I sometimes forget that you know a lot more about me than I know about you.  I mean, you know that I’m a hooker, that I had a possible nervous breakdown while sitting in my closet … you even know what kind of toilet paper I use.

I meet people all the time who know me from my blog and during our conversation it’s entirely possible they might bethinking “Hey.  I wonder how Karen’s yeast infection is doing.”

Well, did you ever think that it might be nice for me to look at YOU for once and think, “Hey.  I wonder how her itchy lady parts are doing.”.

Let’s make that happen today.  Not the yeast infection, (that’s a special spell I have reserved for people who park sideways and take up more than one parking spot at Ikea on a Saturday), but the recognizing you bit.

This is what 70% of you look like to me and everyone else who reads this blog.




Faceless blobs of air.  Who are you people?  I don’t know.  In my head and the heads of everyone else reading the comments on blogs you possibly looking something like this …




So what are those little pictures and why doesn’t your photo show up?

Those are called Avatars and they’re put there by something called Gravatar.  Which stands for Globally Recognized Avatar.  Almost all blogs and websites are Gravatar enabled which means they are all ready, willing and able for your picture.

All you have to do is go to the Gravatar website and upload your photo.  Then Gravatar basically attaches itself to you and whenever you comment on a blog, Gravatar follows you there and includes your photo.

How to get your photo to show up in blog comments.

  1.  Go to the Gravatar website.
  2. Sign up.
  3. Create your profile which includes uploading your photo.
  4. Done!  Now when you comment on any blog or website that is Gravatar enabled your photo will show up.   Pretty much every website has Gravatar enabled on it by the way.
  5. You can change your profile picture whenever you want by going back to the Gravatar website and uploading a new photo.


In the profile section of the Gravatar website you can fill out your name, where you’re from and a little bit about yourself.


Why would you do that?  Well there’s a little surprise to Gravatar that not everyone knows about. If you hover over someone’s photo on any blog comment if they’ve filled out their profile, that information pops up!  So you can tell the world a little bit about you and you can learn a little bit about your fellow commenters.

And don’t worry if you’re a little bit shy you can upload a photo of anything.  Your dog, your cat, your kid.  I prefer to see recent photos of the actual person but the choice is yours.

I’ve only used 3 different Avatars on this blog since starting it but I might switch it up soon.


O.K. now it’s time for you to try to do it yourself!

I’ll be here.  Waiting.  And itching.

To see your pictures. 😉

    FUN! (Oh, maybe I should’ve waited until I got my avatar…but I wanted to be the first to comment!)

  2. shawn says:

    I’m back! That was fun….and super easy! Thanks Karen! (p.s. I’m in love with your blog.)

  3. Pati Gulat says:

    Sooooooo…lemme see if this works…

  4. Pati Gulat says:

    My picture didn’t show up… :o((((

  5. Oh boy I’ve wanted to be one of the cool people for so long. Thanks Karen!

  6. Moe says:

    Wow Karen, how cool is that? I’ve always wanted to know how to do that but just never got around to finding out. Now I know. :o)
    I’m going to have fun with that. ;o)
    Thanks for the help.

  7. Moe says:

    Ok, gross, not much liking that one. I’ll have to fiddle with it when I have more time… thanks again.

  8. Deborah says:

    BWAHAHAHAHA! Laura Ingalls Indeed! 😀 Love, Love, LOVE the one of the chippy on the Fella’s head!! Heading over to Gravatar now (AGAIN), I did sign up, then promptly got busy and the 2 week period of the email activiation ended… let’s get ‘er done! (Then I will come back and post again) 🙂

  9. Ann says:

    Let’s see if it worked. If it did you will see a pic of me holding a 60lb squash out of our garden a few years ago. I have always thought this pic to be a bit “odd” and thus totally appropriate for your blog!

  10. marilyn says:

    omG half pint!well you are about the right size just not sure about the overbite and all that calico..

  11. Beckie says:

    tada! (I hope! =) )

  12. IrishJenn says:

    Okay, here goes…

  13. I’m thinking I might make my profile pic a mean and nasty candid of Nellie Olsen just to shake things up and confuse people. 🙂

  14. Susan says:

    It’s early morning…are you sure?

