Let me start this one with a question.
Once you finish reading an interesting article online, what is it that you do next?
Look for another one? Re-read it to see if you have missed something? Or do you look for other articles written by the same author? Well, at least I do!
Readers generally like to connect with the authors of posts they find interesting. However, many bloggers miss out on utilizing such essential elements of their blog.
You should use the after-post area for getting more subscribers to the brand or your social profiles. Even Harsh recommends adding an author box. It helps in branding and embeds trust in readers.
Including an author box in your blog posts makes sure that your visitors can find more information about the author on the same page. Contrary to popular belief, adding an author box after a post is very simple. If WordPress powers your website, there are some excellent plugins which let you add author widgets in just a few minutes.

In today’s post, I will introduce you to five WordPress author box plugins.
By using these plugins, you will be able to display author information, links to their social media profiles and recent articles.
Let us take a look.
1. Simple Author Box
If you are looking for a fully responsive author box plugin for your website, Simple Author Box could be the one for you. This lightweight plugin will add an attractive author box at the end of your blog posts. The author box displays the author name, description, and links to various social media accounts.
Once the plugin is activated, you can control its options from Settings > Simple Author Box page. While the plugin will display the author box in the posts by default, you can also place the box in other places by enabling the feature in the settings section.
As the plugin lets you choose the font family, size and color, you can easily customize the author box to match your existing design. It is also possible to hide the author box if the author description is empty. Last but not least, the plugin supports RTL languages too.
