    That's great. Just noticed it. But it is sad that it accepts .ico files only.

    I appreciate the knowledge in this post because it was exactly what i was looking for. I used Google Sites to upload all of my images since they allow all different types of file formats. These are the links used for my custom favicon using Google Sites, Blogger, & Godaddy Custom Domain Name.
