Ever wondered why some people have their picture displayed next to a comment… and yours doesn’t? It’s because they created a Globally Recognized Avatar – Gravatar for short.
Gravatars are images connected to a specific email address. You can quickly and easily get your own at https://en.gravatar.com/ which is run by the same group who provide the free blogging platform WordPress.com.
Start by choosing a square image of at least 250 pixels. The image in this post is 250 x 250 pixels for comparison.
Next you’ll need to create a free account at gravatar.com/ and then approve the conformation email you will be sent.
Upload your image and you’ll start seeing your awesome image everywhere you post a comment
