Step 3) You can sign in to Gravatar using your wordpress.com account if you already have one, but if you don’t have an existing account yet, you can create one. To create your own Gravatar, just click on the option “Need an account?” (if you chose to sign up using the Sign in button in the Gravatar’s homepage) or the option “Create a new one” (if you chose to sign up using the Get your Gravatar button).

Step 10) Rate your image. Choose a rating that reflects your avatar. You can choose between rated G, PG, R, and rated X. Remember that the usage of an X rated image will prevent you from using it on some sites.

Step 11) When you’re done uploading an image, you’ve got yourself a Gravatar! You can now start using it. From here on out, whenever you leave a comment on any WordPress blog or website, that picture will show up.
