New Look (aka HELP!)

OK, so Bookworm Readers has a new look. I'm not positive that I absolutely love it yet, but I felt like the blog was in need of a little summertime makeover (we'll see how long that feeling lasts).
However, I (the technologically challenged) need some help:

a) I custom-made the banner from a "Cutest Blog on the Block" freebie, but for some reason it came out too short. Does anyone know how to make it longer to fit the standard Blogger header?

b) My sidebar is really crowded, and I'd like to expand into a 3-column format...but how exactly do I do that? HELP!!!!

c) Any other comments, questions, and advice is gladly accepted. Just leave a comment below!

A) I used a freebie from Cutest Blog for my header too. I used fotoflexer.com to make it bigger.

B) There's actually a post on Cutest Blog for adding another sidebar, it can be found here. It's really easy to follow.

Hope that helps! :)

Check out Blogger Buster. However, if you REALLY need it, I can make a layout for you - I just want you to try yourself first. =]

Blogger just came out with a whole awesome new layout designer, so I would highly suggest giving that a try. It is truly helpful : )

Check out draft blogger!
It's a godsend.
BTW, this is a two column layout and you will need to pick a new background. But draft blogger makes that so easy :)

If you want to make the post width larger like my blogs, go to Inspired Designs Tutorials for a bunch of great tutorials!

I don't love it but I don't hate it either.
