The author box is an excellent opportunity to give your blog a personal touch. The reader can see who wrote the content and they can further connect with you if they like.

Here’s how to add the author box on WordPress:
- On your WordPress dashboard, click on
- Click on
Editbelow the author’s name.
- Fill in the names and biographical information.
- Add the profile picture.
- Open a recent blog post of yours and verify if the author box is appearing.
