WordPress maven Lorelle has a post about creating gravatars and adding them to your blog. I left a comment in advocacy of Shamus’ and Scott’s alternatives. One thing I didn’t mention was that using a locally-generated solution like Wavatars or MonsterID also lends a kind of consistency to the avatars that show up, which in my opinion really facilitates a sense of community. To each his own, but it’s worth proselytizing the alternatives.
One thought on “Lorelle pushes Gravatars”
Thanks for the support. I’m surprised Gravatar hasn’t created their own avatar generator for people who haven’t registered. Seems like it’d be easy enough to do.
