Adding a favicon to your hosted blog (New HiR Logo)

I thought it was about time for a logo and a favicon.

I'm no graphics designer, so it's pretty simple. Just not as simple as a block of text. 

Just because you've got a blog hosted at Blogger or even Wordpress, it doesn't mean you can't have a custom favicon logo as pictured left.  Simply make a 16x16 pixel image then use GIMP or another image tool to save it in Windows ICON format (with a .ico extension) and then find a place to host the image. Flickr works, for example.  Then, in the blog HTML template, add the following block of code near the top of the template, after <head>  and before </head> , replacing the URL to the HiR favicon to the URL of your image hosted elsewhere. 

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/ico" href="http://stuff.h-i-r.net/favicon.ico">
