Your WordPress profile can link to a public Gravatar profile and you can control what is publicly displayed and even provide links from your Gravatar profile to your pages at WordPress or elsewhere.
I try to use the Gravatar links from my pages to WordPress users that Like my posts. In many cases (the majority), the Gravatar link is a dead end. If you haven’t been using the Gravatar profiles to provide a link to your WordPress blog, this tip is for you. Even if you already do this, there may be a tip in this post that works for you as well.
To begin: https://wordpress.com/settings/public-profile/
You can fill in the basics on your WordPress profile — click to open your public profile. Open https://secure.gravatar.com/site/wpcom/
Add your Name and Details.
You may add HTML links in your About Me text if desired. I added a link to my WordPress blog using embedded HTML code so that the link can be clicked from my WordPress pages. Its simple enough — just change my hunt4truth to your WordPress blog name and insert the code in your About Me text box as shown here:
Next, choose an image to display and insert your links to blogs or Websites.
Check out your profile and make sure everything is as you like it.
WordPress offers lots of wigdget and custom theme tweaks. It took some time for me to figure them out, but I did make my page quite nicely do what I like with some customization tweaks to The Chateau Theme that I settled upon.
Thanks for visiting.
