You may have noticed that some of the people that leave comments on Wildfire Today and other web sites always have a photo or graphic to the left of their text. It’s called an “avatar”, and in this case it is an image that follows you from one avatar-enabled web site to another, appearing beside your name when you leave a comment. If you set up an image associated with your email address just once at Gravator.com, the image will appear with your comments on avatar-enabled sites. Then the system detects the email address you enter in a web site’s comment form and seeks out and embeds the image. As usual, when you fill in your email address as you leave a comment on Wildfire Today, it will never be revealed.
Here is a 2-minute video from Gravatar.com that explains how easy it is to set up an avatar.
