**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 🙂
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 🙂
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!
Dalmatians :)! Are these your special spotted puppies? I miss mine.
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.
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.
yes you can go to Gravatar and upload as many photos as you would like and choose the one for the avatar.
Lets see if this works?
well it didn’t work for me
It takes a little bit, and well, it looks like it worked!
maybe you just can’t see your own Gravitar?
Ah ah there I am, thank you! I just need more patience.
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.
Cool feature. 🙂
Must take a while to kick in.
Yes it does…hang in there 🙂
Weird. Did you you use the right password and username for this site? Maybe you should try it again?? :/
I’m confused. But my avatar will be so worth the wait. 🙂
I’m starting to get an inferiority complex. O_O
I’ll get it worked out eventually.
My finally appeared after about a week. Success!
Let’s try it and see if it works.
It did! Very impressive!
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.
Ah, you’ll look good with any pixel!
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.
Gravatar has finished swallowing whatever it had stuck and has relearned CSS. My wonderful gif will be here soon.
It’s beautiful!!! Cure little smile there…
Hi Tammy! This is an avatar test.
Yea! I see you 🙂
My pic isn’t showing up in chat, is there something i need to do?
Hi! I found this on facebook and couldn’t resist.
Tanx for all da techie help!
I can’t believe it’s 30 days to go!
Did little demons get inside and put up this picture? I don’t know! My primitive mind can’t grasp these concepts.
“Have fun everyone! I look forward to seeing either you or the image you think best represents you :)…..hmmm Really Tammy?
IS SYD free yet?… 😉
OK, let’s see if this works… Yay, there it is! The kitty is my dear friend, Margaret, who went to cat heaven last October 16th after a sudden heart attack. She was uppity and unruly just like all of us TAMS.
Testing Testing 1… 2… 3…
Avatar Check….. How Copy … Over?

Thanks!! Testing it out.
OMG, your avatar baby looks just like my Snoopy!!
Hmmm… perhaps I missed something. Ah well.
There we go… I am Not full of fail!!! And I Do love a good stogie. Like blowing that smoke in the direction of the whiny hippy libs and giving them a grin. Of course I only puff on quality sticks, so they actually smell decent. Anybody wanna join me for one?

Thank you Tammy for adding this feature it makes posting more enjoyible.
I tried posting an avatar but it didn’t work. For some reason the avatar I chose wouldn’t upload.
There is a limit on byte size and file type…I had the same problem until I cropped Syd’s picture.
yea, can’t wait to show off my new do!
Yay! Now everyone here will have art!
Coolio! Hey look, I’m on Tammy Bruce.com! Wheeeeeeeeee!!!
(For clarification, I am the Emily. From C4P. You know the one) 😉
Edited to add: It worked, thank you, Gravatar!
It maybe too big, try re-sizing it and see what happens.
Interesting – it never shows up correctly in the chat room, but it’s working like a champ here.
My avatar says hello to all the newbie avatars! Pass the Catnip please!
Oh, all right, Mom, we’ll get our avatars…..golly gee, Wally, Mom’s sure fussy today….

Ok. Lets try it again. I have to use my blue star mom pin with yellow ribbon til my son is safely home in Sept….LOL it changed the tiny first one on my previous post. Now its too big but at least you can see what it is. 🙂