  15. Kristin says:

    I think mine is uploaded; here’s a test!

  16. Langela says:

    I love the chipmunk photos you have! I have now added an avatar thanks to your instructions. It is a photo of me after the kids get done with me each day.

  17. Shannon V. says:

    Thanks for the tute. I have always wondered how to do that.

  18. Karen, I went to the site and there was nothing there. It said that domain was available.

  19. Shirley says:

    Only you, Karen, would think to recycle a live chipmunk into a Mohawk haircut. Honestly, your ingenuity knows no bounds!
    P.S. You’re right — it was ridiculously easy to create my own avatar, even for a Luddite like me! I’m going to have a lot of fun with Google Images until the day somebody, somehow finally takes a good picture of me. I wish they’d hurry up though … at 65 I’m afraid I may already have peaked.

  20. Hattie says:

    testies testies 1,2,3???

  21. Ashley W says:

    Karen, I only discovered your super-blog a couple of weeks ago, but have been blissfully enthralled ever since. My photo, thanks to your ever helpful instruction, is of me and my Ma making my Grandma’s homemade donut recipe! And no, I will not share…ok maybe if you ask nicely. I did make your sweet potato fries the other night! yummy!

  22. Ruth says:

    I might as well play along although I had this down pat before now… just to show that I have nothing against change. And because the ocean in the background blends so nicely with ‘islander-ness’. 😀

  23. Liz says:

    Or maybe not…

  24. I’m in my way Karen. Thanks v

  25. jen says:

    look at how you’ve brought all of us into the tech world. 🙂

  26. I did it!!Not sure if it worked!

  27. Sherri says:

    Done! What a cool idea to share with us…thanks! I guess the proof is in the puddin’, as my granny used to say. I’ll check in tomorrow to see if this post is accompanied by my photo, which I shall title, “Forever 57”. It was taken three years ago when my age was like the title and I’m probably going to use it until I’m 80 or until I die because it’s the most flattering photo of me that I have. It’s sort of like those obituary notices where the dearly deceased is 84, but the photo they run with the notice was taken when s/he was in her/his mid-20s. If the dead can do it, so can I, daggummit!

  28. Jacqueline says:

    Very cool! Though my first thought was that you just wanted our photos in order to be able to identify and avoid stalkers…

  29. Shauna says:

    This is awesome, we can finally see everyone’s photos. We read each other’s comments as often as we read your blog, our little community is getting closer. Yep, that’s you Karen, bringing people together. All, hippy and commune-like. Soon we’ll be baking bread together and trading eggs from our chickens;)

  30. Tess says:

    Is this thing on? (tapping on the mike)…..

  31. Sarah A. says:

    Good tip! I always use the wrong email address, so it doesn’t show up. How about now?…

  32. Trish says:

    You are so full of useful information. Thanks for the tip!

  33. Trish says:

    Now if only I could follow instructions properly…

  34. Trish says:

    one more time, I swear I’m not stupid…

    • Karen says:

      Chippy!!!!! When did you learn to comment! And didn’t I just see you sitting in my birdfeeder??? When did the birdfeeder get wifi? ~ karen!

  35. Patti says:

    This is the most practical site on the internez. I love it!

  36. Amanda says:

    Its so awesome to see everyone!!!

  37. Ana says:

    That’s clever! Thanks for sharing!

  38. Patra says:

    Funny. It makes me want to get a decent picture of myself!

  39. Missnicoleo says:

    fun! now what if I want to comment anonononomously?

  40. Gayla T says:

    If Jaunty and cute is what you want, I’d better use the one with the round head and green dress. I think mine shows up already. Someone near and dear to me set mine up with a picture taken at midnight at a wedding dance. I was up since early that morning and my job was to keep track of the two year old who was not in the wedding. Her two older sisters and mama were in it so the little one was PO’d to the max. I look old and tired. They say the camera takes what it sees and I agree because I aged serveral years that day and I was too tired to move. I don’t think it’s fair that you get to be Laura. She was my friend first! You can be Mary and not have to do anything but sit around being the beautiful blind girl. You can even be Ma or Pa but I WANT TO BE LAURA!

