Favicon ~ Thank you Grace

Good afternoon Folks ~ It’s a few minutes after 4 p.m. EST. It is partly cloudy.  We only got a few sprinkles from Emily, and she is headed back out to sea.  We do have some clouds over head right now which look rain laden so I’m hoping they will drop some rain here.

This past week Grace of ‘Gardening with Grace’ posted directions on how to add a tiny flower to your address bar in place of Blogger’s orange B. I finally took the time today to do it.  You can read her post here.

I chose a square photo resized it to 32 x 32 pixels saved it as a jpg then loaded it with the favicon button on the top of my design page. Remember to save the page.  It showed up there, but not in the address bar or on my blogger tab. I restarted my computer and that didn’t do the trick either.  I searched for reasons and found a couple of ideas.  The first one I tried worked, empty my internet cache. 

I chose the following picture:

I am happy with the results and want to say thanks to Grace for sharing this tip on her blog.

Well, we are getting RAIN.  Didn’t get nary a drop from Emily and now this with some wind and thunder and lightning.  I am thankful.

I was out hand watering and doing some weeding in my main garden this morning and the sweat was pouring off my eyelashes.  Sheesh! I quit and came inside for a nice drink of water and to relax.  I can continue another day.

Nice picture. Glad you're getting rain! I know what you mean about continuing another day when the sweat starts dripping off. I've been doing a lot of that lately, too.

Lots of helpful information here! Thank you for giving us the benefit of all your favicon-trial-and-error. Sweat pouring off your eyelashes? How hard you must have been working! I do hope the thunder and lightening have refreshed everything and you sleep well tonight after your endeavours :-) Jane Gray

Hey, you are more updated in IT than me! I saw the Favivon option but haven't done anything yet. Were you successful with yours? I wonder if it is my computer problem because I can't see your favicon.

I enjoy doing hand watering and hand weeding. Wishing you a good night's sleep today. It is 6:10am for me here.

I have been watching you on the weather and you either are getting heat or rain. The humidity gets to be too much. Wonderful flower.

thank goodness! no hurricanes!

That's so cool! I had been wondering what that favicon was.

Yahoo for the rain! It's good to hear you're getting some even if it's not from Emily ... what a shame she didn't want to share some with you.

Your favicon is working brilliantly. Nice choice!

Grace said...

Ooh,I love it! Great job. I'm so glad you're getting rain.

I am so happy you got rain! It must feel great to relinquish the hose duty... That flower on top is a really nice touch, maybe I will do it too, thanks for the idea!

I have started wearing a sweat band(one of DH's old red bandanna handkerchiefs) around my head if I have to be out very long. If I don't the sweat runs into my eyes and stings.

I love the new flower in place of the B.

Hey Flowerlady, Bloggers are such a helpful lot...always sharing helpful information with each other. Do stay indoors in the heat of the day...it's brutal out there.

Now I know what a favicon is. Never noticed or heard of it before. Very nice work on yours. Pink Pet is so pretty and photogenic. Stay cool and hope you get lots accomplished. Can't wait to see the results when you get back to posting.
