Make yourself a Gravatar

Are you tired of uploading a picture or avatar of yourself every time you join a new community? Then Gravatar is for you…..

A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is an image that follows you from blog to blog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites.

All you need to do is sign up for an account (free), enter your email address & then upload an image you want to use to portray you. The image can be from your computer or from a website. You also get to rate your gravatar as G, PG or R! I thought I might use this one – rated G – or maybe that should be PG!!

Your gravatar will appear on gravatar enabled weblogs – I don’t know how many of those there’ll be? It’s easy to enable your blog for gravatars – you just upload a piece of code that you get from the Gravatar website.

  1. The idea of Gravatars is good, although most people don’t enable it yet.

    I’d like to see them used more in the near future though!