  41. Nan Tee says:

    I just might be the only one that cannot figure it out. Maybe I’m typing in the wrong thing? Not really *that* computer literate, after all.

  42. Anne says:

    If you like bonnets you would like Wendy McClure’s book – The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie

  43. Anne says:

    Oops, perhaps I should not have picked a banana slug as my picture when posting a comment on an avant gardener’s site. Doh!

  44. Tracie says:

    That’s pretty awesome, thanks Karen!

  45. Sheri says:

    I’m so glad other people asked because I was dumbfounded as to why my pic wouldn’t show up. Yay readers. Not sure why I just wouldn’t ask. Now to click and see if I made it work! Sheri

    Ok I am late to the game on this but I want to test it out.

  67. Kat says:

    Well aren’t you just a bundle of info Karen! The hardest part was waiting to see if it worked!

      Oh and that is me Halloween costume last year I spent months putting Captain Jack together! Won contests all over town. Why would a 55 year old woman even want to dress up as Jack Sparrow you ask! Because I can, hahahaha!!!

  68. Kristi says:

    Thank you for helping with my Avatar.

  69. Ian says:

    Hey Thanks! Looks like I signed up for this a long time ago and totally forgot about it. I definitely need to get a better picture of myself up though!

  70. Jean in BC says:

    testing 1 2 3

  71. Joe says:

    That is so cool.

  72. Does this only work for wordpress blogs? If so, is there some other service for non-wordpress blogs? Thanks!

  73. Gina says:

    Been struggling with this… testing testing, hope it works! Not all blogs ask for your email address though… hmmmm

  74. Mindy says:

    Great post, but mine is still not working for some reason. I have downloaded my profile picture and have only one emai-address, dunno why it’s not working.:(At least in blogger it doesn’t show up, testing if it works here.:)

  75. Mindy says:

    So there must be a problem with blogger only. That’s interesting.ö

  76. Edith says:

    Hi Karen,

    Trying out Gravatar. Fingers crossed.


  77. Mike says:

    Resounding success?

  78. Michelle says:

    Hope this works!

  80. Jessica says:

    I was wondering how to do that! Thanks!

  82. Ei Con says:

    Let’s see if this works.

  83. Ei Con says:


  84. Helen says:

    I hope I amaze myself by doing this correctly! *fingers crossed*

  85. Helen Whaley says:

    Did I do it now? I thought I was smart – until today.

  86. Helen Whaley says:

    Ugh! The picture is showing up on the Gravatar site!

  87. Helen Whaley says:

    Is it because it’s a PG image, not G rated? It’s not a dirty picture, honest!

  88. Helen Whaley says:


  89. Liz says:

    Success!! Welcome to the 21st century, Liz.

  90. My picture never shows up…I dont know what i am doing wrong?

  91. Sam says:

    Great, thanks for the support. Hopefully this works!

  93. Brandy Ballard says:

    Woohoo!!! It’s time to partay!!!

  94. Paula says:

    I followed your instructions about Avatars a long time ago, so thanks to you, I was no longer a faceless blob of air 🙂

  95. Marlene says:

    Heeey – this is an old post! I want a new post, gimme, gimme, gimme.
    PS: Hope the cream worked (for the itching) 🙂

    From a happy faceless blob of air.
    (Saves me from explaining my scary self to the unsuspecting.)

    • Karen says:

      No, lol. It’s not an old post. It’s an old topic that needed to be revisited. 🙂 So I rewrote it entirely and republished it. That’s why you see older comments. I do that the odd time with posts that are good topics but haven’t been seen by the majority of my readers. ~ karen!

  96. Gayle'' says:

    Fun! Thanks, Karen. Say “cheese” everyone!

  97. Cynthia says:

    But what if we join weird forums that talk about stuff we don’t want anyone to know about, will out photo show up?…and what if our a**hole ex-husband does a photo drop google search on us and finds all the places on the information superhighway where we love to talk to other weirdos? Nice weirdo’s not a##hole ones like him.

