Recently, I found a really great blog and decided to leave a comment. However, when I submitted my response to the post my picture did not display.
Unfortunately, I did not know what to do to remedy this problem. So I did a little research and found the answer.
It’s actually really simple—all you need is a Gravatar.
A Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog and it’s critical when establishing a personal brand.
When you upload an image to Gravatar, you have to associate an Email ID with it.
So, whenever you post a comment on any site with the same Email ID, it will fetch your picture from Gravatar and display it.
Why Is Your Gravatar Important?
1. Enables readers to see who you are. It allows them to relate to you.
2. It portrays professionalism.
3. It draws people to read your comments.
4. It can arouse curiosity and lead readers to click on your profile and visit your website.
Again, it’s really easy, and necessary when trying to establish online relationships. So don’t wait—go to www.gravatar.com and get started!
