What’s a Gravatar? Well – it’s the image that appears next to your comments that you leave in the blogosphere.
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. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums, so why not on any site?
If you own your own site – this will help you brand your comments as you leave them in the blogging world. If you don’t have a site, you can still use this to express your personal brand – or show off pictures of your kids, cats, shoes – whatever you want! And it’s free!
It’ll change your comment icon from a generic blank icon to something personal and memorable.
So how do you get one? It’s simple:
- Go to Gravatar.com
- Register for an account
- Check your email for confirmation
- Select/upload your icon/logo/picture
- Within 5-10 minutes, any comments you leave moving forward will sync to the email address you registered and display your image
Note: This will work for any WordPress based sites (and others that just require your email address for comment). Sites on blogspot will still require you to use your Blogger or other online ID (such as your Google account)
