In this WordPress Video Tutorial, I show you how to add a gravatar or profile pic for WordPress. A gravatar is really cool because your profile pic or whatever image or graphic you use will appear whenever you comment on someone else’s blog post or whenever you reply to comments on your own post. Not having a gravatar makes you look like an amateur and a newbie. Don’t be a newbie. Get a Gravatar!
Andy Bailey, the creator of CommentLuv, is even thinking of adding an option to the CommentLuv plugin which would allow the blog owner to reject all comments that do NOT have a gravatar associated with them. One of the reasons that Andy is thinking of blocking comments that do NOT have gravatars associated with them is because when Andy sifted through the comment spam on his blog, he found that over 90% of the comment spam was posted by people who did NOT have a gravatar. By the way, CommentLuv is a great way to get more people to comment on your blog posts!
