Here are steps for you to follow...just as promised, Mason!
First, I would recommend that you have your blog open in two screens: one to see these instructions and two to make your changes.
Here we go...
- At the top of your blog, click on either "Customize" or "Dashboard."
- Click on "Settings."
- Click on "Layout."
- Under "Nav" bar...in header...click on edit. Here you can change the title of your blog and add a descriptor. You may also insert your image into your header. See IDK, MY BFF JiLL?! for an example. When finished, select save.
- Next click on "Add a Gadget" (should be on the left or right hand side...depends on which layout you choose). Select the gadgets that you want to display down the sidebar of your blog. Again, select save.
- Under the word layout, select "Fonts and Colors." Have fun and click save to activate changes.
