  43. Here’s my post:

    I’ve tried everything to add the badge to my page but just can;t figrue out how to do it. I sent you an e-mail shouting for help but I know you’re probably very busy ;-)

    I’ve never added anything to my sidebar before so just can’t figure out how to do it – sorry ;-( Tried googling for an answer but it all got very technical with lots of HTML coding and everything I tried resulted in error messages. Still happy to add this if you can give me any clues!

  44. This is such a fantastic competition and I had so much fun putting my blog post together :)

    Might just be going to to buy some of these bits even if I don’t win! Next clothes are so lovely!
