You can add your custom dashboard widget by adding the following code block in the function file of your active theme.

Note: Before adding the code block, take a backup of your function file.

add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'my_custom_dashboard_widgets');
function my_custom_dashboard_widgets() {
	global $wp_meta_boxes;
	wp_add_dashboard_widget('custom_help_widget', 'Theme Support', 'custom_dashboard_help');
function custom_dashboard_help() {
	echo 'Welcome to our Blog For WordPress Tutorials visit: Ask You Now'; 
This code can be very helpful when creating custom themes for clients.
