Let’s Add Some Color to the Comments – Gravatar Style!

Hi everyone!  Since I am not hooked up through Blogger anymore, most comments come with a plain Jane (or John) gravatar.  A gravatar is a picture that appears next to your comment.

It’s super easy to do if you want a gravatar next to your name. 

1 – Visit the Gravatar site and create an account or login.

2- Upload a picture that you want to use as your gravatar.

3 – Be sure to enter your email address so that whenever you leave a comment and your email address in WordPress, your gravatar will show up!

It’s super easy and makes comment love more personal 🙂  Happy Sunday everyone!
