Everybody: You should add a link to your blog on your Gravatar profile

Stevehi mentioned this the other day… I have a feeling that a lot of people don’t know that they need to manually create a link to their blog on their Gravatar profile. If you ‘like’ a post but you haven’t created a link on your Gravatar, then there’s no way for that blogger (or anyone else) to find your blog.

So, this is how you do it: it’s possible that I’m complicating the process – but this works:

Go to your Reader page and hover over your little Gravatar image in the top right of the screen and click on ‘Settings‘. On the next page, click ‘Public Profile‘ on the right hand side and then click ‘Your Profile‘. From there you go to ‘My Account‘ in the top right and select ‘Edit My Profile‘. Phew. It’s from here that you can add a link to your blog under either/both of Verified Services or My Links.

Maybe I’ve got it wrong and bloggers are intentionally not linking to their blogs?

Anyway, just thought I’d throw that out there. Normal service will be resumed either later today or tomorrow… whenever I get round to writing something… it’s in my head, I just need to form the idea in to sentences… reasonably coherent sentences…
