1. Log into www.edublogs.org and click on ‘Your Dashboard’
2. In the bottom-right corner you will find a space to update your email details. After this, click on ‘Update profile’. You will be taken to a new page where you will need to change your email address again, and also create a new password. Do not fill out any other information on this page, and remember to write down your user name and new password in your homework diary.
3. Now you can create an avatar. Upload your avatar by going back to your Dashboard (using the menu options on the left) and clicking on ‘Change avatar’. You can also select this from ‘Users’ –>’Your Avatar’.
Further details on how to upload your avatar can be found here: http://theedublogger.com/2009/11/29/creating-and-uploading-your-comment-avatar/. This site also provides a very detailed list of online avatar tools.
