Happy October everyone! This month there comes a special event that all bloggers should be participating in to celebrate the creepy and dark month of October. Let's have a fun time this month together as the blogging community comes together to dress up for Halloween. Oh no, you're not the one dressing up. That's right, your blog is going to get dressed up this time around.
Ever heard of dressing up your blog?
I used to do this a lot when holiday time came around. I used to edit my header so that it would match the season and/or holiday. Do you notice anything different with my header now? I'm sure you do because I've completely redesigned it for Halloween. Oh don't worry, it'll be back to its original form when the season is over but for now, I think it suits the site. I had a ton of fun redesigning the header and its really simple, I promise.
1. Go to picmonkey.com to start editing and keep it in a tab on the side
2. Go to another tab and go to your blog. Save your original header so you have the old one to change back to and also a new one to edit. I am assuming you have knowledge of how to change header photos back and forth.
3. Go back to picmonkey and open up your header. Then go to google and download some png overlays or just use the premade overlays for Halloween on the site already. Start placing them where you would like until you're satisfied with the look.
Here's how my header turned out in the end...
I replaced the bee for this creepy and huge pumpkin. Kind of sad that we don't see the bee anymore, but I must keep in mind that it's only going to last for this month! I found all overlays on Google so you can find them there too if you just know what to look up.
And to participate in Blogtober all you have to do is go to someone else's blog and give them a nice trick or treat. Tell them a joke or even compliment their site. Anything that'll help you spread the love and joy of Halloween time on the Blogosphere!
