A Globally Recognised Avatar

A Globally Recognised Avatar

Some of the more observant of our readers may have noticed the little pictures that appear next to the Names of anyone who leaves a response to one of our blog entries.

The default picture looks like this blank avatar image
However others have custom little images like custom avatar image

So how do you make your little avatar appear as your own
custom image? Simple…..Gravatar.

A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar

Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site
appearing beside your name when you do things like comment
or post on a blog.

Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums, so why not
have one that works on almost any site?

To get your own Free Gravatar, just head on over to
and sign up with a valid email address. Once you have done that,
it’s as simple as choosing an image and you’re done. It really is that simple.
