  3. Go back to the link icon on your desktop, select it, then press Command+I to view the Get Info window.
  4. Highlight the icon, and press Command+V to paste the blog image.

  1. Extinct-Dodo, you’re welcome!!

    Jacqui, it works with any link (except for Javascripts). I simply prefer a dock link as apposed to a bookmark in the browser because I think blogging needs to be just as accessible as running an application.