    Am I the only one who is paranoid? Surely not. Not highly puter savvy so tell me if I am fussing over nothing. I can be a silly sausage as well as a weirdo cyberworld lurker.

    • MaggieB says:

      No, actually I feel that way too. Thats usually why I never put up photos of myself. And do nice weird things like changing my comment name for different forums. I only comment on three so not so hard to remember. Uuuccckkkk!

      • Why are you joining weird forums and talking about stuff you don’t want anyone to know about in the first place?

        • MaggieB says:

          Because when you realise that you are not dysfunctional and that when you find a group of people that “speak” to you you are so grateful that you may not always use the right words, because you had lost the ability to see the fun and weirdness of life and then being able to express yourself in a safe place. And it’s not about anyone its about a particular someone. And that of course is just my opinion for myself. Heaviness over. Eggnog and glühwein all around. Cheers!

          • Karen says:

            I drank almost an entire carton of Eggnog this week. Not the little box. The big box, lol. ~ karen!

            • LOL, you are my kind of people and you are very funny. Friends have often described me as either weird or wild and when asked, I often describe myself as weird, wild and wonderful. I threw in the wonderful part myself. I also love alliteration. °J°

    • Karen says:

      Yes, your photo will show up everywhere. So in your case you can just leave your photo blank. I don’t think you have anything to worry about but no sense sending you into fitful worry. 😉 ~ karen!

  98. Jean in BC says:

    Thanks 🙂 I did this before when you had mentioned it a few years back. Should update my photo though.

  99. Cred says:

    Hi! My name is actually Cindy. How do you do?

  100. Bek says:

    Hey. Nice post.

  101. Melissa says:

    How true that we know WAYYY more about you than you know about us….thanks for sharing so much about yourself and being so honest!

    Just ‘itching’ to see how this avatar thing works….

  102. Amanda says:

    well now…that’s cool

  103. MaggieB says:

    Actually, I’d really like one of your fancy dancy super dooper portraits wot you put on up earlier in the post. Do you do commissions? Alternutively, (bow to Chippie) how do you do that?

  104. Kirsten says:

    I think I did it correctly? We will see? They don’t use our info to send us pesky emails or try to sell things to us do they?

    • Karen says:

      Nope. No emails from Gravatar. It’s literally just a global avatar site. So everyone you see who has a photo showing up on a blog is doing it through Gravatar. It’s the sole purpose of the site. ~ karen!

  105. Maria says:

    Learn something new every day over at Karen’s place. I think I’m all gravitar-ed up.

  106. Lillian Logan says:

    Sweet–now who won the Lee Valley gift card????

  107. Elissa Rioux says:

    Hi Karen,
    It’s amazing how much I don’t know how to do on the computer. Thanks for taking that list down a notch.

    I live my small farm fantasy thru you. Thanks for the fun blog that I look forward to getting and the smiles you give me ?

  108. Elissa Rioux says:

    Gee,I even forgot to press “activate”. Hope the photo is there now!

    • Karen says:

      Still no photo Elissa. Keep trying. 🙂 Make sure your email address matches here and on Gravatar and that your photo did indeed upload to Gravatar. ~ karen!

    Done! Thank you for reminding me where to change that outdated picture I had!

  119. Kimbydee says:

    I think I did it! Thanks for reposting this. Don’t know why I didn’t do it the first time around!

    I did it!!! (I think…)

    Thanks Karen!

    That’s my child, not me. If that were me, I’d have to be really talented to do this at 3-1/2!

  122. Elaine says:

    Thanks for the instructions, Karen! You always teach us SO much about anything and everything under the sun! Can I use a photo of Liz Taylor when she was in her prime? lol!

  123. Magali says:

    Great idea to encourage this seeing as how important the comment section on your blog is! It’s a lot nicer to scroll through even for us readers so it must be really nice for you. I jumped on the gravatar wagon 🙂

  124. Karin in NC says:

    So curious to see if this worked!

  125. Jackie says:

    Very east tutorial KAr

  126. Mindy says:

    Are you trying to tell me that my twelve year old honeymoon photo will no longer suffice for proper ID?
    I waver between wanting to choose something wildly inappropriate, and not wanting people to judge me. 😉

  127. Trisha says:

    The only reason I have a picture is because many years ago you encouraged us to do this. I have years of picture comments to thank you for!

