Add Your Favicon To Blogger Blog

I've seen many blogs around having other favicon rather than the usual blogger one displayed as below, blogger favicon is the third one (the B in an orange square.. obvious :D)



Mine are the green $ (dollar sign), and as I like to open tons of tabs having my own favicon helps me to see where I've open my own Cpayscom2 Online Casino blog. The favicon is also displayed on the address bar. And if somebody bookmark my blog it will look like this



The first one I bookmarked my homepage that is http://cpayscom2onlinecasino-seocontest.blogspot.com/, no need to explain all this I think you already how bookmarks work :p

Ok let's get serious now.. how to add your favicon to blogger?
You will need to edit your blog template a little bit.

Your template should look a bit like this:



I don't see any difference whether you add it before or after or if you have meta tags you add it just after the meta tags.
You can use any type of image it will be resized automatically to fit in the favicon space which is 16*16 pixels. And you are done! Now you have your own favicon. Hurray :D

You need to remove "image link" and replace it with you favicon url and ".../type" with the type of your image i.e. png or jpeg or gif. I tried to add the code without the type= part and it still works, if you have any problem adding your favicon, it's better not to add that part.

I will create a little tutorial some other time how to create 16*16 pixels favicon with transparent background (you will need some good image editing softwares for that). I use PSP (Paint Shop Pro), sorry but photoshop is a bit too expensive for me :p
----------
Answer to some questions you might have :D
Q:Why you choose a dollar sign?
A:It matches my main blog theme (Cpayscom2 Online Casino) and my template.. green :p

Q:Why you wrote this little favicon tutorial?
A:Just to help others, I know many people out there want to have their own favicon for their blogger blog but can't find much info out there on how to do it.

Q:What can I do to help?
A:hmmm you can link to my blog or to this tutorial if you find it interesting :)
----------
Hope my favicon tutorial helped you, if there is anything to change or something to add just drop me a line ;)

I simply love Online casino, I play every day and I keep coming back for more.
I am not a problem gambler because I earn enough money to be able to support
myself and continue my online gambling time. I truly enjoy the relaxation time I
get and the ease with which can use and access online casino's. I hate the
stigma that is associated with gambling online as I view it as a release, an
escape and real "me" time. If it were to become a problem then I have no doubt
that I could and would simply cut online casino from my daily vocabulary. As it
stands though, gambling is simply something I enjoy and the internet and online
play are just a good way to access casino's. Playing against the house means I
never have to worry or feel about actually taking money from someone else as it
is only the online casino that would be paying me off for my wins. Talking about
wins, I have had some great wins in my online gambling career – my biggest so
far is $5000 on roulette, on one spin. I am fit, happy, healthy and I love life
and the online casino is just part of my every day existence and escape.

Technology is ever increasing in the online world and Online businesses are
springing up every second to get on board the information super highway - "The
World Wide Web". We already have online auctions which have played a major role
in efficiency for everyday consumers to get bargain based products from all
areas of the world, but now we are faced with a new dilemma, Online Gambling and
online casinos. As a concerned member of the human race, I'm not sure that
Online gambling would be a legitimate business that benefits us as a society.
The big questions is, are the positives of online gambling greater than the
negatives?

Casino, Pokies, Bingo, slots and gambling centers all around the world are
already the cause of many family breakdowns and financial woes. Now we're taking
it to the next level – going online for our gambling. With the rate of young
adults participating in global gaming communities, by the billions, Gaming
companies are encountering a massive profit / money making facility just by
traditional arcade game play – which is absolutely fine. However, now parts of
the world are investing heavily in developments of Online Gambling and Online
Casino software to target global hopefuls in chances of winning their Million
dollars or their Austin Martins. How are we to monitor companies that provide
online gambling facilities? In some countries under developed countries, hungry
scheming predators are lurking about waiting for the next 'big idea' in ripping
consumers and the wonderful world wide web offers to do that. Where else can you
build a money making machine that can directly be linked to an offshore business
account in the British Virgin Islands and be able to people off? Online Casinos
are a major threat to our global socio economics and are a nuisance to the
Online community and the community at large. If I want to gamble I'd spend my
money and go to Las Vegas, instead of typing in my Credit card details and stare
at my laptop hoping to win money. Say no to Online Gambling and Online Casinos.
I sure did.

The mathematics of online gambling are always against the individual. There
is no way that a professional gambler could ever say otherwise and yet how come
there are people that make money every day playing and gambling online every
day? Simply, they employ good strategies that work more in their favour than the
average person. The main goal of the professional gambler is to either target
weaknesses in online gambling or online casino's or play the other people off
and win their money. The professional gambler is not bothered by the winning or
the losing they simply focus on how they can win more and the best methods to
employ in order to get to their goal. Bet big to recoup loses is a good method,
a simple and yet effective method which can be employed on the roulette table by
betting on red or black in roulette. The method is simple, if you lose then
double up the bet and repeat until you win, then go back to the original amount
and then repeat until you are winning consistently. Another method on roulette
is taking a section of the wheel, like betting on a row of numbers next to each
other. That way if the wheel lands in a region consistently then there is
greater chance of it being on one of your numbers instead of on random text.
