    hey guys, i should let you know i have no clue what the hell i’m doing. but my blog right now looks like this:

    http://notesoflife.wordpress.com/

    and i want the top to look like this, without changing anything else:

    what should i do? i’ve tried that kubrickr thing but it crops that picture, and i’m not sure i want to buy the css editor yet if it won’t let me do what i want, plus i have absolutely no experience with css.

    First of all you need to pick a theme that allows you to use a custom header

    http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/07/08/which-themes-can-i-add-a-header-image-to/

    Dusk isn’t one of them.

    After you change your theme to one that supports a Custom header, there’s a place under Presentation in the dashboard where you can upload your custom header. Be warned that it has to be the size mentioned on that FAQ page.
