My Students Favorite 14 Avatar Creators

This past week I moved my students in to the blogosphere to start participating in the great conversation.  One of the big things we talked about however was privacy and keeping all personal information and images off of their blogs.  So I had them create an Avatar to represent them online.  At first my students seemed genuinely bothered by the fact that they could not place their own pictures on their blog but after some conversation about safety and the purpose of the blog most agreed that using an Avatar would be just fine.   The following list seemed to be the most popular avatar creators among my students.
