While this blog has been around for a year now, I have been commenting for longer than that. I can’t recall exactly when my first comment was, I want to say January of last year. Eh, doesn’t matter. What does matter, on the other hand, is that since I first started commenting I have been using the same stock gravatar image. That has gone on long enough, I should think. It is about time that I had my own gravatar image, one that is distinctive, if perhaps not unique.
However, in the spirit of my one-year blogiversary, I would like to offer my loyal readers and commenters a special opportunity. I invite you to submit suggested images for my new gravatar design. This can be done either in the comments of this post or via e-mail. Then, after a few weeks, once I feel there are enough suggestions, I will create a new thread where my readers can vote on the design that I will use. Depending on how many different suggestions there are, I will probably select only the ones I think best to make the final cut. But the final choice I will leave up to you.
As far as themes go, I would suggest something religious and/or military, if only to fit with the name of the blog. I will draw the line at anything obscene, vulgar or sacrilegious. Otherwise, most anything else will go.
