How Do You Create a Gravatar that Best Represents YOU?

Welcome to Just Write, a blog for newbies and fun bloggers, writers and photographers, where you do not have to be Patrick Problogger to have a great blog.

Steve and I are looking for YOUR stories.

When I started my blog, determining how I wanted to present myself to the world was harder than figuring out the mechanics of doing it. I struggled and changed mine several times. Did anyone else have trouble with this?

  1. I don’t really like my Gravatar – but it was the one I originally chose when I started my blog so I’m sticking to it because people know it’s me when they see it. I think I originally chose it because it gave me a bit of anonymity and it was taken in a place I love (in a boat) 😀


  2. You can say that again! But I agree that it’s difficult to change once it’s what people recognize you by. I dashed mine off, and now I think I could have done a better job…
