Have you ever noticed, while reading various blogs, that some people have their photo next to their blog comment, while others don’t?
This picture is known as a Gravatar – Globally Recognised Avatars.
Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog.
Creating a Gravatar is easier than you think. What you will need is a Gravatar account, added to an email that’s the same as the email account you use on your own self-hosted WordPress server.
Here’s how you do it:
1. Go to: www.gravatar.com
2. Create an account.
3. Link the e-mail address that you use on your WordPress blog/server to post/comment; then add your picture/logo/etc. to Gravatar. Hint: if you use multiple accounts on your own WordPress site or other sites that use Gravatar, you can simply add the e-mails for those accounts to display the same Gravatar image that you uploaded.
4. Your new Gravatar will appear once you add a comment to any blog post.
It’s that simple! You should now be able to post on blogs with your Gravatar happily displayed alongside your comments.
