Fix: Blogger stopped showing your Gravatar image?

Automattic (makers of WordPress) recently upgraded the Gravatar service into a home-page to a user’s profile and social networks, as pictured at the following article: http://thenextweb.com/apps/2010/03/26/wordpress-turns-gravatar-social-network/

However you may find that Google’s Blogger service is now showing a broken image link instead of your Gravatar image at your blog on blogspot.com. Easy to fix: edit your profile info at Blogger, click on the image parameter there and wait a bit for it to reload the image, then save your profile info again.

Also, it’s good to edit your profile settings at Gravatar.org to connect to Blogger, Facebook etc. in order to verify your identity. Can also add links to your websites to be shown at your public profile page (seems that if you don’t update your profile [and possibly verify your id via some social network connection] your Gravatar profile is by default kept private).
