 Blogs: use a default "blavatar" when the blog has no site icon

 So far when the Blogs component was not supporting the WordPress site icon
 feature or when the blog had no site icon set, we used to fallback on the
 Blog Administrator's avatar.

 We realized this was a wrong approach, because:
 - the site creator may no longer be a member of the specific site, in
 which case the lowest id will belong to a different (non-admin) user.
 - The site admin may have changed in some other way.
 - The site creator's account may have been deleted.
 - Etc.

 When any of these happen, you get the avatar of a random site user.

 That's why just like we do for users or groups, we are now using a default
 blog avatar (`mysterious-blog.png`) as a fallback when the site icon for
 the blog is not available.
