        transform: translateX(30px) scale(1.3) translateY(10px)
    }
}
@keyframes spin {
    0% {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(-10px) scale(.9);
        transform: translateX(-10px) scale(.9)
    }
    to {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(30px) scale(1.3) translateY(10px);
        transform: translateX(30px) scale(1.3) translateY(10px)
    }
}
@-webkit-keyframes spin1 {
    0% {
        -webkit-transform: scale(.9);
        transform: scale(.9)
    }
    to {
        -webkit-transform: scale(1.5);
        transform: scale(1.5)
    }
}
@keyframes spin1 {
    0% {
        -webkit-transform: scale(.9);
        transform: scale(.9)
    }
    to {
        -webkit-transform: scale(1.5);
        transform: scale(1.5)
    }
}
@-webkit-keyframes spin2 {
    0% {
        -webkit-transform: translateY(0);
        transform: translateY(0)
    }
    to {
        -webkit-transform: translateY(40px);
        transform: translateY(40px)
    }
}
@keyframes spin2 {
    0% {
        -webkit-transform: translateY(0);
        transform: translateY(0)

        -webkit-transform: translateY(10px);
        transform: translateY(10px)
    }
    50% {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(30px);
        transform: translateX(30px)
    }
    to {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(50px);
        transform: translateX(50px)
    }
}
@keyframes spin3 {
    0% {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(0);
        transform: translateX(0)
    }
    25% {
        -webkit-transform: translateY(10px);
        transform: translateY(10px)
    }
    50% {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(30px);
        transform: translateX(30px)
    }
    to {
        -webkit-transform: translateX(50px);
        transform: translateX(50px)
    }
}

Add the animation JavaScript code.

After adding the CSS codes above, you will need to add the JavaScript code responsible for creating the animation effect. To do this, search for the closing body tag </body> and paste the code below just above it.

<script type ='text/javascript'> 
 //<![CDATA[
var TxtRotate = function (t, e, i) {
    this.toRotate = e, this.el = t, this.loopNum = 0, this.period = parseInt(i, 10) || 2e3, this.txt = "", this.tick(), this.isDeleting = !1
};
TxtRotate.prototype.tick = function () {
    var t = this.loopNum % this.toRotate.length,
        e = this.toRotate[t];
    this.isDeleting ? this.txt = e.substring(0, this.txt.length - 1) : this.txt = e.substring(0, this.txt.length + 1), this.el.innerHTML = '<span class="wrap">' + this.txt + "</span>";
    var i = this,
        s = 300 - 100 * Math.random();
    this.isDeleting && (s /= 2), this.isDeleting || this.txt !== e ? this.isDeleting && "" === this.txt && (this.isDeleting = !1, this.loopNum++, s = 500) : (s = this.period, this.isDeleting = !0), setTimeout(function () {
        i.tick()
    }, s)
}, window.onload = function () {
    for (var t = document.getElementsByClassName("txt-rotate"), e = 0; e < t.length; e++) {
        var i = t[e].getAttribute("data-rotate"),
            s = t[e].getAttribute("data-period");
        i && new TxtRotate(t[e], JSON.parse(i), s)
    }
    var o = document.createElement("style");
    o.type = "text/css", o.innerHTML = ".txt-rotate > .wrap { border-right: 0.08em solid #666 }", document.body.appendChild(o) 
};
//]]>
</script>

Adding the HTML code

The last thing you will need to do now is to add the HTML code where you will like the hero head to display. In our case, we have it added just after the header of our blog.

In case you want this show only on the homepage, you will need to wrap the HTM code below inside a conditional tag.

Meaning you will have to add this code if you want to show hero header only on homepage.

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'> 
<section class='top-banner-section'>
    <ul class='bubble'>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
    </ul>
    <div class='outer-circle'>
        <div class='inner-circle'></div>
    </div>
    <div class='banner_text'>
        <h5>Catalogue of <span class='txt-rotate' data-period='2000' data-rotate='["Plugins.", "Themes.", "SEO Hacks.", "Premium Blogging Guides.", "Tips and Tricks!"]'></span></h5> 
        <p>- Blogger Customiz -</p>
    </div>
</section>
</b:if>

And if you'll like to make your hero header show on every single page, then use the following code instead.

<section class='top-banner-section'>
    <ul class='bubble'>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
    </ul>
    <div class='outer-circle'>
        <div class='inner-circle'></div>
    </div>
    <div class='banner_text'>
        <h5>Catalogue of <span class='txt-rotate' data-period='2000' data-rotate='["Plugins.", "Themes.", "SEO Hacks.", "Premium Blogging Guides.", "Tips and Tricks!"]'></span></h5> 
        <p>- Blogger Customiz -</p>
    </div>
</section>
