Do You Have a Gravatar? Get One!

Gravatars are sweet!

Lots of Gravatars!

If you’re not familiar with Gravatars then here’s your intro! They are awesome and most simply they are pictures that represent you via comments and other creative uses (like profiles, etc).

The word “Gravatar” stands for “Globally Recognized Avatar” and you can quickly sign-up and associate an image of yourself (or something else creative) with an email.

As you can see from the thumbnail to the right I have Gravatars for all the emails that I own and operate! You can go as crazy as you’d like with it!

But again, they are typically use in comments and I highly recommend getting one!

See how more attractive the comment section becomes on your blog when you can actually see the people who are commenting?

It makes a difference especially when you don't have one... sad!

Obviously it’s better with a face to a name, right?

So, show off your Gravatar in the comments! Also, if you’re not using your own picture then what was the inspiration for your current image?

Let me know!
