To add a picture, go to your Sparkpage and click "edit my sparkpage." Once you're there, there will be a button for "edit my photo gallery" or something like that. From there, you can add pictures. Then return to the main edit page, and you can add pictures to the front of your page from your gallery.
To add a blog, on your home page (not your actual spark page, but the home page when you log in), there's an option in the right sidebar for "add a blog." If you want to add a picture in there, there's a link in the top bar when you're composing.
If you haven't seen it already, there's a really good guide to all the features around Spark under the tab at the top of your home page called How to Use the Site. If you click on that and scroll down, there's a getting started guide, and an FAQ, and some videos. Those should help too! :)
