I'd like to create a neat, professional looking block of text to be fixed on the homepage of my blog giving a description of what the blog is about. Having read posts on the forum I have tried the "fixed post" option (see link to homepage below with text in). However, there doesn't seem to be many options for formatting with a fixed post (border, make text a bit more condensed/smaller, etc). I'd like the text to be visible just below the menu, and all above the page fold. Are there any other options someone with more experience can suggest to me?
Thanks for your help in advance.
The blog I need help with is researchandjournal.wordpress.com.
