The blog was a bit sparse last week thanks to a nasty cold that decided to descend upon my house and park itself here for about five days.  Now that I am feeling back to normal, the blog will get back to normal.  

I have made many changes to my blog since I started it.  I’m always tweaking it and changing things around.  I have spent many hours on Google to figure it all out. Most of these changes are fairly simple and some require a small amount of knowledge of html.  In order to share the knowledge that I have gained (and hopefully help some of you out), I have decided to start a series on blogging tips. Every Monday, I will focus on a different tip. Last week I did a post on how to change your settings so you are not a “no-replycomment” blogger. Today, I will be teaching you how to customize your favicon.

Go to your blog’s layout page.
In the upper left, there is the Favicon gadget.  Click on “edit”
