Blog Header 101

Good Afternoon, blog friends! This post is a little different. I have been getting a lot of questions about my new header and how I did it exactly. Instead of replying to everyone’s emails I am just posting this for everyone to see! I bring you…

How to Configure a New Header In Blogger!


I’m pretty sure that wordpress and other blog programs are different, but I know this works for Blogger because I did it. 😀

Here goes…

1.Before you get started you want to create your header in a program such as “Paint” (that is what I used). Make sure that is about the same size as your current header… in my case long horizontally and short vertically.If not it will look weird and might mess up the look of your page altogether. Save the file and remember the name of the file.

Note: To change the size of the image in Paint, you cannot simply zoom in and out. You must go to Image: Resize/Skew. To make it longer horizontally, make the Horizontal number bigger (like 150% or something) and just play around with it until you figure out the sizing you want.


2. Login to your Blogger account. Click on the “Layout” button up near the top

3. Wherever your header is, Hit “Edit”


4. A little box like this one should come up. (or something similar) Hit “Browse” and find the file you want to make your header, and select that. You then choose the placement. I did mine “instead of the title and description” but you can do whatever you prefer.

If your header image is not the size that you need, make sure you hit “shrink to fit’”( I didn’t have to do this because I made sure that my file was the right size). Then, hit “save”.

image5. Check to make sure that it saved and that should be it!

Hopefully this wasn’t too confusing and at least sort of helpful. Let me know if you have any more questions about it!

  3. Thanks girl! I always wondered how to do that! Hopefully I will find some time to try it soon!!

  4. Thanks for the posting. I am actually paying another blogger to help me with my header because I am truly inept lol, but I am still in awe of your ability to do all this on your own – the recipe page, etc.

    Personally, I don't care for blogger and I think wordpress would have been a better choice but alas it's too late now.

    Props to you for being so good at all this stuff!

  5. Thank you! Sorry I was such a bug-a-b00 about it, lol 🙂 I'll be working on that this weekend!

  6. Thanks! I will be "pimping my blog" this weekend, so this is very helpful!

  7. Thank so you much for this! I am such a computer dunce- it's a serious miracle that I managed to launch a blog without any help, even with something as easy as Blogger. I desperately need a good header so I will definitely be using these tips.
