If you take part in internet discussions like this blog, your name often appears next to an icon, here called a “gravatar”. By default this will usually have a standard image of a blank head next to it.
If you want, you can easily personalise your gravatar, associating it with your website and email details and choosing your own image. This could be a photo of you, your company logo, or anything else you like. (A roughly square image works best). If you are on the web to try and promote your business, this is worthwhile, as your gravatar (avatar) will work on many sites.
It’s easy and quick to do, just visit http://en.gravatar.com/. Don’t be a blank head.
