My Favatar

My Favatar  is a new web tool service which provides free hosting for your favatar and favicon. To register is simple, you will be asked for username, password, and email address. After that you will receive an email to verify your account.

What is Favatar?
Do you know what favatar is? Favatar constitutes to Favorite Avatar. If you post a comment somewhere to other blog, then you will see your Favatar displayed next to your comment. A comment form will need your name, your email address, and your site URL. Just remember to submit the same email address that you use when you register to Favatar. By this way, your Favatar will always active even your blog is not in the same platform with the blog that you commented on.

What is Favicon?
Favicon is Favorite Icon displayed on your browser tabs and at the left hand corner of the URL address bar. It is important to have a favicon logo to build identity for your blog or site.

The favicon file ends with .ICO and if you have a blog or site hosted in a prepaid web hosting service, it will be easy for you to upload your file. But if your blog platform is free, it is rather difficult for you to find free hosting for favicon.
My Favatar allows you to upload your favicon in different graphic format. Just upload your 32×32 pixel size graphic logo (the format should be: .BMP, .GIF .PNG or .JPG.) to My Favatar, and get this code to install:

The words “your image name” should be the same with your image name and copy then paste in before the < / head> tag on your blog HTML template to install.
Refresh your blog, see the result and clap your hands ;D
