How To Create A Gravatar For WordPress

by on 24/09/10 at 8:55 pm

wordpress_bleuAdding a Gravatar is a very simple procedure that for some reason the vast majority of bloggers and entrepreneurs are not doing.

First let’s start with what they are. When you see comments on a persons blog, on the left side of the comment there is a image.

Most often you will see a gray cartoon looking figure because the person making the post did not bother to set up a free account, upload a picture and make a Gravatar.

It is so very important to let people put a face to your name. It promotes trust and the feeling that they know you. When people feel you are a friend and can trust you they are far more likely to do business with you.

All you have to do is set up a free account, upload a picture of yourself and attach it to which ever email address you use when you are posting a comment.

This very simple trick can seriously boost your social media presence one hundred times more than it is and you only have to create the Gravatar once to make an impact on your personal brand.

As far as what type of image, stick with a close up. It may or may not make you a little uncomfortable yet it is necessary because the image itself is so small.

It was written in this article that all you have to do is set up a free account to create one yet you also could use a WordPress plug in or a piece of software to create the image and boost your social media base.

So go create your Gravatar today! It is easy, free and only takes a few minutes one time.

    Your point of view on the matter shows you must be a real pro here. Even considering the fact that this complex problem requires correspondingly broad approach, your way of thinking is one of the most integral among those I read on the web. I will link back to your article from mine. I think its necessary for more people to consider your ideas. Many thanks.

    I leave a response when I like a article on a site or I have
    something to contribute to the discussion. It is a result of
    the fire displayed in the article I browsed. And on this article How To Create A Gravatar For WordPress | RayJernukian.
    com. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought :
    -P I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be just me or do some of the responses come across as if they
    are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if
    you are posting at other social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list all of all your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter
    feed, or linkedin profile?

    Yes this is a WP site. Having a little HTML knowledge is defiantly helpful, however if you keep it simple you can move forward without knowing HTML.

    “Could it be just me or do some of the responses come across as if they
    are written by brain dead people?” sometimes yes, the bigger issue is spammers.
