#Blogmas2018 Ritu’s Blog Tips #3

Day 3 of blog tips for Blogmas!

My muse, my tea my workstation!

Make sure your Gravatar information is up to date.

Gravatar? What’s that?

It’s the information attached to the little photo icon that pops up next to any comments you make. If a reader hovers over it, they can find out your blog address, and if they click on it, there is a whole load of information that comes up, from your websites to profiles all over Social Media, so others can connect with you.

It’s important.

If someone fancies checking out your site, and the information is incomplete or incorrect, you could end up losing a prospective reader, or even follower… and you don’t want that!

    More good advice. I don’t think I’ve ever updated mine. WordPress tells me that people click on it, so I should give it some attention.

    🙂 I totally agree on updating the information that is attached to our Gravatar.

    Sometimes when people delete their old blog and start a new one and other people click on their Gravatar image, they are unable to find their blog.

    Splendid advice!
