Have you ever wondered how some web sites put a small logo for their web sites in the address bar next to their web address.
I did, but I found a web page called How to display your web site logo on the address bar and in the favorites list that not only explains how to do it, but also provides a small utility that you can use to convert a pictures into the required .ico file.
I haven’t been using WordPress for all that long so I’m not sure how much of a problem this actually is, but this post How to Stop Your WordPress Blog Getting Hacked over on SEM Labs has some good security measures that are probably a good idea to put in place just in case.
I did what ones I could. Some measures are dependent on where and how you have your blog hosts. I’d suggest doing what you can, make regular backups and hope for the best. 🙂
I still a little new to this whole blogging thing, so I keep my eye out for anything that will help me out. Darren Rowse over at ProBlogger has a great list of Seven Essential Applications For Bloggers Using Windows.
