Favicons and Gravitars


I’m sure you’ve seen the Microsoft Explorer logo. When it shows up on your browser to the left of the website name, it’s called a favicon (favorite icon).

You can add your own favicon to your blog or website very easily even if you have limited knowledge on how to work with websites or blogs.

All you need to to do is go to this website http://www.chami.com/html-kit/services/favicon/

Simply upload your picture, logo or icon and follow these directions. Then click the Generate Favicon.ico button.

Save the file to your desktop. Open your Notepad and then open the index.html file from your website. Search for the “” code and then load the code within brackets. Upload the the file to your website and after a few days (sometimes as much as a month), your very own favicon will appear on your website rather than the Explorer logo. It’s just one more way to personalize your image on your website and blog.

Now you can add a Gravitar (for your dedicated webmail service such as gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. You can even load your very own picture to the mail service.