    • Karen says:

      Now that I see your picture, I want you to get rid of it. I feel inadequate, lol. Great shot! ~ karen

    I went to the site, came back here, posted a comment, and it didn’t show up! Let’s see if this one does.

  129. Sandi Remedios says:

    Thanks for the info Karen, hopefully this works.

    Hahaha, love all of the comments. I’m in too…

  133. Alice says:

    All done Karen – Thanks !

  134. Jennie Lee says:

    Sorry. I give up. I’ve got an account with WordPress now, which I have no idea how to use, but could not figure out how to use a photo from my computer.

    • Lois Baron says:

      At the moment all WordPress does for me is give me another password to forget. It’s very stressful for me to be an ambitious, lazy woman.

      • Jennie Lee says:

        I have an avatar that shows up when I’m on Facebook, and a different one that shows up when I’m on Pinterest or Daily Kos. But since I’m not adept with computer-stuff, I have no idea why one doesn’t show up ALL the time.

  135. Paula F. says:

    I did this awhile back then promptly forgot which of my multiple email addresses I used…

    But I wrote it down this time! 🙂

  136. Ta da! (this better work)

  137. ronda says:

    hmmmmm. i rather like the pic you gave me! how can i add THAT as my avatar??

  138. TucsonPatty says:

    Okay, I did it! Let’s see if it worked! I’ll try to find a newer portrait to use, this is from 1962 or so. I look very prissy, probably because I was trying to be the best behaved and sit still for my aunt to take the photo of the 13 of us!

  139. West Coast Nan says:

    Look at all the pretty people, my aren’t we a lovely lot!
    Thanks Karen, you do make life easier…

  140. Eileen says:

    well…let’s see….

  141. Kathy says:

    Ok….I will go to gravitar since you asked, nicely, I might add. I’m usually wary of complying with your requests….I mean, that one word game you suggested cost me about five bucks and endless hours of time before it occurred to me you’d never know if I stopped playing….

    But really, I wanted to let you know my Christmas gift creating and purchasing is done!!! Everything gets delivered on Thanksgiving as that is the main gathering spot for the clan of thirty kids and adults……

    Now, aren’t you proud of me? In December? I will give the house the scent of cinnamon and baking cookies to give away hither and yon, and will sew more garb for the Indian wedding coming up in the new year!!! Now that will be a gift for me….time at the sewing machine!! Love it.

    • Karen says:

      I’m very proud. Good job! I think you’re doing better than me actually, lol. And wait! What game did I make you buy, lol?

      • KATHLEEN H says:

        Four Pictures One Word

        And I think I totaled, oh, 400 games before I realized that I did have a life. A couple of organizations to run. Garden to tend. Agency to Chair……and I put it into the cloud. I don’t know if you ever can really get totally rid of your obsessions,, I mean, apps. And it was the only free app I actually broke down and bought coins to get me a few more hints. I think it cost me close to 6 dollars (US)

      • Shanandrala says:

        As an chicken lady I cannot believe you have not run into a Pysanka (singular pysanky) or two in your past!! Pysanky (or Pysanki or Pisanki) are Ukrainian Easter Eggs. I am a novice compared to many, or at least my eggs look that way although I’ve been making them for years and years. You see breakfast when your chickens gift you with eggs. I see breakfast and a blank slate to decorate. I tried to attach an image, but in case that hasn’t worked feel free to check out my instagram account, where I post many pictures of Pysanky (and cats and food).

          Oh!!!!!! Those!!!!!! I love those!!!!! I quickly looked at your Instagram account and your eggs look pretty elaborate to me. Uch. Yet another thing I’d love to learn how to do! I’m gonna need to live to about 350 to get everything done I want to do, lol. ~ karen!

          • Shanandrala says:

            Thank you – “those” are my fun/crafty thing. So many others I’d like to try. Maybe one of these days! P.S. I love your blog. You have a way of turning every topic into an interesting and entertaining one. I’ve laughed and cried along with you over the years – I feel super geekily (that’s a word, right?) that you took the time to look at my eggs and comment back. Happy Holidays to you!

