Inside BlogBall

If you have a blog on Blogger, this is great fun, dead easy and I owe it all to DancingMorganMouse. Look up at the address window in your browser screen. Do you see a little pink “PG” to the left of the address? I learned today that it’s called a Favicon as in Fave-Icon. Instead of the little orange square with the white Blogger sideways B, I created the pink “PG”. DMM has her little dancing mouse. She got the inside scoop from H&B, who directed us all to i-Tong’s post about how to insert our own favicon. I first tried using my Pink Granite photo, but it wasn’t clear enough. That’s when I made the “PG” instead.

So follow the trail of breadcrumbs from DMM to H&B to i-Tong. Or, if you’re in a hurry and don’t want to take the more enjoyable and scintilating scenic route, jump directly to i-Tong and follow his clear instructions. I’ll be watching the address window and bookmarks to see what you all come up with!

If only I was capable of doing that - it's so cute! I did wonder what it was when I went on DMM .. I couldn't see anything different! So thank you for telling me to look up!!
I blame the baby who is stealing my brains...

Hi Ronnie -
Oh but you are quite capable I'm sure!
It truly was easy peasy!

Sorry to tell DMM, but I had no idea what she was referring to either, until I followed the links and realized what a Favicon was. Then of course I had to have one!

Tell little Sarah she'll have lots and lots of lovely brain power in no time at all, so it's not necessary to steal her Mommy's!
