An online persona? Or really me?

I need a Gravatar, you know one of those funky picture things that appears alongside comments on other peoples blogs (when I feel like commenting that is).

Thankfully there’s one centralised place for dumping your picture and most people can then access it on their blog (it’s actually built into WordPress 2.5+). But now comes the big decision…..

Do I want a photo of me or some online persona?!

    Tempting as it is, I’ve spent many hours playing with this site, and not half as much time (or energy) developing my face – if I knew how to that might be a start!!!
