Sometimes it's the little things that add fun and quality to our lives. A favicon is a little thing...but it can add identity to your blog.
What’s a favicon?It’s the small image that shows up by the browser tab when people open your site.
Bible Love Notes favicon is this heart.
Do you see it on the tab on your browser?
For Bite Size Bible Study,
my favicon is an apple with a bite out of it.
For my Hungarian Bible Love Notes, A szeretet üzenete, the favicon is a blue heart (mostly to help me tell the icons on my bookmarks apart).
You want your favicon to be recognizable even though it's smaller than a lentil. So choose it carefully.
Making a favicon on Blogspot:1. Go to Design, Then layout
2. You’ll see “Favicon” in the left corner
3. Click “Edit”
4. A window will open
5. hit “Browse” and download a perfectly square image.
6. hit “save”
7. Sometimes you have to wait a week or two before it shows up on some browsers, sometimes it shows up immediately…not sure why, but wait if you don’t see it immediately.
The most important detail is making sure your image is perfectly square. If it's not, the favicon browser won't accept it. Use whatever photo program you have to make a non-square image square. If it shows up on the favicon in your layout, you've done it successfully.
