Suppose you have a WordPress.com blog and you choose to auto post to social media sites like many other bloggers do. Then one day you find your most recent post did not get published to Facebook or another social network. What to do?

A Gravatar image is universally associated with your web presence and it’s a very powerful branding tool. Register a Gravatar and add links to your Gravatar profile page that describe your brand and where you can be found in the digital world so your brand is easy to follow.

There are positives to social networking but there are negatives too. Always exercise common sense when it comes to which social media sites you are active on and what you post. Not connecting cautiously and posting appropriately can ruin your reputation, so if you want to be a successful blogger think before you act.
