Do you know what an “Avatar” is? Its a digital representation of a user in a virtual reality site, kinda like the picture for your nickname. Its used on foruns, chats (messenger), etc, and now its available on my website thanks to Gravatar.

What is a gravatar?
A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel 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?

Yep, sign up (for free) on Gravatar and upload your “avatar”. Few minutes later you´ll have a global avatar that will escort you nickname wherever you post your opinions.
Do you wanna see how it looks like on my blog? Just check my comments!
