I felt stupid for not being able to figure out how to get an avatar to show up on this digital humanities blog. But Mark Harvey just explained to me that it magically pulls it from your account at Gravatar.com. So I went over there and it turns out I already had an account (via wordpress.com). I added an avatar photo, but it was for an old email address. Then I added the email address I used for this site, and assigned an avatar to that email address. Voila, my mug showed up on the greatlakesthatcamp blog!
Just thought I’d share in case anyone else was stumped on that one.
