A Gravatar is an "avatar" image that follows you from site to site when you do things like blog or comment on blogs.
Creating a gravatar associated with all of your Wordpress comments is very important as it adds credibility and humanizes not just the comments you post on your website, but the comments that you post on others' websites. This leads to a better, more interactive and trustworthy discussion.
To create a gravatar, it is a very easy process. You simply go to Gravatar.com and set-up an account.
**Do know that you can only have one gravatar per email address, so if you want multiple gravatar accounts you will need to use unique email addresses that are not registered within the gravatar.com platform.
