What is a favicon?
To quote Wikipedia.org
A favicon (short for ‘favorites icon’), also known as a website icon, a page icon or an urlicon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage.
Where do you see a favicon? You will see it at the beginning of the URL (in your search bar), when you land on a page of a website or blog, where one has been created. It’s actually a very small picture, logo, or whatever the author of the site, chooses.
While I was visiting one of my Blogging Buddies, Nelson at Help Desk Geek, I noticed that he had a favicon. Since he is an expert in computers, I asked him if he would share, with the rest of us, how to create a favicon. He graciously complied, and produced an excellent post detailing how to make your own favicon. To read his post, click on this link: How To Create a Favicon For Your Blog
When you are visiting his site, take note of his favicon. It’s a photo of himself.
How cool is that?
So far, I haven’t ventured into the direction of creating a favicon for my blogs, but when the time arises, I know just where to go, to get detailed instructions.
Thank you again, Nelson!
