Putting a face on your posts and comments
Have you noticed this image attached to your comments and on your profile page? That is your avatar. Pretty boring, right? Let’s take a moment to spruce it up a bit.
This blog, and thousands of others, use a system called Gravatar. The “Globally Recognized Avatar” is a single image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Setting one up is easy.
- Visit http://en.gravatar.com/
- Enter the email that use to log in, or comment (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- You will receive a confirmation email. Follow the instruction to upload your photo.
The next time you log in to your blog, or leave a comment, your photo will be automatically attached..
