Customizing with favicon (favorite icon)
All blogs using the standard Blogger template will have a little icon in the address bar and also in the browser tab. The icon in the shape of a b for Blogger is the same for all blogs using the Blogger platform. That little icon is called a favicon which is short for favorite icon.
You can easily customize your blog to have your own favicon like I have done for mine where I use my profile photo as my own favicon to replace the Blogger standard favicon (see screen shot below):
If you want to have your own favicon for your blog, please refer to free favicon generator and host. If you have installed it using the instructions the but one fine day find it missing, refer to fix for "missing" favicon
Rather than doing a new post, I thought I would just refer you to posts I have already published rather than inventing the wheel. However, if you find the instructions I gave in the 2 posts above, please leave a comment and I will redo this whole article.
