What’s an avatar? …
You know those cool little symbols that show up when ever you comment on a blog post or add a comment in a forum?
In the beginning I just thought they were cool. I used my logo because it seemed like the right thing to do, and I like my logo.
But I just read this article over at sitepoint.com about what your avatar should look like.
I’ve changed mine.
I think it’s more connected to me, doncha think? And after all, a part of posting is to build your presence on the web. And personally, I want to be recognized. I am in business!
Don’t have an avatar?

Upload a picture. Crop it as you see fit. It will be a square.
And then, by the magic of the internet, you’re good to go.
