A Very Easy Way to get a Favicon

I always wanted a Favicon (which stands for Favorites Icon), for my blog. It's the cute little icon you see next to a website's name. But I never knew how to go about getting one.

I did some research on it. I read a few posts on other people's blogs on how to do it. I was still lost. I'm not very good with html codes. I get nervous messing around with my template too much. And I have no clue how to unzip a zipped file. Which is all things you had to do according to what I read on how to get a Favicon. (By the way if anyone can explain unzipping files, that would be cool.)

After trying all that, I found a website that makes it very simple. It's Free Favicon Generator. You can either make one from one of your own pictures, or you can browse their gallery and use one of theirs. There are other websites that do the same thing, but they require you to download the file, save it, open it, etc. I could not figure out how to get it to work. With the Free Favicon Generator all you had to do was pick your favicon and then they give you the code to put in your blog.

All you have to do it copy and paste the code they give you and put it directly under the head tag in your template. Save template and you have your favicon! It was so easy, even I could do it. I had a heart, but just changed it to an "S" for STAY AT HOME MOM, or Sue for my name. I guess I'll keep that for now. Do you like it?
