**Bumped Up for Newbies**

Gravatar.com is a site related to WordPress and all you have to do is create a free profile there and upload the photo(s) you’d like to use for your Comment picture. Right now most of us have a default blue box thingy, but it’s fun to change it, and gives everyone else a sense of who you are πŸ™‚

Gravatar will automatically make your uploaded photo your avatar, but you must create an account there using the same email you used to create your WordPress account here.

Have fun everyone! I look forward to seeing either you or the image you think best represents you πŸ™‚

    Thank you for addressing this! I was hoping this was an option (even to someone who prefers anonymity!)…so, thank you! BTW, I sent an email that we met at Troopathon…hope to connect soon!

  2. ibekatharine says:

    Awesome feature. I wasted nearly 30 minutes just fiddling around with new avatars. What a glorious waste of time! This site is fab!

    So happy your daily show will be podcast as I am in NY and can’t hear it unless I’m at my computer during the show.

  4. CatB1 says:

    Thanks Tammy … I was wondering if there was a way to change it…mine is Callie cruising in our convertible. This July 4th we both will be attending a Tea Party…we are on vacation but found one nearby. Callie has a “WAG” if you (heart) the USA ..t-shirt she will be wearing.

    Lets see if this works?

  6. paboki says:

    well it didn’t work for me

  7. paboki says:

    maybe you just can’t see your own Gravitar?

  8. paboki says:

    Ah ah there I am, thank you! I just need more patience.

  9. rustybx says:

    Since I haven’t thought of anything profound to add to the regular threads I’ll post here to test my avatar.

    This is a test. This is only a test. These are not the ‘droids you’re looking for.

  10. Kimj7157 says:

    Cool feature. πŸ™‚

  11. franknitti says:

    Let’s try it and see if it works.

  12. LauraAgain says:

    Okay, my turn to try!

    Tammy- saw you on the fox news channel tonight and a few nights ago. You are so right on , you get to the point and much of the time Im thinking what your saying. You are right November was a bigggg mistake, although I wasn’t a McCain fan either. Ive been watching the town hall meetings and agreeing with the people Im none of those things they have been calling the people well except maybe the mob, I am Itailian so just call me tight lips tree short for Theresa. Wish you were still on the Tucson radio broadcasts, you are one of brightest people on radio and tv combined. Hope to see you on the fox news channel more often, maybe you will have your on show on fnc someday , Your daily dose of common sense with Tammy Bruce.

    Sure are teeny tiny. It’s tough to look good with only 44 pixels by 44 pixels.

    • Tammy says:

      Ah, you’ll look good with any pixel!

      • BeforeGoreKneel says:

        well, progress thus far:

        I’m using IE8, on a pretty new laptop with Vista, and Gravator loads like a dead dog and looks so retro I have to figure that they have a weekend CSS collapse. But anyway, my wonderful handdrawn 44×44 gif is all ready to go, and I try uploading it. I get to their “Crop” page, it shows me my wonderful gif, and says ‘use the dotted line box to crop’. Only thing there’s no box, no dotted line, and the previews amazingly show me the upper left hand corner of my teeny-tiny (think Lisa Lupner’s voice here) picture. And there’s no place to go now. Gravatar won’t let me do anything more.

        So I swap out browsers and fire up my old fashioned Netscape 4.5. Gravatar still looks retro, but at least it loads like I have DSL instead of paper cups and string. ‘Cept Gravatar won’t let me login now.

        So piss on it for now. If anyone wants to see my gif, ask and I’ll email it to you. Though really, it’s just like a corner of a USPS stamp, it’s itty bitty. It would make a great t-shirt though. Enlarged.
