Help!!!

Here is my situation- I really want to re-vamp the image of my blog because I am sick of the boring header and background.

Problem- I am blog retarded. I know how to post, upload pictures and do basic things but as far as creating anything asthetically pleasing for my blog I am clueless. I am in awe of so many of the blogs out there that I follow on a daily basis. So I am asking for your help! Please educate me on how to re-vamp my blog background and header (easiest way possible please).

And, it is Friday so I leave you with a gorgeous picture! Love it!!!!!

I have no help, but it would be nice to see what people have to say, mine is pretty boring!

I'd say the first thing is to take a crack at making a nice header. Maybe find a picture you really love or one that encompases your blog and add some simple text.

A header and the color scheme really helps to tie things together. Then maybe after you have that made test out some of the layout options blogspot offers. See if one gels.

But don't go too crazy on color. If it's really out there it's hard to read.

I hope that helped some.

I revamped my own blog and I used all kinds of tutorial I did by google searches. It took me FOREVER but I finally did it. I had to first go into Adobe Photoshop and create my seamless tile, from there I used this tutorial (http://www.photoshopsupport.com/tutorials/jennifer/blog-templates.html) I hope it helps. If not email me and I can help you more from email, maybe send you my template.

I just found your blog & I love it! Can't wait to read more!

I too am HTML challenged. But, there are sites that make it very easy! The easiest solution: http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/

They give step by step directions on how to use their layouts, which are SUPER easy to install (& very cute!)

For a 3 column look (a little more difficult, but give it a try):

I made my header in PowerPoint because I don't have Photo Shop, and with help from Tips-for-New-Bloggers, I eventually figured it out!

Good luck!
