Finding yourself on the address bar of your browser

Hi, I learnt something new today. Ever felt bored with that letter 'B' on your blog?



Want to change it to something you like, or perhaps maybe put your own face there? xD


Well, this is how to do it. First, design your own picture. Make sure your picture is a square. After designing, resize it to 20x20 pixels.

Upload to photobucket.

Then, go to your blog design> Edit HTML.

look for <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>  (you can use ctrl+f to find texts)


Right below that line, paste this code

<link href='PICTURE-URL-HERE' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/vnd.microsoft.icon'/>


'PICTURE-URL-HERE' url can be obtained after uploading your photo through photobucket.

Hope this was helpful and creative. =)

I learnt this technique from Isaac Yassar. Credits to him. =)
