First clear your cache and cookies.

Then notice that there are two different posting modes within Blogger: 'Compose' and 'Edit HTML.' In 'Edit HTML' mode, not all of the formatting icons appear, and this is usually what trips folks up.

6.) How do I add a favicon to my blog?

Once you have created an icon using Favicon from Pics, save it to your computer. You will need to unzip the favicon to your desktop.

Blogger does not support .ico files, so you will need to upload it to a free file host.

To find a free file host enter the keywords “free file host” into your Google search bar, or you can upload your icon to Fileden.com.

Once you have done that, copy the url to your icon.

Next go to your Blogger admin panel and click on the template tab and then on Edit HTML.

Copy and paste the following code into your template.

Replace Your_Favicon_Url with the link to where you stored your icon. Place the above code between the and tags of your blog.

Save the template. Now refresh your page and you should see your icon in the corner of your page.
