Tommy asks: "How did you put that image into your blog header?"
After you sign in and see your Dashboard, choose "Design" from the underlined choices to the right of the "New Post" button. That takes you to "Add and Arrange Page Elements", where you will see a frame under the solid blue Navbar for the Title (and description) of your blog, with (Header) after it, and a button marked "Edit". Click on that "Edit".
That brings up the smaller window (upper left) to "Configure Header", showing what you now are using for your blog title and any related description of it. Just below that part, you should see an invitation to add an image from your files or some other source like the web. For mine (above) it invites me to remove the image, or change how it is placed in relation to the title and description.
The image you choose shouldn't be too big, but it does accept some fairly big ones. Mine being a pano was much too big at first, and the system couldn't resize it down to fit until I reduced it a little on several tries, until I got it to the biggest size the program would accept, and just nicely fit the page to match the width of the main text block. When I got it to fit, it was down to 924 by 325, which fits very nicely. Don't forget to click on the little "Save" button to lock in your changes before you close those windows. That should do it for you - you should now have a nice image behind your title header.
