I came a cross a great tip last week to make your new blog look a little less like a “newbie” blog…
When starting a new blog most people concentrate their time and efforts on changing the blog theme…but one way to really make you blog look seasoned is to change the favicon.
What’s A Favicon?
A favicon is a little icon that appears next to the web address at the top of your browser. So as you can see by the picture below I did not have a favicon for my blog before learning this little tip.
How I Changed My Favicon
The first this I needed to do was to turn an image in to a favicon. The favicon is 16 pixels by 16 pixels.
This great site will convert your images into the proper favicon format. Check it out here: http://www.favicon.cc
Once you have created your favicon all you have to do is install it into your websites root folder.
Since I am using the Thesis Wrodpress theme I was able to upload my favicon directly through my theme.
Here is what my favicon looks like now…
I hope you found this little tip useful…
Talk to you soon,
