I'm looking to add a slideshow to the top of my blog and have it include the blog title

You should be able to click ADD SECTION to add a new Page Section above the blog content. You can then choose the content you want in the new Page Section.

Sorry Paul, I probably should have been more clear... I mean to add the text over the slideshow images and the text would change with each image. So image A would include blog post A title and link, and image B would be blog post V title and link... and so on.

Do you want a slideshow above the blog that features some of the blog posts by showing the blog thumbnail image, the blog title and a link to the full post?

If so, there isn't a fully featured solution built in. A workaround is to add a full width Summary Block, set to Carousel mode, with Items per Row set to 1. So that one item (one post) is shown at one. This will create a manual carousel with the title below the image. You can add CSS to move the title over the image and you can use JavaScript to auto-advance the slides.

Let me know if this is helpful 🙂.
