Add an icon of your site in the Address Bar of Browser.

This is a small hack to add an icon in the address bar when your site/blog is opened.

Like this:

Step 1. Create your icon (.jpg format) and upload it somewhere on net. I prefer PhotoBucket.

Step 2. Open the template and add this code just after the <head> tag.
<link href='your icon URL here' rel='icon' type='image/jpg'/>

Replace your icon URL here by the URL of your logo (which you uploaded in step 1)

Step 3. Save template change and republish your site/blog

Its done.

Right now am using this logo (and I will modify it soon)

I have read this on Techno-Tips.

Good tip, however, if you don't want your icon to look distorted, create the image with a size of 16 pixels by 16 pixels.

You can see how my site icon is not distorted on or take a look at how Google's icon has no distortion.

Hope this helps. :)
