Gravatar is a portmanteau for Globally Recognized Avatar and is a user image associated with an email address. The Gravatar is then used whenever that email address is used for comments or post authorship on websites which have Gravatar enabled.

Gravatar is owned by Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com. WordPress blogs, both .com, and self-hosted WordPress.org blogs use Gravatars for user avatars unless otherwise disabled by the website owner.

If a user leaves a comment and is a guest or doesn’t have a Gravatar, a default icon will be used instead – website owners can choose from a default user icon, the Gravatar logo, or from several randomly-generated icons: Identicon, Retro, MonsterID, or Wavatars.

Cheryl
Cheryl is a former Occupational Therapist and WordPress enthusiast who became a writer in some parallel universe and occasionally, but infrequently, publishes things in this one. She writes two blogs (or is it three) which she won't quit because she knows that blogs, in her case, are like a hydra and if she cuts one off two more will take its place. When she's not doing that, she enjoys hiking, cycling, kayaking (formerly fast, now ebike), messing around with Adobe illustrator, making assorted things, meditating (though she wouldn't call that "like," and reading. She normally doesn't speak about herself in the third person, but she sometimes uses "we" in the royal sense while writing this blog. She lives in Poulsbo, WA with her spouse, her youngest adult daughter, a very old mutt, and a Siamese cat.
