A free WordPress theme by Jetpack

Satellite WordPress theme

Satellite is a snappy personal blogging theme with beautiful typography, prominent featured images, and a fresh, modern look.

Site Logo/Gravatar

If you add a site logo, it will appear in the upper-left corner next to your site title, and in the slide-out sidebar above the site title.

If you’d prefer to display your Gravatar in these areas instead, navigate to Customize → Theme and put your email address in the text field to show the Gravatar associated with that email account. If a site logo has already been added, you’ll need to remove it before the Gravatar will appear instead.

Social Links

Up to five social links will appear in the navigation bar if you assign a Custom Menu to the Social Links area. The supported social media networks are displayed at the bottom of the page.
