How to Add an Image Next to your Comments (How to add a Gravatar)

How to add a Gravatar to your comments

Today I’m going to give you a quick tutorial on how to add a pretty picture of yourself (how to add a gravatar) next to all your comments on WordPress blogs! 

Since switching over to WordPress, from Blogger, I have missed seeing all of your smiling faces when I read my comments.  Now I just see a lot of patters and colors, like this.

It definitely makes for a colorful comment section but I would much rather see all of your beautiful faces. :)

So here’s what you need to do:

1. Head on over to

2. Click on the button that says “Get your Gravatar today”.

4. Once you receive your confirmation email follow the link to set up your Gravatar account and add a pretty picture of yourself.  It only takes a couple minutes and it won’t cost you a thing {other than a couple minutes of your time}. 

After you set up your account leave me a comment so I can see your pretty face instead of the colorful patterns I usually see!  I can’t wait to see your pictures, I’ve really missed seeing all of your smiling faces!!!

Thank you to Stephanie who taught me how to do this with this post.
