Why is your header image so HUGE?!?!

Fold sitting

Huge header images are a small pet peeve of mine.

Or, rather, they are a huge pet peeve of mine.

From a reader point of view, I do not want to see a picture of your lovely kitty cat if it means that I have to scroll down below the fold to even begin to read your content.

But I especially cringe from a fellow bloggers point of view.

You are wasting such valuable real estate, especially if you plan to monetize your blog.

And no, I am not just picking on you.

I just took a look at my own blogs and made the header images even smaller.

(Which caused other header problems but that is a story for another day! Lol. )

If you are having trouble (or just plan ol’ don’t know how) shrinking your image, the handy dandy program that I used is picnik.com.

Simply upload an image. Click the resize tab. Adjust to your specific specifications.

Easy enough, right?

For those of you with the gigantic header image, may I ask why?
