So what the hell is a favicon anyway? It is an icon associated with a website. A shortcut for favorites icon. You can see the favicon of a website beside their URL in the address bar above.
This blurred and zoomed-in image on the upper left is my favicon.
Why did it took me a year to put it up? My blog publishing site requires an amount for users to be able to upload a favicon. I don't want to pay for that so I ignored it and went on anyway. A couple of days ago, a friend mentioned about having one and I remembered mine. And voila!
My favicon, as you can see, is just a simple 16x16 icon. But there is a deeper meaning for what I created. It's not just a tiny image. For me, a favicon should be an identity of the website it represents.
To start off with my explanation, the square image is for equality and a sense of perfection.
The red color on top means "over hell" (we associate red with hell) and the blue below is for "under heaven" (we associate heaven with blue) -- which is the title of my website. The purple mix in the middle is where we belong -- in between. The diagonal design is for aesthetic purposes.
The letter M, of course, is for my web address -- macaronisupreme. The circle means the never-ending life we have on earth. It also represents the never-ending ideas that this website provide.
The white color simply means purity and clarity. It gives a sense of peace in general. It also represents the color of the font that I am using in every blog entry.
So, my favicon isn't just a tiny image on your browser.
Whenever you visit my website, it should remind you of how deep it really is -- how deep I really am.
