I just got a favicon...#2

Ok. I wrote this post earlier yesterday, posted it, and realized that it had two different fonts in it. I tried to change the fonts and BAM! It suddenly wouldn't edit some things.

So I'm trying again. (I'm sorry Blushing Hostess, but your lovely comment was deleted in the mayhem!)

Here's what I did:

1. Built a file in photoshop or illustrator at 16 x 16 pixels

2. Saved it as a .png

3. Converted it to a .ico on this website . (you don't have to sign up for anything)

4. Uploaded it to this website . (Again, NO signing up)

5. Clicked on layout, edit HTML.

6. Found this line of code near the top :

7. Put this code underneath:


This website is where I found the last two steps - they have tons of great stuff for bloggers.


  1. Sorry I had to use pics as the code so that it was hard to copy/paste. Something really screwy was going on and it wouldn't let me type in HTML code!

    As you can tell, I am NOT technically savvy. So if I could figure THIS out, anyone can!

  2. I can't thank you enough Amanda for bringing this website to my attention. My son and I have been struggling with so many blog issues and now you've directed us to a website that can finally address all the issues in one place. I'm so grateful!!!!
    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!
    How's the show going?
    Have a wonderful day :)

  3. Found out another tidbit of info. In a blogroll, the icon beside it will ALWAYS be a blogger icon if you use blogger because they grab the icon off of a server, and not off of your HTML code.

    I've been going insane trying to get my icon to show up on other people's lists, but with no luck. Now I know it's impossible!
