We all have Gravatars whether it be a picture or a pattern but we have them so we can post on WordPress. It is our profile image but it is much more than that.
Click your Gravatar picture in there it has a place to customize and put your blog or blogs address or a website or both. It might already list your email but what I have noticed is many of your not linked up. All you have is a picture and when someone clicks it they go nowhere. No one can find you.
Check it out and make sure yours shows your blog if not when you Comment or LIKE a page someone can not find your blog.
If you want more Likes, Follows and Comments make sure your Gravatar is linked up.
This blog is new as of this week, and everything has just been done including personalizing it.
In my opinion a photography blogs background needs to either be black or white to truly showcase your work. Photography is about noticing the pictures and not to be distracted by a busy background.
I have used one of my own images as a header. I will be changing this header quite often.
You could create a header image in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro that was personalized with a crazy background pattern or font. You could make it any color you wanted it to be as long as it fits in the size it needs to be for your blog theme.. Then you can add in Text like an advertisement for you blog. After your done you can upload it like a picture. That would be a fun way to customize a blog in a different way.
All the customizing we can do from font colors,background colors, header images, right or left side picture position is all part of customizing our blogs. I tend to like everything on the left hand side.
Many people wrap text around a picture that is another way you could personalize your blog.
Since I have had another blog for about 1 1/2 years I have learned a lot.
I love the blogging community and all the challenges that we have. It keeps us on our toes.
