Creating Your Profile on Otola

#profile #otolaprofile


Creating your profile on Otola can give your readers a chance to get to know you better by highlighting who you are, what you do, and what you want people to know. You can increase your web presence with a custom url making it easier to share with anyone, and you get to determine what it is you want to post or feature on your profile.


Plus, your profile groups all of the articles or stories you’ve written together on one page, so your followers get immediate access to anything else you’ve written.

How cool is that?


Of course, you can also opt to keep your profile Private.

I’ll detail the visibility differences for both options:



Public Profile

The following pages are public and can be viewed by any Otola visitor:

  • Profile

  • Blog Posts

  • Blog Comments

  • Blog Likes

Private Profile

Some pages are private, meaning that each member can view their own pages, but other members do not have access to the following:

  • My Drafts

  • My Account

  • Notifications

  • Settings
