Off-topic: help me add this widget?

If anyone reading is more schooled than I in making Blogger templates and rogue HTML play well together, can you help me add the widget below (from to my blog template? I can't figure out a way to add it as an official widget, and I'm a little too green on HTML to try dropping the code into the template itself. Help!

ok, this is hard to explain, but you can probably drop the widget right before the < /header > close tag and it would appear right under the "in which I ..." portion of the blog. Since it's kind of wide I was thinking it might look better there than in either side column. Otherwise, you could put it in the footer, but your visitors would have to scroll wayyyy down to see it. I would do a ctrl-F for that header icon (minus the spaces of course), drop the HTML for the widget right above it, and see what happens. I think it'll work, but again, HTML is hard by proxy (and hard generally).

Okay, so I tried that and it worked perfectly (hooray!), but it doesn't look so hot so I'm not going to keep it. Thanks for pointing me to the header tag, though--I had no idea where to start looking for the right place to put it!
