This is probably really basic how to do, but I'm trouble with the header on my blog.
I want it longer than it is, and the page to be wider. How do I do it?

I've (finally) just started my blog. Does anyone have any comments or tips they could share with me on how I might improve its look, functionality, traffic, or anything else?

Thanks in advance

thanks a lot sydney girl!!!

for anyone who likes to custom interface their layouts or blogs; i like to go to this site to get inspiration & even find different scripts for letter spacing or layout formatting. thought it would be helpful for anyone starting out. for the most part, HTML is just reading.

here is the link i mentioned.

If you are using blogspot, the reason your images are being cropped is because the image width is larger than the table width of your blog. You can either edit your layout to fit larger images or resize the images.

You can upload your images on Flickr to get different sized images quickly or simply resize the images using code which links to the larger image. Make sure the dimensions are proportionate, otherwise your images will be skewed.

http://www.blogpatrol.com

It is a bit slow to load, but it is very informative. Includes most popular search words, how they got to your blog, when the left, what browser they are using, screen resolution, oh and IP address among other things...

I would recommend making your title image/header smaller. The height of your current image is 702 pixels, maybe cut it in half at least? Otherwise this is the only thing readers first see. Most browsers are 1024 x 768, meaning your header image alone would take up the entire screen.
