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?

    • Create a list?

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

  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…
