Today’s post is dedicated to Chuck Norris: the man, the myth, the legend, and the star in our demo of a brand-new feature: Blavatars.
“What-atars?” you say. Blavatars! Blog + avatars.
As the incomparable Nikolay explains in the video below, your blavatar automatically becomes your favicon: the little icon that displays next to your blog’s URL in a browser’s web address bar. It’ll also show up next to your pingbacks in the comments section of other blogs.
To get a blavatar for your blog, just go to Settings in your dashboard and upload an image as your Blog Picture. After you upload, you can crop as you like. Save and you’re all set.

I found out from the start, just some days after I made my blog, all by myself, is this supposed to be difficult? .. or am I special? :P
Cool deal, I’ll give it a try.
OMFG I-LOVE-IT, but not Chuck Norris (just had to clear that up)

Nicely done! This finally closes the last gap that was remaining with “blog branding”.
We can now finally have a uniformed “set” look when people visit out sites.
Thank you, and as usual: You guy/girls rock!!!
