What is a Gravatar and Why You Should Use One

Monday, November 5th, 2012

What is a Gravatar

A gravatar is an image of you, one that you you choose, which will show up when you comment on blog posts or sign into your website. Gravatars help identify who you are and once you add your gravatar your name is usually highlighted to take a reader directly to your site. A gravatar can help people identify with you and/or your brand.

Example
