Wordles and Upgrade's

A few weeks ago I saw these really cool Wordle things on Reflections in the Snow-Covered Hills.

Here is one based on my last post, which honest, I didn't write just to have a post with lots of cool words in it.

In other blog related news, my brother and I are working on a plot to make it possible for me to use the snazzy new blogger templates without playing guess how CSS works - since, I have too much on my plate to spend much time mastering CSS. However, we did manage to get my cool title banner up, but as you can see its a bit of a hack job, since I haven't replaced the actual banner, just made a picture pop up above it with some help from my brother and fair bit of guesswork based on some CSS samples at this site. That said - things may or may not change in the next 2 weeks - I'm going to try hard to keep the URL the same, and hopefully we won't have a repeat of the last time we played with my blog which required me to reattach every picture I ever posted to their respective posts manually - which took probably in excess of 20 hours over several weeks and we nearly lost the whole thing (not to mention that my URL was snapped up by a BOT and I never managed to retrieve it.....) Well, hopefully this time things will go smoother and the tools at my disposal will be worth any hassle in the interim - but if I disappear off the face of the internet... I promise to claw my way back as soon as possible.

The banner looks good.

You should be able to replace the text header with your photo. In the layout section, go into the header section and select the option for a photo instead of the title and description.

Thanks :D.

LOL.. my problem is that I don't have access to the layout page currently because I'm not hosted at blogspot currently. I tried a variety of things to get the picture as a background and then have the original text float over-so I wouldn't loose the link back to my main page - but I don't have a good enough grasp of the template programming language to do more than dabble.... so for now this sort of works and hopefully.. I'll move back to blogspot and then for sure.. I'll be able to do a lot of things better and make good use of your tip. :D
