A favicon (Favourite icon) is the small image you see in the title bar of your browser when viewing a website or blog. Most of the time, the logo of the website is used as the favicon. Having your own customized favicon instead of the default blogger favicon is a good way to send that unique message out to your followers and readers and also to get visitor's attention. A favicon is necessary as it server as the finishing touch needed to portray the design and identity of a great looking blog.
STEP 1: Go to your blogger's dashboard >> Layout. You would be presented with the layout of your entire blog, your widgets position e.t.c.
Step 2: Click on the edit link on the "Favicon" block with the default blogger logo on it. A new window should pop-up, where you can now browse for an image in your computer to choose as your new favicon.
Step 3: Click on the "Choose File" button and search for your already created favicon in .ico format, then click on save.
NOTE: .ico is a picture format just like the .jpg and .png picture formats that is specifically used for icons. Read our post on <a href="">How to create a favicon using photoshop</a>.
Step 4: Now you should see your own favicon instead of the default blogger favicon. You can also use these methods to change your favicon at a later time.