    I loaded one eons ago. It’s a picture of my grandmother who I was named after, standing beside her barn. Not sure if it shows up.

  152. savannah says:

    I thought I had an avatar already!

  153. Mary Edmondson says:

    Changed my photo to a better one that’s only two years old. We have to use the ones that make us look good, right? Now 77 but it’s still my look. Close ups don’t ignore the obvious signs of age, however.

  154. Sandra says:

    Okay, I did it 🙂

  155. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    You have seen my picture for years…or rather my cats picture…maybe I could put up another cat…maybe…..I……could…..maybe….I…will…maybe…

  156. Sabina says:

    Here I am! This is one of my favorite pics from this summer at the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, NY. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I’m thankful for this blog, among just a few other things, lol!

  157. Marlene Eastman says:

    Test test …. not too sure if I did this right ?

  158. MaryJo says:

    Funny that you should write about Gravatars, I just got my own a couple of days ago. I had never heard of them before but I’m in the process of setting up my own food blog about baking and was told to make a gravatar for myself.
    So I hope it works. =0)

  159. Centi says:

    I’m not sure… did it work?

  160. Gilly Bean says:

    That’s it? I did it? Cool!!

  161. JJ from Cali says:

    Must admit I was a little hesitant. There’s a reason I’m not on FB and the like… Darn you, Karen, for ruining all us lurkers!

    (And, now I’m wondering if my Gravatar’s going to show up on my husband’s posts since we share an email.)

  162. Julie says:

    Did it work? Am I taking a selfie with a goat?

  163. Julie says:

    Okay…one more time…

    • Karen says:

      I’m not sure what it is you’re doing wrong Julie. Really the only thing you have to make sure of is that your email address that you use here on The Art of Doing Stuff is the same as the one you use when you register on Gravatar. ~ karen!

  164. Aysha says:

    Very cool! Thanks for the info.

  165. Eve says:

    Here’s my face …the one on the left.

  166. Karin Sorensen says:

    ok, here goes. let’s see if i did this right.

    again….. thanks Karen, i never knew how to do this. now i do.


  167. Chris says:

    I did it! Thanks. Always nice to learn something new.

  168. Birgit says:

    So, this is me and lovely Abigail. Just in case you were wondering …. ??

    • Karen says:

      I wouldn’t have even noticed Abigail if you hadn’t pointed her out! Great pic. Snakes don’t bother me. I was covered from neck to waist in them once and it was very cool. Spiders on the other hand? No. I’d have to ban your picture if there was a spider on your shoulder. ~ karen!

  169. SusanKate says:

    That was fun!

  170. Lauren says:

    Just want to see if I have already done this

  171. Robin Willoughby says:

    Here I am! Here I am! <<>>

  172. Maureen says:

    Muahaha, won’t help you, lol. You get Mojo’s doge face, instead 🙂

  173. Stephbo says:

    I feel like one of the cool kids now!

  174. Thank you so much for this!! It’s finally working OMG.

  175. Dana Hunter says:

    Thanks Karen! I subscribed to your blog immediately after reading only one. You have a great sense of humor and humility which is why I love reading about the stuff you do. It gives me hope. Like maybe I can do stuff too.

  176. tcver says:

    Thanks….Now I have to comment to see if mine works 🙂

  177. NoWestern says:

    I’m in. Thanks!

  178. norwesterngirl says:

    I’m in. Many thanks!

  179. Thanks, Karen. It was useful.

  180. Courtney says:

    Hi, I have done/updated it several times and it never seems to show my picture 🙁 help!!!

  181. Courtney says:

    Hi, I have done/updated it several times and it never seems to show my picture 🙁 help!!! OOKKK so why does it work when I post on your haha I swear it doesn’t normally

    • Karen says:

      LOL. I’m not sure why Courtney. It could be because the other sites don’t have Gravatar installed? Most do though … ~ karen!

  182. Kimi says:

    I’m testing this out…thanks for the tutorial! 🙂
