Blog icon, site icon …

A student asked about the blog icon I mention in the StartUpExercises:

On the checklist it said to add a blog icon, but I can’t seem to figure out what that is. What exactly should I be looking for?

I dug around and found that WP has changed the term.  It’s now called a site icon.  See this page on WordPress Support: five step blog setup.  It’s a small square icon that appears in the browser address bar.
It’s not necessary to have a site icon, but it helps visitors distinguish your blog from others in their bookmarks and elsewhere.

    I had fun with this. I just made it a smaller version of the header image from my blog’s cover page. My thought was that it would be more recognizable/familiar for people who have visited my blog before.
