How to Add a Header

A. Choose a header from the Free Headers.
B. Decide whether you want to use the header As Is or whether you would like to Edit it yourself.

To use the header As Is:
1. Copy the link below the header.
2. Login to your blog and click on Design.
3. This will take you to the “Page Elements” page. Find the rectangle in the middle that says “Header” and click Edit.
4. A window will pop-up. Select From the Web and Shrink to Fit. It is up to you whether you would like the header to be placed behind your title or instead of your title.

5. In the box that says “From the web”, Paste the link.
6. Click Save. Then click View Blog. You’re done!

To Edit the header yourself:
1. Right Click on the picture of the header you would like to use and choose Save Picture As.
2. Choose a folder to save the picture to and click Save.
3. Now, open any editing software that you have. This could include Photoshop, digital scrapbooking software, Picasa, Paint.net or any other basic Paint program. If you know how to use these programs to edit, then you are free to edit the picture as you choose.
4. To add the header to your blog, Login to your blog and click Design.
5. On the “Page Elements” page click Edit from the rectangle labeled “Header”.
6. A window will pop-up. Select From Your Computer, Instead of Title and Description, and Shrink to Fit.
7. Click Browse and find the file where your header was saved.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I would love to answer everyone's questions, but I am a busy mama. I will try my best, but technical questions that require me to study your blog's html are very time consuming for me. I may not be able to answer all of these comments. If you are a reader that knows the answer to a question, please help your fellow readers by offering your advice.
