Hi brooksy1,

It's definitely not too late!

To add your own favicon to your site (the little image that appears next to your URL if the browser window):
1. Click on the properties sidebar
2. You will see a "Favourites Icon" field (the second last box from the top). Click on the browse button to the right of the box to browse your desktop for an image to upload.
3. To see what your favicon will look like, save and preview your page.

Please note that Internet Explorer doesn't allow favicons to be displayed next to your URL or on the tab of the window. The favicon will be displayed if the site is bookmarked and in your Favourites folder. The best option would be to change to Firefox who do show the favicons in all three areas!
