Day Thirteen: Build Your Brand

You blog is getting more focused (and more readers!). Let’s reinforce your image.

Today, create a custom blog icon.

Here’s how:

  1. First, create an icon to represent your blog — a small photo, your initials, or a piece of your header image all work well.
  2. Next, click the button below to reach your blog’s General Settings tab.
  3. Finally, click “Choose File” under the Blog Icon tools on the right to upload your image, and follow the prompts to save it.

You may not have seen this dashboard before. You can find it by typing /wp-admin on the end of your blog’s address. You won’t usually need it — this is a rare occassion.

Go to your General Settings

Remember PicMonkey? Use it to make your blog icon, too! Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.
