You can have your own avatar on Slugger…

Joe Canuck’s just emailed me asking me how to get a picture to appear on his posts in the comment zone. It’s pretty straightforward.

a) Go to this site: http://en.gravatar.com/site/signup
b) Put in the email address that you are registered with on Slugger
c) It will send an email to your mailbox – just open it and confirm by clicking on the link.

Then you can upload whichever pic you want to represent you on Slugger and other word press sites that use gravatar.com. Good luck!!
