Avatars on Comments

Hello,

Today I want to talk about Avatars. I’m still new to blogging, so this is something I just learned, and I wanted to share it with you. When you add comments to the blog posts, you get a picture next to your comment. By default you get this one:

Mystery Man Gravatar

If you want a customized Avatar, you need to create one at: http://en.gravatar.com/. Once you create a free account there, you can upload a picture, edit it, and associate it with your email address. Then, whenever you post a comment, on any blog that uses Gravatars, your picture will show next to your post. Here is the one I just created:

You will also be asked to rate your Avatar. Because anyone can view this site, we only allow “G” rated avatars.
