About a month ago in Lorelle’s WordPress School free online course you added a Gravatar image to your WordPress.com test site. A Gravatar image and profile is linked to your email address and displays on any WordPress (and many other services) site in the world when you use that email address to comment.
Another visual part of your online persona and profile is the blavatar.
Here is the difference between a Gravatar and Blavatar:
- Gravatar: Linked to your image, displayed anywhere Gravatars are used including all WordPress and WordPress.com sites, in comments, author profiles and icons, and throughout any site where you are a registered member. Your Gravatar follows you from site to site, wherever you use your email address.
- Blavatar: Linked to your site, displayed within site networks like WordPress.com to represent the website. You may be the owner or a contributor to the site, and your Gravatar will appear there and your Gravatar profile highlights these sites if you wish, displaying their Blavatar. The Blavatar is also the site’s favicon, the image that appears on the web browser tab.
