The Big Impact: Sidebar Header Images

Bigimpact

Welcome to our series on making small changes that are guaranteed to help level up your blog's look. Every other week we’ll debut a new post, profiling some great blogs for inspiration that employ Typepad's built-in features. We'll also offer up tips and tricks that can help improve your blog's appeal, gain new readers, and build a more engaged community. Check out our other posts in the series here!

Today we continue our series on how making small changes to your blog can leave a lasting impression on your readers. Besides using the Theme Builder and custom banners creatively, another way to personalize your blog appearance is using images as your sidebar headers.

It is very easy to add an image to your sidebar.  The examples shared today are blogs showing how customizing their sidebar headers using images ties in to their business brand to keep a cohesive look.

First is photographer Violet Short's blog Blythe Ponytail Parades where she applies simple and delicate text images with a thin border around it to tie in to her classic, whimsical design.

Next we have Graphic Designer Amanda Rose Zampelli who keeps a color palette of hot pink and a unique shade of seafoam green to show off her fresh and playful style.
