How to get your own gravatar.

What is a gravatar you say… well, you know how you post a comment on a blog and everyone else has a snapshot pic of themselves except for you. All you have is a default {a.k.a. ugly} placeholder thumbnail. Well, that little image associated with a specific person is called an avatar. A gravatar is a globally recognized avatar, so if you get a gravatar for yourself that pic will show up whenever you comment on a blog. Check out this explanation on wikipedia. { http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravatar }

It’s really easy to create a gravatar, you just go to this website { http://www.gravatar.com }and click on ‘get your gravatar today’. Follow the steps… and choose an image that you want to use. Once this is done anytime you post a comment on a blog that is associated with the email address you used to set up your gravatar acct, your very own gravatar will appear.

Some people get creative and use art or a cool pic as their gravatar… what will you do? After you get your gravatar you can comment on this post to see how your gravatar looks! 🙂
