My FAVICON.

Do you know where you are?

I was reading about the "12 Most Common Mistakes New Bloggers Make" by Danny Brown and realized that I hadn't yet made a favicon.

"Hey JC! What the heck is a favicon?"

Folks, in plain English, a favicon is that thingie in the corner of your thingie.


Apparently a blog should have one to help it stand out. So people know where they are.

I made my favicon thingie here at favicon.cc
And I figured out how to get it into the corner of my thingie at BloggingTips.com

So....does it look like me?

  1. Nice! I've been in the process of vamping up my blog thingies...thank you for the tip/tutorials about doing this little thingie too! (and the proper name for it...apparently people have no clue what thingie I'm talking about when I call it that thingie.) LOL Still don't think giraffe legs will fit in the little thingie box though.

  2. Totally looks like you...if you squint just a bit.

  3. I like it. It reminds me of a video game from back in the day. Hey maybe you should create one and use your avatar as one of the characters.

  4. Haha, very cool, and yes, as @Alisha mentions, it reminds me of my classic video gaming days. And that's no bad thing! :)

  6. I’m not getting one… my Hubby swore like the devil in a drunken brawl trying like hell to make one work for me about 2 years ago… So I dare not ask that of him again. :-P He has my template in his Mac or I would go ahead and try.
    Yes, it looks like a Space Invader you trying to eat your dress or are you shooting the dress out of your mouth?

  8. AWESOME! Thanks Sosososososoooooo much! I have been trying to update this since February! Apparently blogger gives you the option in your template editing, but when I uploaded the favicon.ico file it didn't work. Working now hosted on free host space!

  9. I had the same result as you Linds, the favicon.ico file was rejected by Blogger. But it worked fine hosted on my own server. Woo! Feel free to leave us the link here so we can go check out your favicon!

  16. I had a thingie when my blog got redone, but then somehow it disapppeared when Blogger had all its problems (I hate Blogger - it still won't let me sign on to your site to leave my comment, I have to use AIM or Anonymous). I think I may try Dan's suggestions to make another one because dammit, I deserve a thingie!
