Lol I'm 5 years late but if you're still wondering - this might help you.

1. Put the code below under body{

cursor: url(http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m990fdufIi1qid2nw.gif), auto;

2. Put the code below under a:hover{

cursor: url(http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m990fdufIi1qid2nw.gif), auto;

You can change the cursor by removing: http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m990fdufIi1qid2nw.gif

And instead of that URL use one sourced from this website.

Well yaaa sometimes it’s pretty funny to have a different cursor on your blog. So that’s how you make it (works with animated cursors, too!):

1. Make a cursor (and upload it) or go look for one in the Internet. It shouldn’t be bigger that 50x50px

2. Edit the HTML of your template:

a) Scroll down until it says <style type=‘text/css’>

b) After <style type='text/css’>, copy and paste the following code:

body, a, a:hover {

           cursor: url(Graphicadressofyourcursorshouldbehere), auto;
       }

c) Copy and paste the graphic adress of your cursor between the () in url()

d) That’s it!

3) Understand what the code does:

When you paste the code after <style type='text/css’>, it edits the CSS, which means it is part of the style sheet, not exactly part of the HTML.

body, a, a:hover { } means: On the whole body of your blog, also on hovering. This means not that the cursor that appears while hovering over different objects (like links, images, headers, etc.) on your blog must be replaced by your own cursor!

cursor: this “announces” what should happen to the cursor.

url(Graphicadressofyourcursorshouldbehere), says where to find the picture data for the cursor.

auto says that for the cursor it should use your settings.

; is end of the command.
