Last week I got an email from a blogger asking “What is a favicon? And how do I customize it?”
What a perfect question! Today we are going to talk all about how to add a favicon to your blogger site.
What is a Favicon?
First of all, a favicon is the cute little picture next to your url in an internet browser. Depending on which browser you are using it might look a tiny bit different. Here are some examples ::
Top – Favicon in Safari :: Bottom – Favicon in Firefox
How to Add a Favicon to Blogger
Customizing your favicon in Blogger is very simple.
First you will need to create your image in photoshop, paint, gimp, etc…
Make is an exact square, 30px x 30px. Then save that image to your desktop.
Navigate in your blogger dashboard to the layout tab. You will see “Edit” next to the favicon area.
Once you click edit a new screen will pop up where you will be able to upload your image and save.
And now you have a customized favicon!
