Image Icon before post titles

If you are thinking to add image in your blog post title then follow the instructions:

Add Image Icon Before Post Titles

2. From dashboard select Layout then go to Edit HTML.

3. Before Editing template, save full template for safety. If You are beginner to edit html then see my another post Blogger tips on how to edit HTML.

4. Put a check in expand widgets box.Search for the following code in your Blogger Template:

<b:if cond='data:post.url'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a>

Now if you want to add image before post titles then add image url below the red line. After adding that it looks same as below:

<b:if cond='data:post.url'>
<img src="Your image URL here"/>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a>

If you want to add image after post titles then add image url after this tag: <a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a>
After adding that it looks same as following code:

<b:if cond='data:post.url'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a>
<img src="Your image URL here"/>

@ Joanie,
First of All, resize your Image as small one. You can use "Paint" in Windows, Photoshop or Illustrators software to do that.
