One of the new experiments I’m trying because of my better blog software is integrating avatars. If you have signed up at MyBlogLog or have a Gravatar, your avatar (aka usericon, pic, mugshot) will show up beside the comments you leave here. I think it adds a more personal touch to our interactions. Also, in the sidebar I have a MyBlogLog recent visitors list.Please do sign up for MyBlogLog. It takes only a minute and is being used at a growing number of sites. Any extra touch of community is worth working for, I believe, and this does provide that.
