Tips & Tricks Tuesdays at Sew at Home Mummy

This is a link up party where you are encouraged to link up your tip, trick or tutorial from your blog!


Today's tip is a bloggy one: it's about adding a "favicon" to your blogger blog.

What's a "favicon" you ask?

You should see this little image:
... in the window tab beside my blog name, like this:
(in Google Chrome)
So, this is how you do it. :)


Create a *square* image - and it has to be perfectly square. I like to use Publisher, but if you have Photoshop, or use an online editing program like Photobucket or Pixlr.com to ensure your image is:

- perfectly square

- less than 100kb

... then, go to your Blogger Dashboard

- - Layout

- - - Click on the "Edit" link on the Favicon window:
A pop up window appears:
- - - - Click: "Choose File" button
upload your image and click "Save"!

It may take a while for your image to upload and become visible on your tabs and bookmarks bar; when I've changed mine, in order for it to show up I've had to reboot my computer, but it does show up!

Now! Link up your tip, trick or tutorial below!
