My Favicon

Posted by : foongpc | Tuesday, July 1, 2008 | Published in


The other day, a blogger asked me why I did not install a favicon.
Favi-what? I blurted out.
Knowing full well that I am a newbie and a complete dummy at internet and blogging, he repeated the word.
It seems that favicon stands for Favourites Icon.
OK, so I learnt something new. I didn’t even know such a word or such a thing exist! Favicon is a website icon associated with a particular website or webpage. If you are one of those who don’t know anything about favicon, do read it at Wikipedia.
Anyway, if you notice, I’ve added a favicon right next to the URL on my blog above. I used the alphabet F for my favicon for a number of reasons.
F stands for many things like ....
FOONG – which is my name of course.
FIRST – which is my first attempt at blogging, and my blog is known as My Very FIRST Blog.
FREQUENT – which is how often I try to post on my blog. Of course, the definition of “frequent” is different for different people, er, I mean bloggers. But let me get this straight out – anyone who posts on his or her blog six times a day is a total loony!
FANCY – which is what I post ie. any topic I fancy! Except topics that can possibly put me behind bars – that’s a big NO NO!
FRIENDLY – I’m friendly, and I welcome all bloggers to read my blog and leave comments! However, I may not be as friendly off line. Haha!
FACTS – I write mostly facts, but not all the time. Sometimes I write nonsense, but you will be able to differentiate between the two .... I hope!
FAMOUS – Not me, but my Blogroll list contains some of the most famous bloggers in Malaysia. Notice I said some, so please don’t be too pleased if you are in my Blogroll. By the way, I don’t like to call it Blogroll. I call it Recommended Blogs.
FANATIC – That’s me, a fanatic at blogging. Or a blogging addict. That includes not just posting blogs but reading blogs!
FREE – My blog is free to read, and you are free to subscribe and free to comment. Please do, please!!
FENG SHUI – Not that I’m an expert, but I may want to blog about feng shui in future. That should give both Lillian Too and Joey Yap a run for their money!
FAVOURITE – Blogging is my favourite past time. So is eating and sleeping.
FASHIONABLE – I definitely don’t mean my blog’s layout. I mean blogging is the trend, it’s fashionable to blog nowadays.
FARAWAY- Yes, my blog can be read from as far as England, or Africa or Mexico. In fact, anywhere as long as you can get online.
FITNESS – I’m into fitness, I like to be fit and I want to be fit. But I’m not there yet, so what to do? Blog about fitness, that’s the next best thing!
F#^K – OK, this is a bad word, but a word is still a word, bad or otherwise. You can add words to this word like F#^k-off, F#^k-up, F#^k- it!, What d F#^k?! Please do not use this word in its proper spelling on my blog because my blog is ahem!…read by children too.
But leaving comments like “This is a f#^king good post!” is perfectly acceptable.

    F is an alphabet which has been maligned due to the 4 letter swear word :)

    meehoon, hmm, maybe I should post at FARK too.

    neo, yes I forgot F also stands for FCUK : )

    bengbeng, ok I check up the word 'maligned' in the dictionary and it's not good. But WTF, will still use it as my favicon.

    nadzri, excuse me dude, is this a spam or what? Not relevant to topic lah!
