Do you see it? It no longer says CraftyHope.BLOGSPOT.com. My blog is now simply CraftyHope.com!!
We've owned the url for a while now and just used it on my Tumblr because they had free hosting. Well, while I was at the blogger's conference on Tuesday, Debbie of Flower Child Designs mentioned that she has a Blogger blog and only pays a minimal amount to have her own URL on it. With further research, I realized that I too could have Blogger direct my blog to the url that I already own. WHAT!? I was able to do this by going to the basic settings page for my blog and adjusting the publishing option.
Now, let me apologize for the hokey welcome sign above, but I wanted to work in the little flowers as those are now my favicon. What's a favicon you ask? According to Google, it's "an icon associated with a URL that is variously displayed, as in a browser's address bar or next to the site name in a bookmark list."
To me, they are just the cute little pictures next to the site names in my browser. To illustrate:
Yup, it's a cute daisy I created in Photoshop and added to the favicon option in Blogger. You'll find that option at the top of the layout page of blogger.
And that's that.
I've got some other changes I want to make on the blog, but Blogger's not cooperating right now. I think I might have given it whiplash or something. Oh well, tomorrow's another day and predicted to be a rainy one at that. I might get even more accomplished. Here's hoping.
