Have you already activated your avatar? I’m referring to the image that appears beside your name whenever you leave comments (or publish posts) in avatar enabled blogs like those blog on WordPress.
Just take a look at my weekly top commenters for this week (can be seen as the first item on my sidebar at the right):
Caroline, Mona, Zoan and Eihdra already have their avatars activated while Shengkay still hasn’t that’s why her profile shows up using my current default avatar which is identicon. Other default avatars include the mystery man, gravatar logo, wavatar and monster ID – although there’s also the option to just leave it blank.
Do you want to set up your avatar so that your badge, picture or logo will show up across wordpress blogs whenever you leave a comment? It’s so easy! Just set up an account at Gravatar. After you’ve finished setting up your account, all your future and past comments on avatar enabled WordPress blogs will now show your avatar as long as you’re using the gravatar registered email address in leaving your comments.
Show off your pictures, badge or logo. It’s a great way to maintain your brand in the blogosphere.
