    There's nothing specific in the theme to handle an About Me sidebar box. The easiest option would be to add the image and text markup to a Text widget via Appearance->Widgets.

    However, ask me nicely on the quirm.net theme support forum and I might be persuaded to add something suitable to the next version of the theme. :-)

  3. If your site uses widgets, you can simply add one called text and just write your short blurb in there.

    Thank you guys
    I am a total amateur,
    When I add a text widget I dn't seem able to add a picture?
    I want it to look a bit similar to this about me section

    You first need to upload the picture to your Media Library and copy the resulting image url.Then add it to image markup in your Text widget:

    <img src="add_the_image_url_here" width="add_the_image width_here" height="add_the_image_height_here" alt="" />
