Introducing Gravatar – How to Add Image to Your Blog Comments

Gravatar – What Is It?

A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to webog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites.

gravatarHave you ever wondered how people have their image show up when they comment on their blog or other peoples’ blog?  If you want to make a name for yourself in this industry, you need to brand yourself effectively and ensure you make yourself visible. One of the most valuable ways of been recognised in order to achieve business success is simply by leaving your comments on other people’s blogs. The more people see your name on different blogs, the more they will be interested in learning about you. One thing that we all aspire for in our business is more traffic to our sites, so, imagine the consequences of regularly leaving good-quality comments on highly trafficked blogs……you would also be driving more traffic back to your own blog!

Now, one way of achieving visibility is by having a true reflecion of you next to your comments. Adding pictures of your company logo, your pets or some kind of landscape is a no! Let people see your face and be able to put a face to your name whenever they see or hear it. If you have ever wondered how people have their pictures next to their comments, then wonder no more because if you follow the easy steps that I am going to show you below, suddenly your face will start appearing everywhere and other bloggers will begin wondering who you are and what you do.

So, how do you add your image?

Step 1.

Head over to and create a free account. Ensure you use the same email address that you will be using when you leave comments. It is the email address that will trigger your gravatar.

*** PLEASE NOTE: If you are already registered with, you don’t need to create a new account with All you will need is your WordPress password to access your Gravatar account. ***

Step 2.

Click on the link sent to your e-mail address to activate and confirm your account.

Step 3.

Go to My Account and follow the instructions to add your image (REMEMBER: photogragh of you!).

Step 4.

Check and ensure that everything is confirmed and saved.

After adding your picture, gravatar will add your photograph to all the comments that you have previously left on different blogs without your gravatar, as long as you were using the same email address.

So, from now on everytime you submit a comment on a blog, your gravatar will be automatically included.

That is it…..pretty simple! Now, leave a comment below and watch your phoograph appear.
