How to get your picture (avatar) on your blog
Your photo that appears with each blog comes from the “gravatar” service. The gravatar service associates a photo that you provide with the email address that you provide. Whenever you log in to blogging or commenting service anywhere on the web, if you use the email address associated with the gravatar, the gravatar will likely appear next to your post.
To have your photo appear, you will need to sign up for the gravatar service at http://en.gravatar.com/ . Enter the email address you use for blogging, then upload the photo you want to appear. Your blog will automatically pull the photo from gravatar.
Just be warned that if you use the same email address to post comments on other sites (like ABC News, etc.) they might pull the same photo. If you don’t want your photo to appear other places, use a unique email address for your mommd blog.
How to embed video in a post
While editing a blog post (or writing it for the first time) you can embed a video for display. In “visual” mode (where the tab “Visual” rather than “HTML” is active in your editing window), put your cursor where you want the video to appear.
Next, type the code for the video. The code for the video consists of opening and closing brackets, an abbreviation for the video service, and the unique ID of the video.
