Customizing: You need to customize this code given above so replace YOUR Image URL with the URL of your author image. To change the size if image in author box just change the values of height and width with your own values like as 150 (don't use px like as 150px with values). Change Python with your name and rest of text with your author bio. In above code we have also inserted a Read more link in the end of author bio which is linked to about us page so change our link with your blog's about us page where readers can read more about you and your blog. If you do not have a about us page then simply delete it.
