My Blogicon!


Have you ever heard of a Blogicon? I had never heard of them until Cara from RockSTARRMom emailed me. I had always wondered how bloggers got a cool little icon by their web address but figured it was beyond my understanding. Well, it turns out that it still is but that is where RockSTARRMom comes in! She sent me a code and told me step by step how to add it to my layout. It was so easy! She put the little birdie from my header by my web address! Do you see it on your computer? Most people just have an orange box with a B in for Blogger (boring!). I feel so professional now.

She can put anything you want by your web address. She tries to coordinate it with the blog of course. You can go to Your Blogicon and see a list of who she has made one for and see how to get one for yourself. You will love it!

I do like your blogicon! Darcy designed one for me, although she called it a "favicon." I'm so impressed that you did it yourself!
