Ditch The Default Avatar

If you’re using WordPress or you regularly comment on other blogs you’ll have noticed that your image or avatar will be the default image set on the blog you are interacting with.

That image normally looks like this but there is a way to have your Avatar added to all blogs that you post too. You could always add a plugin on your site but that won’t solve the issue of having the default image on blogs that you comment on.

What you need is an avatar that follows you around the internet either on your own site or when posting on other sites.

All you need is a Gravatar account and your chosen avatar will follow you around the internet waiting for you to post a blog or comment. The avatar that’s shown is related to the email that is used either in the user account of your blog or the email you use on the blog comments.

Summary

Before you start your career as a world famous blogger get yourself an account on Gravatar so we can all see what you look like.
