Sort your Gravatar profile. It will make you look super cool.

June 12, 2014 in Digital Marketing

Have you ever commented on a blog, only to wonder why everyone else’s profile pic is really cool, and yours is just a grey square outline of someone else?

The secret is Gravatar.

Any time a website will look for a pic of you to use, gravatar is where they go to look for it. It’s like the big reference book in the sky for profile pictures.

All you have to do is go to Gravatar.com and sign up with your email address. If you have more than one email address that you regularly use, register them all.

You will be sent a confirmation email by Gravitar. You must click on the link they send you to confirm your account. Otherwise people would be signing up randomers without their knowledge.

Pick a unique picture that will work on any website. You only have to do this process the once, so make it stick. I don’t recommend you select a 3am selfie as the projection of your digital self. You may regret it down the line.
