Thanks to my middle daughter who is gaining in HTML knowledge every day!
You can place this banner on your blog template but it is best to first save your original blog template (copy and paste your template onto a word processing program and save on your computer)
Then right click over the above html code and "Select All". When the code is highlighted, copy, then go to your template and paste it into your blog html. Place it under the Powered by Blogger button under the----powered by---> code.
Preview this to see if it is where you want it to be. If it is not, then clear edits and start over again. If you like it, then "Save Template Changes" and republish your blog.
It is easier than it sounds but make sure to save your original html code.
