I know what it’s like to get started. As a blogger myself, I was in beginner’s shoes once. Starting as a new mom who hired a website designer, I quickly discovered that I wanted to make it easy, convenient, and simple for anyone to start their own boss babe empire or develop their passion.
What is a Favicon? A favicon is a small image that represents your site. Most of the time you will see it in the browser’s address bar but you may also see it in the bookmarks. Here’s my cute custom favicon in WordPress.
To get started you will need to have an image that is 512px in width and 512px in height or larger but it needs to be a square. If its smaller then 512px it will look blurry.
