There’s a lot of content out there on the web. So much, in fact, that it can be tough to wade through everything and find the gems. That’s why we’ve gone ahead and done the work for you. Here are five pieces of content that we think are worth checking out.
1. Paul Taubman reminds us to have and keep a Gravatar updated.
If you don’t have a Gravatar set up, it’s time to do it. As ‘silly’ as it may seem to have a Gravatar (a tiny image associated with your email address), there’s an important reason behind doing it that Paul shares:
You want to be visible. If nothing else, you want to create a brand for yourself. You want people to start to identify with who you are whenever they see your picture. Your avatar should be an important part of your online presence.
Paul’s post is a quick read and you’ll see examples of 2 Gravatar accounts and why it’s important to have one set up.
