How To: Create A Gravatar

It was so nice to meet y’all last week!

But there was something missing in the comments. Hmmm…what was it?

I know! It was your smiling faces. Yep, the comments were full of those faceless WordPress “mystery man” avatars.

So…it’s time to create your webwide identity with your own personal Gravatar.

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. It identifies you and your posts on blogs, web forums and really, any site you visit. And creating your own personal Gravatar is super easy and takes just minutes.

Get your Gravatar now and never go faceless again.

    I’m a new reader here! Thanks for all the great tips. I’m giving my gravatar a test run. Hopefully this will work. Thanks again!

    Thank you for this! I try to comment people’s blogs as much as I can but never knew how to get the gravatar part! I use the same picture for twitter and my blog but it would be nice to use that same identity when I comment. I appreciate the info-I guess I could have researched it but this was easier and spurred me on to actually do it as I work through my ever expanding list of things to do!!
