  1. Gravatar is a must, not only add a personal touch to your photo, but also provides you a unique identify which a name might fail to provide in a long run. Thanks for sharing the wholesome tutorial to create Gravatar and its importance.

  2. Agreed!! Not many people are aware about Gravatar. Though it’s a great way to tell other people who you’re by showing your personal image or your company logo. It also helps you to build more personal relations as people would know each other by face.

  3. I started using Gravatar about a year ago and it has been quite a help to me. I love how well it works. More people should start using it so we have a picture to everyone’s name.

      It is always better (I think) to see a face or familiar logo than a random or generic picture.

  4. Hi Chris, πŸ™‚ I like using Gravatar. Yes, its so nice if you upload pictures on your profile. Its more formal and its good when you’re communicating to the readers and website owner if you use your picture—its more personal.

    Thank you.

    All the best,

      Hi Joseph, I know what you mean, it does make blogging much more personal, a face or familiar image can really help foster community!

      Please note, it is Christopher not Chris!

  5. Very useful post Christopher. I would like to add that many bloggers are refusing to accept comments without gravatars. It is quick and simple to upload and certainly adds a more human touch when making comments on blogs.

  6. Most bloggers are using Gravatar for sure. Now my question is what should be the proper picture to put into it? Is it something about your business or your own pic. I’m not really that good looking so I chose not to put my own pic. I don’t want to distract my readers lol.

      Interesting point, I personally think a website/company logo or a picture of you is the best. Interesting VW avatar πŸ˜‰

      Really? Not all bloggers want to use Facebook for comments, also WordPress uses Gravatars for author bio pics too.

  7. Gravatar is underrated, I love having a personal photo up it makes for a more welcoming comment section to a blog. If you see friendly faces you will want to comment more!

      Hence why Technology Bloggers, as a community blog, uses Gravatar!

      As a community blog, we strongly encourage the use of them, however I have a personal belief that everyone should be able to comment, so we don’t stop people without them from commenting here Wade πŸ™‚
