Whenever I read – and Like – a blog post by a blogger I follow (or by a new blogger I have discovered), I tend to hover over the Gravatars of others who have Liked that same post. If I see a potential interesting photo blogger who I might want to follow, I click on their Gravatar.
This takes me to their Gravatar profile . Sometimes, I see other links listed on their profile that would take me to their blog post or their photo website. Most of the time, though, I see nothing else on that person’s Gravatar; no link of any kind. I now know that is because
They didn’t update their Gravatars
Just call me slow. I knew I had a Gravatar associated with my WordPress account, but I had no idea that it was actually a sort of separate entity that I needed to update in order for people to check me out whenever they click on it. I was clueless until this morning, when I clicked on another blogger’s Gravatar and noticed a separate link in the upper right corner of the screen to my own Gravatar (see the photo at the top of this post). I clicked on that link and saw the stuff I originally typed into my Gravatar eons ago when I joined up with WordPress. I also noticed that I, myself, had not added any links to my WordPress site nor my Facebook page. Yikes!
That little issue has been remedied.
Now, whenever I Like another blogger’s post, my Gravatar is there for others to see and click upon, which will hopefully lead those others to my WordPress site, my photography website, and my Facebook Page.
