples include:

  • Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterusername
  • Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/yourprofileorpageusername
  • LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/yourlinkedinprofilename
  • Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/username

Feel free to add another social networking profile if you're active on a different site.

Have a blog?

If you have a WordPress, Blogger, or Tumblr account (or another blogging service), you can link to your blog. For example: http://thenameofyourblog.wordpress.com or http://yourblogname.blogspot.com

Create a personal page

Some services offer a quick personal landing page that functions like an online business card. You can quickly create a personal page with a service like About.me or Flavors.me.

Got the creative bug?

If you want your own website but aren't a designer, Squarespace and Virb are website publishing tools that empower everyone to be their own web designer.
