It's time for another blog design tip! This is a quick tutorial on how to install a favicon on your blog or if you already have one, make a new one show up instantly. A favicon is a small image that shows up next to your blog title in the tabs of your internet browser, as you can see, mine is a little moustache. Sometimes when you install or update a new favicon it doesn't show up for 24 to 48 hours, but here is a super quick way to make it show up instantly!
You will need to make yourself a favicon, and it needs to be square, I recommend 400px by 400px. You can make these on PicMonkey if you don't have a photo editing program. I have made a paw print image for the purpose of this tutorial. I would also say save this as a PNG file.
Now go to your blogger dashboard and click edit on the Favicon section top left.
If you already have a favicon, press remove, then press CHOOSE FILE and search for your favicon on your computer.
You will see your little favicon show up then press SAVE.
Go to VIEW BLOG and then type /favicon.ico after your blog URL and press return (enter)
Once you press enter you should see your new favicon show up in the top left corner, if you still see your old favicon refresh the page. When you see it press CTRL + F5 at the same time!
When you press CTRL + F5 you should now see your new favicon show up in the tab!
Simply go back your blog and you will now see your shiny new favicon in action! VIOLA!
