We want to see you on MSrelief.com, no I mean we want to “SEE” you on MSrelief.com!

Why don’t you have a Gravatar, a globally recognized avatar? Perhaps you don’t want people to see your picture and didn’t realize you can have any image!

Or maybe you don’t know how to get one!

It is very easy to connect your picture to your comment (actually your email address)!


I love blogging! I see there is a very strong MS community online, many of you already have a Gravatar!

When I first started blogging I would see people who’s pictures were connected to their comments but I didn’t know how until Jen Lawlor taught me!

Simply watch the movie above or go to Gravatar.com and they’ll give you complete instructions!

I’d love it if you’d come back and leave a comment so I can see your new Gravatar!

  1. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website? My website is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!

  2. I wonder why there are some people online who don’t have a Gravatar. What could be the reason that at this point of time they still don’t have a Gravatar. There’s nothing wrong if they will have one, since it is so easy to get a Gravatar. It would only take them less than 5 minutes to get one.

  3. Hi it’s me, I am also visiting this website regularly, this web site is genuinely good and the visitors are genuinely sharing pleasant thoughts.

  4. Me I have a gravatar but I dont know when I comment in other site my picture dont comming up. but in other still ok..

    • Hi Alice, there might be a problem on your Gravatar. More often than not, the problem lies on the email add that you are using. If the email add that you used in your Gravatar is different from the email add that you used in commenting in this blog, your image will not appear. My suggestion is make sure that the email add you have in your Gravatar is the same to the email add that you are using to comment.

  5. These are in fact great ideas in concerning blogging. You have touched some nice points here. Any way keep up wrinting.

  6. Me I have a gravatar but I dont know when I comment in other site my picture dont coming up. but in other still ok..

    • Alice,
      If you have a Gravatar account you simply need to write the email address you chose for your Gravatar account when you leave a comment. Why don’t you come back to this post and leave another comment and let us see the image that you chose.

  7. Ok Linda I will try it, thanks for the advice.. I will check my email using if its wrong or not..

    I definitely have my Gravatar. Gravatar is really important especially when you are in blogging so that people may trust you by seeing your face. But still, I still wondering why there are people who have no gravatar is there a reason behind it?

    • Shameka,
      I agree~ being able to see your face is really important! I have friends that don’t feel safe putting their face anywhere online. I don’t understand why they won’t put some image like a flower or a pet, it just shows personality!

  9. Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    • Franklyn,
      I totally understand where you’re at! Time flies so quickly! It seems like just yesterday I was where you are! It all depends on what your purpose is in blogging, how much money you have and how much you want to spend! Tell me what your purpose in blogging is and I’ll know where to direct you!

  10. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let
    you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    • Benedict,
      Thanks so much for letting us know! I have to tell you that we are in the process of getting that fixed! Our load speed is incredibly slow and I’m confident it’s because of broken links and too many plugins!
      I wish it was done yesterday but unfortunately it will probably be another week!
      ps. personally I’m not having any problem in FireFox, except slow load speed…

  11. What a information of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable knowledge regarding unpredicted emotions.

    • Ricky,
      I have to allow this comment! I have never seen a comment so funny!!! You have used long, intelligent words combined in a sentence that really says nothing to me! This really brought a smile to my face and I think it will make others chuckle too!
