Personalize Your Favicon

Have you ever wanted to change the little favicon by your url?  Maybe personalize it to reflect you or your blog?  Well, now you can do that in a few easy steps. Check out my new favicon below - I wanted something that reflected my blog name, so I picked a home with a heart.  Isn't it cute?!


I was surprised how easy this was and the best part is it’s FREE!  Follow these steps to create your own unique design:

* Go to http://www.favicon.cc/ and create an account.

* Create a favicon or upload an image. 

* Once you have created your favicon, you need to download the image.  You can “preview” it first, but just remember where you saved it so you can add it to your blog.

Gardners2 Bergers listed two ways of installing your favicon and I only tried one which I will post below.

* Go to your dashboard and click on design.

* Right under add and arrange page elements, you'll see favicon.  
* Click on edit and add the saved file here.  You can save your changes and preview your new favicon.  If you don’t like it as much as you thought, or something is wrong, you can delete it and start over.  Save the changes and voila, you’re done!   

That was easy, wasn’t it?  For the original post on Gardners 2 Bergers, click here.

I found this tip through TipJunkie's Homemade Projects Party.  If you link up to a "party", it pays to check out out what other people have posted and I have found some delicious recipes and neat projects.  Gardners 2 Bergers has a great list of blogs that host parties - and I know there are more out there, so one night when you want to relax and there's nothing on TV, check a few out.  These ladies put a lot of work into setting up parties and posting about them - please let them know how much you appreciate it!

I didn't even know what a favicon was! Thanks for the education. May have to try that. :)
