I have a space above "Social Media Woes" that I can't remove.

I am attaching the file so that you can see.  It's in a div with a class off "hometext" here is the css.
.hometext  {
	margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    width: 80%;
    }

Open in new window

Not sure why it won't line up to the top of the div.

It does line up with the top of the DIV already. The DIV above it (the one with the banner image) will expand to fit the entire image, which includes the 'star' on the right.

You do have a top margin on your H2 which pushes it down slightly. Remove that and it'll move the text up slightly:

h2 { margin-top: 0px; }

Negative margins, as Nathan suggested can work, but are often a sign of a 'hack' and can have some odd side-effects - you're basically moving your text DIV up so that it overlaps the image DIV. That may work on this page, but as soon as you don't have header text (or it fills the full width of the line), the text will sit on top of your image, and probably look wrong.

I would always recommend that if you find yourself needing to set negative margins - re-think your design!! There's often a better way to acheive what you want.
