I was asked a few weeks back how to get your picture to show up next to your comment on this blog. For example, if you look at yesterday’s post, you’ll see pictures for Karen Swim and myself, but no one else.
Doing this once will impact not just this blog, but other blogs also. When I commented on a TechCrunch post, I saw my picture come up automatically.
All you do is go to Gravatar.com (that is: globally recognized avatars), set up an account, put in your picture (this will be the one that shows up everywhere), and you are good to go!
It’s that simple, and will be recognized on blogs that tap into Gravatar. The logic behind this is based on the e-mail address you use for your Gravatar account, AND the e-mail address you use when you leave a comment… if they are the same, your image should show up. If you want to comment anonymously, don’t put your e-mail address.
Cool, eh? Head on over, put your picture up and then leave a comment, so I (we) can see what you look like
