Favicon How Hard Could That Be

I have constantly admired the REAL bloggers out there who figured out how to update their Favicon ICON to not just be a piece of paper or that Blogger B, and I wondered if I could figure out how to do this.

To do it is simple, the code you put in your header is:

link rel="shortcut icon" href="http:/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon"

So that was easy enough, the hard part is creating the icon and then turning it into ICO format!

I used Visio to create a PNG version of my proposed icon and then made sure it was 100×100 pixels and went to a site that did the translation on line and voila it was created, and it looks like this:

Not bad, I’m sure I’ll change it some other time, but I am impressed I did this. Good for me.
