Are You an Icon? How to set your blog comment icon.

In order to be memorable, to stand out from the crowd, you need to become an icon… and what better way to cement your icon status than by using a recognizable icon across all the social media sites you use?

Today’s video is all about how to set your blog comment icon, which is also known as your blog comment avatar.

Watch and see how easy it is to set yourself up as an icon, through your icon!

Your blog comment icon makes you recognizable!

Grab Your Gravatar

Head over to Gravatar and set up your free account. From there on in, you’ll be able to comment across the web on different blogs using your own icon.

This in turn will help people get to know you, and you’ll be well on your way to becoming an icon!

It will also come in handy when you want to change your blog comment icon… since you’ll just need to login to Gravatar and upload a new photo. The changes will be reflected across all the sites where you comment!

    Having a gravatar icon is so handy! Even if you already have one this is a good reminder to update your photo and web links to keep them current. Thanks :)

    I have been blogging for awhile now and I wish that I knew about the gravatar earlier so thanks for sharing it with people. In fact it not only helps people who read comments made but to me as a blog owner it shows that the person is real and not just some default icon.

    I recommend this simple yet complete article. Thanks again!
