  1. Place the Bloggers Do It Better badge on your blog or site, somewhere (preferably in the sidebar).
  2. Check PSS often for the Assignment Phrase–you never know where you’ll find it! It may have its own dedicated post announcing the next assignment, or it may sneak its way into a regular post, you never know!
  3. Take photos of your look interpreting the Assignment, and post it on your blog whenever you want (preferably the day of or day before).
  4. When the Bloggers Do It Better Assignment post comes up on PSS, Link to your blog post using the link widget in that post, and have a fabulous time clicking through the rest of the amazing submissions! The link title should be only your blog name–nothing else.
  5. …And then keep an eye out for the next Assignment, when the fun starts all over again!

    The new button is amazing! I'll be sure to participate on the next call!

    Hi Kristina,

    I've been trying to place the button on the sidebar of Style Stitch but the image doesn't show up. I've tried uploading it myself and it still doesn't work. Just wondering if you know of any other bloggers are having similar issues or how to fix it?

    Thanks!

    Tatiana

      Hey girlie! Which button are you having trouble with?

      I've tried the codes and all are working for me. If you want to try hosting the image on another server such as imageshack.us that might work better for you. I'm sorry I'm not sure why it's not working for you — it's been working for nearly everyone else!

      One thing you can try is copying the code, opening Textedit (mac) or a text program like wordpad in windows, and pasting it in there first. make sure there are no curly quotes, etc. Then, place it directly in your html code for your sidebar (like a widget etc). Once you've done that, if it still doesn't work, leave it upthere so I can see what is going on, and write me back. Sorry for the problems, we'll get it sorted out!

    • http://prettyshinysparkly.com Kristina

      Ah, I realized that you were commenting on an old temporary page which had the different code format. The code is updated now and should work for you. In the future, refer to the original Bloggers Do It Better post http://prettyshinysparkly.com/bloggers-do-it-bett… and that should work just fine for ya. :) Let me know how it goes!

    Does anyone know how to put the button on a blog on WordPress? I have moved mine from blogspot to wordpress and am still getting used to how everything works. I'd really like to participate but don't know where to post the code for the button to get in the sidebar!

  • http://sloansymington.tumblr.com Sloan Symington

    Hi,

    I would love to participate but I do not know know how to add widgets to tumblr. Is that possible, if so how do I do it!?

    Best,

    Sloan Symington

    sloansymington.tumblr.com :)

    • http://prettyshinysparkly.com Kristina

      I'm not sure as I don't know if tumblr uses widgets. You will have to check with the theme creator or get someone who knows Tumblr themes to insert the code directly into your theme. Sorry!

      • http://bangbylo.tumblr.com Lauren

        For my tumblr it usually works best if I just place the code for the button in the "About" section! :) It works on most themes. Hope that helps!
