I have been blogging for a few months on WordPress and I believe in learning by doing and that is why I like to experience new things on the platform and look at other blogs how they do things. I have noticed that many bloggers do not have a web page and only the standard avatar account.
This post is for everyone rookies as advanced users and therefor I want to start by explaining what Avatar is. An avatar is simply an image that represents you online which is a little picture that will be shown beside your name when you interact with web pages. This is a free service and it is included in every WordPress.com account. A Gravatar is a globally recognised avatar where you can create your profile.
However, getting a Gravatar doesn’t mean that you will also have a web page because this is something that you need to create yourself. I personally prefer to have a web page since it is easier for others to find my blog and visit it as well. The most of us who are involved in blogging want to be visible and that is where the web page comes in.
Everyone who has WordPress do also have a Gravatar but it is necessary to go into the Gravatar and edit it. I would like to walk you through the steps of how this is done.
When you enter your Gravatar from your WordPress page click on the picture on the top at the right then you will come to the picture below. Fill out all the information that is required. At your right you see everything that you can add on your Gravatar. You can add a lot there. Everything from instagram, Facebook etc, but I chose to only add my blog page because I have all the social media there.
Click on websites and you will have the opportunity to write your web page. After you have done that you should click on save. Then your web page will show automatically and be visible for everyone who enters your Gravatar. This will help others to find your blog when you just like their posts. If you don’t have this page on your Gravatar it is impossible to find your page by likes. So if you want to be visible you need to go through the steps that I showed you above.
This is how my Gravatar looks like when people enter my profile. If I don’t add a comment and only a like, people can still find my webpage because I have added my site on Gravatar. This was just an advice if you want to get more readers.
I have learned much since I started to blog here. I also try to find new ways to make my blog visible and webpages are the best way to do so. If you want more information please have a look at the link below.
I hope that you appreciated my tips and if you have any question do not hesitate to ask. I will happily answer you.
Take care! ♥
