Ever wonder why your photo doesn’t appear next to your comments on some blogs? If you use Blogger and have an account, the photo shows up each time. But what about blogs powered by WordPress and other companies? It’s probably because you haven’t set up your gravatar yet.
What is a gravatar you ask?
A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites.
One easy way to set up your gravatar is to sign up for a free account at gravatar.com
This will take you less than a minute and then I’ll be able to see your gravatar in my comments section! Yeah!
Your photo will automatically appear on other people’s comments also. Here’s a sample from Hooked on Houses.
