I realised the other day that I had never changed my favicon on my blog. As I am currently getting my blog to a level of professionalism. It meant that I had to change the Blogger favicon to my own.
Not everyone has Photoshop on their computer, especially if you are starting out. I don’t have the software as my computer is so old, loading Photoshop will just cause it to break and I need my laptop to survive another year. So I found PicMonkey instead! Here is a little tutorial on how to make a favicon using PicMonkey.
What is a favicon?
A favicon is a little image at the top tab where your blog title is (yep I had to ask my partner what one was first).
How to create the favicon:
Open up PicMonkey and click on design.
Select a plain background and click text. Add the initials of your blog into the background. Increase the text size so it is as large as possible.
Save the image as a JPEG I saved mine in size 100x100px
Open up Blogger.
Go to the layout on the left-hand side of the site.
Click it and then click on edit on the Favicon section which is at the top of the page.
Upload the favicon and save.
Your favicon should now work. You may need to clear the cache if it doesn’t show immediately although oddly enough it took a few days for mine to show through.
