Five Clicks to Your Own Favicon

Have you noticed that Blogger has added a new, simple way to add a favicon to your blog?  I only realized it was there when I was changing my blog design. 

Some of you might we wondering, what is a favicon?   This is Wikipedia's Definition.

The favicon for my blog is this little orange star next to my blogs name...

...and here on my sidebar in the 'fabulous sites' section. 
(Tip:  If you add your own blog to your blog list, you can check quickly to make sure your post published correctly.)

Now you can add a favicon to your own blog with five quick clicks.

1.  Click on 'design' in your Blogger menu.
2.  Click on 'edit'. 

This window will pop up. 

3.  Click on browse to choose your image.  (There is a limit on the size of picture you can use.  I made the image quite small before I saved it, see star image above.)
4.  Select an image from your computer.
5.  Click on save. 

It's really just as easy as that!  A favicon is a fun and simple way to add a little personality to your blog title.  Give it a try. :)

Today's Fabulous Find...my very own favicon. 

Pin It!

I saw that when I was changing up my blog this weekend. I've learned that if I don't know what it is, don't touch it. I was also wondering how bloggers were putting those cute symbols by there web address!
Thank you for sharing this with us. I learn something new every day about this world of blogging!

just tried but don't have an image to choose from. Where can I find small(100KB) images to use as a favicon?

It just took a while to show up, but it finally did!
I wrote a post about it on my blog and am sending them to you for your great instructions. Thank you so much for your help.
