How To Get WordPress Gravatar For CommentsWritten by Simon Barker on October 28, 2008 · Filed under Blogging, How To, Internet
Have you noticed how some of the people who leave comments here on the Zath tech news blog have avatar image/pictures next to their comments, do you want one for yourself when commenting on this and other blogs?
All you need to do is head over to the Gravatar website and register your email address with them that you’ll be using to comment with and upload the picture that to represent your comments, all this can be done within a couple of minutes!
The image you use for your Gravatar can be an actual picture of you, a symbol, a cartoon version of yourself or anything else you want to be out there on the Internet.
If you have a website or a company, you may want to use your logo or part of it like I have done above and use it as a way of marketing yourself, your company or website – now whenever I leave a comment on a website that uses Gravatars, then the Zath’s blue ‘Z’ is left behind!
Having a visual representation can really help to immediately identify you and make you stand out from others, so why not head over to Gravatar now and give your comments a bit more personality?
