Issues having pictures generate

So I’m doing the freeCodeCamp lesson, Build a Personal Portfolio Webpage. I’m trying to include a picture of me. Here is my code… (I’m hoping that by putting a space in-between the “<” and the img that it won’t interpret it as code and will instead just show you.)

< img src =“” alt=“pic of me” height=“400” width=“400”>

When I try to run the code it just shows a blue square with a white question mark. Thank you in advance for your help.

Imgur appears to be blocking you from hot linking to the image.

According to Imgur’s terms of service (shown below), they do not allow hot-linking:

Also, don’t use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network.

darn it, thank you, I will try to use another service, do you suggest anything specific?

I put the picture in tumblr and now it works perfectly. @RandellDawson thank you for your help.
