"Tip of the Week" - Do You Have A Gravatar
A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites. Avatars help identify your posts on web forums, so why not on weblogs?
And here is how you can get one and I would encourage you to do so. I've been using one for months.
Signing up for a gravatar.com account is FREE, and all that’s required is your email address. Once you’ve signed up you can upload your avatar image and soon after you’ll start seeing it on gravatar enabled weblogs!
Go HERE to sign up. It is quick and easy to do.
Solo Practice University is gravatar enabled. The reason this is so important....recognition, familiarity, others seeing you in many places makes people say, "I've seen her around" which leads to, "I know her." In this day and age of multiple social media sites, this type of consistency throughout multiple communities is an easy, added bonus. OK..it's a no-brainer.
