So here is the cliff note version of how to change your background
First go to the above site and pick out the blog background you like. Then click on the background and a page with an html code will pop up. Copy that HTML code and now go back to your blog. Make sure you are logged on then click on Customize, then click on layout then click on add a gadget.
