I know that I do not yet have any kind of a following for this blog, but those of you who have already become regulars might like to know that you can have your own custom image beside your comments. Sign up at Gravatar and, in minutes, you will have your own custom avatar that will appear any time you comment on WordPress blogs that have the Identicon feature enabled.  The service is free.

ETA:  the address that I gave for gravatars was not quite correct.  The link that is now in this post should take you where you need to go.  My apologies to those who may have had trouble.
