How to add your badge


If you’re joining us on November 21, why not add a shiny badge to your blog and shout it to the world? It’s a great way of seeing who’s coming and connecting before the big day.

We know that your blogs come in all shapes and sizes, so we've made sure there's a couple of options to choose from, and we've included instructions on how to get the badges up, too.  

Step 1: Choose your badge size

Step 2: Copy and paste the badge's code

Large badge code:

Small badge code:    

<a href="http://www.mumsnet.com/events/blogfest/2015"><img src="http://www.mumsnet.com/cms/uploads/bloggers/blogfest/Blogfest-15S.png" width="145" height="145" alt="mumsnet" /></a>

Step 3: Embed your badge code on your blog

Please note that every blogging platform is different. We've included instructions for the two most popular platforms in our network. If you use another blogging site, it's best that you follow the instructions on embedding there.  If you're not sure where to look or run into problems when trying to follow them, please contact your blogging site's help team for more info.
