  • You've learned how to locate blogs of interest and you've even created your own blog!  Now let's take the customization of your blog beyond what the Blogger Template Designed can do!
    • Use a Pre-Designed HTML template
    • Create Your Own Custom Header Image
      • Step 1: Create an image for your header.  (I like Picnik.)
      • Step 2: Upload that image to your Blogger template.
      • Click here to see how it's done.
    • Add Stand-Alone Pages to Your Blog (About Me, Contact Me, Homework...)
    • Add a Custom Signature to Blog Posts
      • Step 1: Create a custom signature (you can use Picnik or try out MyLiveSignature)
      • Step 2: Upload it to a hosting site like Flickr or Photobucket so it has a unique URL.
      • Step 3: Insert a piece of code (shown in instructions below) and the image URL to your blog template code.
