As you might notice, I’ve got a favicon, a small picture, on my blog. Here’s what it looks like in Firefox:

It’s actually pretty simple to implement in Blogger. To do it, you’ll need to have somewhere to store the favicon file. Favicons are imagefiles (dimensions 16 by 16 pixels) ending in .ico. Apparently, Tripod offer free hosting, and they support .ico files. Once you’ve got your favicon ready, and uploaded, you need to open the administration page for your blog, and then go to the “Layout” tab, opening the “Edit HTML” subtab. You’ll then see a page looking something like this:
Find the <head> tag, and insert the following snippet of code immediately below it:

<link href=’’ rel=’shortcut icon’ type=’image/x-icon’/>

Save the template, and voilà, it’s ready.
