All of you LJ folks, I highly recommend getting your Gravatar. These Globally Recognized Avatars can be used anywhere, anytime, on just about any blog or BBS site…except, not yet on LiveJournal. :)
If you have a Gravatar, and use your registered address when you post on An Atypical Life, your 80×80 Gravatar will appear next to your comment, with a link to your LJ or other website. Alternately, you can use the text:
to insert your gravatar directly into the post.
I’ve also activated Markdown for this site, for easier formatting wiki-style. There’s some syntax hints if you need ’em, but Markdown is amazingly intuitive.
