Haunted Blog Background Freebie

2-Column Blog Background

3-Column Blog Background

To use one of this blog background for the first time, follow these steps:

1. The first time you use a blog background, you should set your blog template to 'Minima.' To do this, log in to to your blog and click on 'customize' in the top right corner.

2. Now that you're in the 'customize' screen, click on the 'Pick New Template' tab in the upper left part of the screen. Click on 'Minima.' (The first one there, not Minima Ochre, or Blue, just plain white Minima.) Then save that template choice. (You won't have to do this every time you use add a blog background from my blog, just the first time.)

3. Next, click back onto the 'page elements' tab.

4. Click on 'add a gadget' (in the right column)

5. Then find the 'html/java script' option and click on that.

6. Copy and paste this code into the content:
<style>body {background-image: url(direct link); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }</style>

7. Now, find your favorite background from my site, and copy and paste the link below it between the parenthesis where it says (direct link) (make sure and leave the parentheses there. Just copy and paste the "direct link" text)

8. Click "save" and you're done!

To change your background just 'edit' the html/java script gadget that originally used to add the background and then change the direct link like you did the first time. Voilá! It's finished!
