Add an Image to Your Blog Comments

blog comments

Today’s blog tip is as easy as it gets- we are going to show you How to Add an Image to Your Blog Comments.

One of the only things I miss about having a blog on Blogger instead of WordPress is that I don’t get to see many of your profile pictures when you make comments. Instead of seeing this:

blog comments 2(Hi Amy!)

I see a lot of these:

blog comments 1(Hi Tauni!)

Seeing your faces helps me recognize you and I feel like I know you a little better. Plus it isn’t as boring as the generic image that comes standard! So let me tell you how to add an image next to your comment on every WordPress blog you comment on from now until forever.

All you need to do is create a Gravatar account and add a picture.You just do it one time, it takes less than a minute, it is FREE and it is SO easy!

So will you all do me a favor and sometime today go set up a Gravatar account and then leave me a comment so I can see you? I want to see your face. That is all.

Thanks friends!

  1. LOL! That was a bit of a fun surprise as I hopped on over here this morning! Great idea to share how easy it is to make a Gravatar! I love seeing who my readers are too. We better get on Tauni to get her Gravatar up! Your new site looks so good.

  2. Really glad to see you over on WordPress, Gravatar is one of the best reasons. You should leverage some other plugins too like “ReplyMe” that emails users when someone replies to their comments. I also recommend you join the CommentLuv plugin which showcases recent blog posts and you will get lots of other bloggers commenting that way.

    Congrats on winning the Hawaii vacation from SocialSpark by the way.

  3. Btw, it was funny to see the winner was another blogger from Arizona, it’s a small world.

  4. I just added mine! I was just thinking today about how bummed I was that I don’t get to see people’s pictures now that I am on wordpress….and here is your post! Perfect timing :)

  5. I would love this. Call me laz that I do not want to take the card out of my camera every time I want a picture!

  6. Let’s see if this works!!
