    Hi Ms. Linda!
    As I’ve said I visit here again. :)
    Take easy on me, I use gravatar obviously. I got my laughs on the ones who commented here. On Anna’s side. I really am appreciating the way you respond.
    As I’ve said before, an author of a blog rarely comments or have an effort answering the ones who comment. The times I visit your blog posts are making me every visit a great fan of yours. Truly I like the way you interact.
    Same as Keywordluv, what is the sense if people are using “keywords” as their name. Didn’t their parents named them as a human being must have? Same as Gravatar, it shows your identity thus making you a sense of points against spam. Obvious people are not into the proper conversation. A name and a face not of a stranger alien like anonymous.
    Till here Miss Linda!
    I assure you I will visit more often. :)

    Gravatar is a nice service that makes the internet a bit more personal. You can save time by adding your picture once, and then anytime you change it, your new picture will show up on all Gravatar powered sites and apps. Plus, the Gravatar profile pages are a rather nice way to make a quick site to share more info about you with the world.

    Just discovered Gravatar not too long ago and I love it! Great way to distinguish one’s self from the other bloggers – even though I haven’t put up my *actual* picture just yet, I’ll probably get there eventually! Til then, Rosie’s roses will just have to do. ;)

    What’s the point of having a gravatar if people won’t use their real pictures? Doesn’t say anything about their real identity right?

      Daniel,
      You’re right, it isn’t necessarily personally branding if an image is used instead of their picture, but everyone has a different purpose! It could be a symbol just to state a person’s passion. After all, not everyone online is marketing!
      Linda

    Yeah.I completely agree with you Linda. Even I run a website and whenever I see people without a gravatar,it just turns me off. Not many users know about the service I feel. Thats the reason many have no gravatar. Thanks for this post.

      Noty,
      I look forward to learning your name! I understand what you’re saying, many people don’t want to create a Gravatar with their picture, but they use some kind of image that they love, a flower, an animal or something to be remembered by. It all depends on what our purpose for blogging and commenting is!

    It makes me glad to see i’m not the only one with a gravatar, this happens on some blogs and then i feel left out. Kind of lose the will to leave a comment, if you know what i mean.
