How To Add A Picture (Gravatar) To Your Blog Comments

If a picture is worth a thousand words… Why not always make sure you leave your beautiful face on every blog comment you make?

Leaving comments on other people’s blogs is a great way to get more industry wide exposure and to become more ‘recognizable’ in the community.  You can also drive quite a bit of traffic back to your site if you leave intelligent and thoughtful comments on highly trafficked blogs…

But if you don’t include your picture next to your comment, you probably won’t be recognized very much at all.  If you want to make the MOST out of your blog comments and become more well-known in the blog communities, you’ve gotta include your picture. It’ll help people identify you more easily and recognize you throughout the different blog sites you visit.

It’s very simple and easy to do… Just click ‘Play’ on the video below and I’ll walk you through the process:

So, right now… Head over to and sign up for a free account.  Once you do, leave me a comment down below and let me know what a difference it made!  I’d love to see as many bright shining faces in the comment box as possible!

So, Katie, Thank you very much. I have followed your instructions and obtained a gravatar. I am so pleased with this training. I came to it from a training that Amanda-Marie had on a strategy for getting targeted traffic to your blog. She referenced your helpful information regarding gravatars. What a terrific community! Thanks, Joy

Hello Katie,

I really enjoyed your presentation at the “No Excuses Summit” in Las Vegas and considered it to be Top Knotch and the Best of the Show. Jonathan Budd was right in there too but your Delivery was Silky Smooth with the right blend of Value, Encouragement, Honesty and Integrity. “Nobody Does it Better”

Warm Regards, Bill Brabant

I think this is a great tutorial. I’ve had a gravatar for a while and I’ve never looked back since. The only gravatars that I see nowadays are smiling pics. I love it.

Bob White October 5, 2010 at 4:14 am

Hi Katie :) I received a comment on my blog because I posted a “ravatar size matters” warning when using the avatar in WordPress (not mentioned anywhere else) – first, shrink your picture to 125 X 125 pixels – THEN create the avatar and finally use that avatar everywhere including blog post comments

thank you Katie for all you do to enlighten us bloggers – be blessed !


Aesha Christian October 14, 2010 at 12:46 am

Great post Kaite! I guess it was time for me to get a gravatar, because this is the second time in a week that I heard someone talk about the benefits of having one :)
