How to make great blog header

How to make great blog header

Yay! I did it. I changed the look of Blogger Sentral blog header. Now instead of boring, flat, amateurish looking title text, I’ve upgraded it to a 3D, polished look –more pleasing to the eyes than the previous one (at least I think so).

It’s not as hard as I thought. At one time I thought of using GIMP to make it, but the lack of good looking fonts stopped me half way. I know fonts can be imported into GIMP, but.. too much of a hassle just to pimp the title.

I was just about to give up with this make-my-blog-title-look-good thing, until yesterday that is.

Yesterday I found this cool site, appropriately named It’s a free online graphics generator, no need to sign-up or anything. I made mine with just a few simple steps.

So today I’m going to write about how to make or design a blog title and and then replace the existing title with it. Here are the steps:

  • Design the blog title using
    1. Choose your logo style, there are many styles available. Choose the one you think best for your blog. Blogger Sentral uses Cool Metal style. You’ll then transferred to Design-Your-Logo page
    2. Here you choose the font, text size, colors etc. You also need to specify the output file format. (For Blogger Sentral I chose no background and the output file in .png format).
    3. After specifying all the parameters, click on Render Logo button, wait for a while and then wallah, your text comes out.
    4. Download it. If you don’t like it you can edit it, over and over again.
  • Replace the existing title with the new one.
    1. Go to Dashboard > Layout > Page Elements
    2. Click the Edit link at bottom right hand corner of Header widget box.
    3. Select Image > From your computer. Click Browse to select the file that you’ve downloaded. Under Placement, select “Instead of title and description” option.
    4. Click save, and then View blog.
    Hey, that’s it. Enjoy!
