WordPress Not Working with Gravatar

Hello! I keep getting an error message from Gravatar when trying to link it to my WordPress account so it is part of the “Verified Services” found on Gravatar.

I typed in the following blog address <https://anadmirer57.wordpress.com/xlmrpc.php&gt; in the Gravatar input box. Then I submit the username and password. See the image below:Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 8.00.15 PM

Consistently, I keep getting the following error message:

I cannot see any “Remote Publishing” level after following the prompt path from “Settings” to “Writing”.

Any help would be really appreciated!—————-UPDATE!!

With quick, helpful responses to my question on the support thread, the problem seems to be that Gravatar intends to connect WordPress.org — not WordPress.com.

Thank you. I have a lot to learn about the world of WordPress
