Creating Your Custom Gravatar

Five Simple Steps to Creating a Gravatar

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.

gravatar-defaultIf 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.
