Just before I begin with normal posting on this new site, I thought I would take care of a bit of housekeeping by very briefly discussing avatars or gravatars.
Before I do that, if this is your first visit, I suggest that you quickly scroll down for the information in my first two welcoming posts. If you can’t see them, they are Welcome to My New Digs and Welcome Back.
Now, about avatars: this information is new to me, so, for what it’s worth, I thought I’d pass it on — just in case it might be new to you too. When you are outside of Blogger, the avatar (personal picture) that you use there doesn’t follow you. However, on most WordPress blogs and sometimes others, that can be easy to amend — at least if the blogger in question has enabled the appropriate plugin.
If you go to gravatar.com, you can set up a free account and upload a photo. Then, you associate the photo/avatar with whatever email address that you use to post comments. Lo and behold, it should pop up beside your words of wisdom when you write a comment here (and quite possibly elsewhere). It’s free and easy peasy if you’re so inclined. If you’re not so inclined, that’s fine and dandy, but I just thought you might like to know. 🙂
One more item of information: I am using WordPress software to host this blog, but it’s on my own site. You can also get free blogging accounts at wordpress.com. I’m not suggesting that you should because I’m sure that you’re happy with Blogger, but I just thought I would explain the difference.
So … I think that takes care of all of the introductory matter that I can think of. Tomorrow or soon, I’ll resume normal blogging. Mind you, I don’t yet know what the heck I will be blogging about. You see; some things never change — no matter where I hang out.
