I’m new to blogging, don’t use Facebook or Flicker and didn’t have any need for an avatar until I set up this blog. However from the blog admin I saw that it was possible to associate gravatars, which prompted my curiosity. With a little digging I found www.gravatar.com.
It was extremely easy to upload and crop an image, give it a rating and link it to my email address. Now I have an avatar for this Blog, and one which will apparently follow me around if I decide to subscribe to many other sites. Really cool and highly recommended. All I need now is a better image!
