First, if you’re not an experienced blogger, you may not even know what a Gravatar is. Straight from the Gravatar site, here’s their simple explanation:
An “avatar” is an image that represents you online—a little picture that appears next to your name when you interact with websites.
A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. You upload it and create your profile just once, and then when you participate in any Gravatar-enabled site, your Gravatar image will automatically follow you there.
If you don’t have a Gravatar, a default one is typically used, such as the image to the right. But why pass up on another opportunity to get your brand out, especially a free one. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Go to http://en.gravatar.com/ and click on the Create Your Own Gravatar button.
Step 2: Sign up for an account.
Step 3: Have your Gravatar image ready (you’ll be able to crop, etc.)
Step 4: Upload your image and select a rating (hopefully it’s “G”).
Step 5: Check your email for a confirmation email and follow instructions.
That’s it! From now on, any time you make a post on a site that supports Gravatars, your custom image will appear next to it.
