How to split your blogs header into two widgets

This post shows how you can split your blogs header into two widgets like the following screenshot

so i recommend you backup your template or use a test blog for this example I'm going to use the Minima Template so if you are using a different template the code would be different. The default width of the template header-wrapper code is 660px
(if you don't know what I'm talking about see screenshot below)

So I'm going to set the width of the main header section to 350px and float it to the left see screenshot

now that's done we can create the second section for the right widget so copy the following code

#header2 {

and paste it some where in between the opening and closing skin tags like Ive done below

next copy the following code for the new section

<b:section class='header' id='header2' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='yes'/>

and paste it like so

now save it and go to the page element tab you should have a new section on the right side of the header here's a screenshot of my result
