Help make my blog beautiful!

There are some beautiful blogs out there. Some have elegant but simple headers, like Book-a-rama. Others really exude their owner's personality, such as Lotus Reads and Bookgirl's Nightstand.


I would love to add some images in my header and make a nice, pretty background, but I don't know how.

Anyone willing to volunteer to teach me?

*Waves* Hey, that's me!

I found my template by Googling 'free blogger templates'. After checking out a bunch of sites I found this one:

http://www.finalsense.com/services/blog_templates/3columns_blogger_templates.htm

They have the instructions on how to install it on their site. I'm not very techy myself so I needed that help. Also be prepared to lose much of your sidebar. I had to save a lot of stuff on my computer before attempting the change and then add it all back in. It's a pain so I won't be changing things any time soon.

A simpler way of adding a little personality is to go into your dashboard on your blogger sign in page and click on Layout. You can fiddle around with the Fonts and Colors. You might also want to check this out if you want to add a pic to the header:

Good luck!

Another site that has some great templates, including 3 column, is:

When you change, though, you'll lose your sidebars.

You are too sweet. I wish I could help but I owe the look of my blog to my husband.
Maybe you could just add a picture in the header? I know some bloggers do that and it looks really nice - right now I'm thinking of Heather of a High and Hidden Place. I think she changes out her banner quite a bit and it's fun to see that. Anyway, it looks like Chris and 3M chimed in with some good suggestions! Good luck and have some fun. Can't wait to see what you come up with :)

Chris and 3m - Thank you!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. It's good to know about the sidebars, so I can prepare for that.

Iliana - I do want to add a picture to the header, but I didn't know how to do that, but Chris gave me a very helpful link. I'm hoping to make changes sometime before the end of the month, but it's hard right now to be able to set aside enough time to do it all at once!
