Did you ever notice that little picture next to the name of the site you are viewing?
It has a techy name - Favicon, which stands for Favorite Icon.
Want to create your own? Here is what I did:
Step 1: Open up PicMonkey and upload an image (in my case, my blog button).

You need a site to convert your .png file to a .ico file. When I did a Google search I found this site:
Step 4: Convert to a .ico file

Done!! Admire your work:)

Linking up to these great parties:)
