How to Install and Set Simple Author Box WordPress Plugin?

An author or a writer is engaged in creating literary works. On the surface, there is hardly any difference, but ‘Author’ has a more professional ring than writer. According to Google, a writer writes about other people’s ideas and thoughts, whereas an author is the composer of a plot, idea, and content. You turn into an author when your book gets published, or else you remain a writer.

Author vs. writer

In today’s digital era, self-publishing has increased, and basically everyone has turned into authors instead of writers. The digital revolution has empowered people to communicate with worldwide audiences.

You run a blog or write to earn money, so are you an author or a writer?

Why word authority is crucial?

An author is the creator of ideas, while the writer is an extended right hand of the author. The writer listens to what the author speaks. You can say an author empowers his/her expression, and their written words are more powerful.

Generally, the blogs that solve issues or offer solutions to common issues are useful or helpful tips. People always listen to suggestions and advice that come from personal experiences. In this situation, the word or expressions from the author benefits your customer and bottom line.

What’s an author’s box?

It is a box, which offers some bio about the blog post writer along with his/her image. The author’s professional details lend content credibility. The photo of the author gives the post a ‘face’. When people read the blog, they can feel connected to a real person. You can use a WordPress Author Box plugin or manually add the Author’s Bio to your blog. There are several plugins to select from.
