I’ve received a number of emails asking me how to add an avatar pic to the comment when commenting on MakeUseOf.

See the screenshot below if you’re not sure what I mean.


So how do I get an avatar next to my comments ?

It’s very easy. Simply go to Gravatar, signup, and upload the pic that you want to use as your avatar.

Also make sure that the email address you use on your comment is the same one you use to sign up on Gravatar.



Next time you comment on MakeUseOf it will automatically add your avatar to the comment. And not only MakeUseOf, but also most other blogs too.

      There's no "list" as it would be impossible to compile. But a LOT of blogs have gravatars on their blog comments. It's well worth the effort to have a free gravatar account.
