Getting started with Gravatar is easy; you’ll need to have a WordPress.com account and then authorize that account to connect to Gravatar.
On the Gravatar home page, click on the Sign Up button at the top-right of your browser window.
You’ll be asked to enter your email address.
Shortly after, you’ll receive an email with a confirmation link. Click on the confirmation button in the email to complete the signup process on Gravatar.
Uploading your first avatar

Pressing the ‘do this later’ link will skip this and take you straight to the profile editor.
