Creating a favicon is a pain. I somehow don’t like to work in that 16×16 area. It’s too small. More over they don’t serve much purpose however I was partially persuaded by friends to create one. After getting some more inspiration from Matt Cutts, it was time to find the easiest way out. After some research and reading stuff at ProBlogger, Photo Matt and Alex King, I decided to use the favicon generator at Dynamic Drive as it allowed me to create icon in multiple sizes.
I decided to do a portrait favicon as all I needed to do was upload the photo :D. I used IrfanView to crop my image, swapped the colors to make the image look blue, similar to the theme. Dynamic drive did the rest
