If you are a blogger, I’d like to encourage you to make the most of your Gravatar. I sometimes get likes or comments on my posts from fellow bloggers, and when I click on the link all I get is a bit of a blurb about who they are, but no link to their blog. This is such a waste of networking opportunities – a waste of potential new eyeballs for your blog. And I’m not talking just about my own eyeballs – I get an email from WordPress when you interact with my posts, and WordPress go a bit further and link to your blog (if you blog on WP); but others who read my blog – if they see you here, they might click to check you out, and if you haven’t included a link then they can’t get any further.
All you need to do is edit your Gravatar and add a link to your blog. It will then show with a thumbnail, and those who are curious will be able to click through and read your posts. Go for it – I’m sure we all want more readers!
