There are endless possibilities to makes your Blogger blog look like a WordPress blog. So to make that note true, today I am going to teach you how to add author info widget, below every blog post.

Updated script with author image inside the widget

author info widget for blogger

Step 1: Login to your Blogger dashboard and navigate to Layout > Edit HTML and check the box of expand widget templates. Now search for the codeĀ  ]]></b:skin> once you find it, replace the code with the below code

.author_info {
	float: left;
	width: 573px;
	padding: 10px;
	border: 1px solid #ccc;
	margin-bottom: 15px;
	margin-top: 15px;
	background: #eee;
}
.author_info h3 {
	margin-bottom: 10px;
}
.author_photo {
	float: right;
	margin: 0 0 0 10px;
}
.author_photo img {
	border: 1px solid #666;
}
]]></b:skin>

Step 2: Now we are going to add the div part of the author info widget. To do that search for the code <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'> and paste the below code after <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div class='author_info'>
<div class='author_photo'>
<img alt='author' src='http://i50.tinypic.com/iw7lec.jpg'/></div>
                    <h3>This post was written by:</h3>
