  1. How do I get a picture to show up when I post my blog?
    I don't know if I am an idiot or what because I cannot figure out how to get my profile photo next to my name in the right hand corner OR how to attach a photo so when I post my blog on facebook something shows up other than a big white square. Please help! Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is taraeichstedt.wordpress.com.

  2. 1. Gravatar/blavatar
    Gravatars/blavatars do not show up instantly after uploading them. Gravatar images are cached and frequently take several days to display after a change. Do not keep uploading!

    See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/gravatars/
    For best practices for uploading gravatars, avatars and blavatars scroll down to below the video here: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/24/gravatar-avatar-blavatar/

    To enable Gravatar display and hovercard display on your blog go to > Settings > Discussion and scroll way done the page to "Avatars".

  3. 2. Uploading images into posts and pages
    This is a link to instructions for uploading a header image http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/custom-header-image/#uploading-a-custom-header-image

    And this is the link to your detailed theme description page http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/balloons/

    For uploading images posts and pages see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/
    Here are more details about the options for uploading images http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/images-the-three-link-options/
    For troubleshooting images see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/troubleshooting-images/

  4. 3. Facebook image display
    We have no control here at WordPress.COM over the images that Facebook chooses to display or when they choose to flush their image caches. We really only send them the URL of the post, and they hunt through that for the excerpt and images to include.

    Please see http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug
    and http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/fb-link-has-no-thumbnails?replies=4#post-936861

  5. So once the gravatar image is cached, then it will show up as my profile pic on my blog, right? Thank you so much!!

  6. So read what I said above. "Gravatars/blavatars do not show up instantly after uploading them. Gravatar images are cached and frequently take several days to display after a change. Do not keep uploading!"
