Head On Over

My blog headers are not super fancy or special, but they are fun and easy to create. Go to ScrapBlog to play around with your own ideas. Most options are free, and you can start with a pre-designed theme or a blank page to create your own look. I made my cute little blog award (see sidebar) there, too. It took all of 4 minutes since I used the pre-made layout. After you have designed your header, save it, publish it (doesn't have to be for all to see, I keep mine private in my own little account), then go to file and export it as a jpeg. Sounds technical, but seriously it is not! Save it in your pictures file on your computer, then you can edit the size to fit your blog in any editing program you use to crop pics.
From there, go into the layout section of your blog and upload your header from your picture file. Snag a free background from one of these great sites to coordinate, and wholah! Your blog has now been customized by yourself!
