Gravatars

I’ve been making quite a few changes to the site of late. No, I still can’t get crossposting with LiveJournal to function. 🙁 On the plus side, though, the site now accepts gravatars! A gravatar, for those curious, is a Globally Recognized Avatar (or, alternatively, an avatar that gravitates after you). It’s a little picture — an icon, if you will — that represents you on social sites.

In my comments, for example, you’ll notice little picture places next to folks’ names. Some people have pictures in them, some don’t. If you don’t have one but want one (all the other kids are doing it), go to Gravatar.com to register one. It’s quick, it’s painless, and it’s absolutely free. After that, your little gravatar will show up at any site that accepts them — which is a large and fast-growing number of sites, especially now that WordPress (the core software running this and many other websites) supports gravatars natively.

So get ’em!
