This nifty plugin allows visitors to your site to like your post, photo, video or any other content on your blog, by using their Gravatar email address. They simply enter their email address as they would when leaving a comment and hit the like button. Their Gravatar will appear where ever you place the Gravatar like feature, which is normally close to the end of the post. You can view this plugin in action on my personal blog at XtremeBlogger.net
