What is Gravatar and Why You Should Start Using it Right Away

Images help a lot in branding. And when it comes to commenting in the blogging, I have already told you how it is best to make connections and display yourself.

There will still be many beginners, who have just started blogging, and they do not know how to add images to their names when they comment on a WordPress powered blog.

WordPress uses Gravatar.com to show images in Post Comments.

One more thing that we need as our online identity is our profile picture, which we can keep on with the help of Gravatar everywhere. The most important thing is that any reader will see your same picture on any blog (see your Gravatar) then you will be recognized as well.

How to add your profile picture to WordPress’s comment form?

Most of the WordPress’s Comment Boxes are Gravatar Ready. What you just have to do is go to Gravatar.com to signup. There you have to fill in your email address and associate your avatar with your email or say with your profile picture.

The steps to create Gravatar account are given below:

  • Create your Own Gravatar
  • If you already have a WordPress.com account, you can also signup from it or else enter your email and then choose a username and password for yourself.
  • Finally simply click on the signup button.
  • After that, you simply have to upload your image and set rating.

That’s all. You will easily create your Gravatar in this way.

You can make your online brand or identity by adding your image to Gravatar. Best of all, use the same image everywhere, such as on social media such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter etc.

Another great thing is that there are many 3rd party services that use Gravatar to get the user’s picture, which is associated with the image. So if you are starting anything online then Gravatar.com is a place where you must associate your email address with your picture. In this way, millions of users on the Internet will be able to identify you in a different way.
