I was nominated for Versatile Blogger by Linnet Moss. http://linnetmoss.com/2014/03/24/linnets-nominees-for-the-versatile-blogger-award/
If I had really been more aware, I would have beat her to the punch and nominated her first. I will need to fix that. Her’s is an amazing blog about the pleasures of food, wine, vegetarian eating – especially comfort foods – film, theater, good reading, good company and beautiful men. 🙂 In all honesty, her blog is much more deserving than mine. But I accept her kind nomination all the same. A huge thank you to Linnet Moss!

See sub-page: Adding Blog Button for help… Carley
#39 by lambskinny on March 13, 2013 - 10:44
It’s not an HTML code that I know of – it’s an image file that you use in that manner…
#40 by A.K.Andrew @artyyah on June 19, 2012 - 15:16
To be honest I don’t know – it was a google search. But if you send me an email to email@example.com then I’ll send it through that . Beyond that I don’t know. Sorry .
#41 by Kaite O'Reilly on June 19, 2012 - 15:49
You’re so kind – thank you – but Carley has fixed it for me (and some others, too…). By the way, I took a side trip and really liked your blog.
#42 by A.K.Andrew @artyyah on June 20, 2012 - 07:12
Fantastic – glad you found the html & also that you took the time to go to my blog & liked it. Thank you.
Are you on twitter – I couldn’t find you?
#43 by A.K.Andrew @artyyah on June 19, 2012 - 13:13
I finally worked out the HTML code is
Paste this into a text widget in the side bar.
If you do not have a self hosted site then I believe you will need to drag & drop the image onto your desktop & insert like any other media image.
#44 by A.K.Andrew @artyyah on June 19, 2012 - 13:17
This is the code above for Versatile B Badge – but delete the ….. At the beginning and end of the code. It wouldn’t let me post just the code itself.
#45 by A.K.Andrew @artyyah on June 19, 2012 - 13:20
Sorry it won’t publish the code in these comments . I eventually found it by searching for it online. Sorry for the confusing posts above 🙂
#46 by Kaite O'Reilly on June 19, 2012 - 13:39
I think this is where the confusion comes from – the apparent inability to reproduce the HTML code here…. Can you tell me where you found this code on-line? Looking at other people’s comments, and their difficulty, also, in obtaining the code, I think it’s becoming a bit of a holy grail! Thank you so much for your kindness in trying to assist me…. And how lovely to connect with others on this lovely site!
#47 by tangerinekey on June 19, 2012 - 03:56
I have tried for over an hour to put the button in my list of badges on the side bar. I can easily insert it as an image in the blog post, but I can not make it show up at all in the side bar. I guess I need the exact code to be able to do it. Suggestions please.
#48 by tangerinekey on June 19, 2012 - 05:53
Nevermind. I finally figured it out!
#49 by Kaite O'Reilly on June 19, 2012 - 11:14
I’m afraid I am also having difficulty getting the button on my side bar. I’ve been trying what others say, below, but haven’t the correct code. I can paste the button into a blog as an image – great – but not get it to appear as an image in the sidebar of the blog. Any advice to the technically-challenged (and visually impaired) gratefully received!
#50 by lambskinny on June 19, 2012 - 11:24
I could look, but… are you using WordPress or some other service for your blog?
#51 by Kaite O'Reilly on June 19, 2012 - 11:31
I am using WordPress. Thank you so much for your help – and thanks and congratulations on creating such a creative and supportive initiative as the awards! x
#52 by Mike on June 12, 2012 - 18:54
Thanks to Vladimir and Johna for this award, I appreciate it greatly, it is nice when people enjoy what you do. find them and their interesting blog at
#53 by teepee12 on June 9, 2012 - 07:08
I copied and pasted it on my desktop, then inserted it like any other image. I also turned it into a clickable link to this blog …. It is pretty simple and don’t be put off that the image is a png not a jpg. Your blog won’t care.
#54 by Curls & Q on June 3, 2012 - 03:55
Visit my website for the button code link to add it to your sidebar. http://www.curlsandq.com

A Versatile Thank-you! for the award . . . vernabowman.com
#56 by lambskinny on June 19, 2012 - 11:25
Welcome, Verna! Carley
#57 by lambskinny on May 5, 2012 - 21:28
I think you can just save the image to your computer, then use the IMAGE widget provided by WP and paste it into the widget. Don’t label the image or that shows up oddly. I don’t know if that helps…
#58 by anelemc on May 1, 2012 - 17:56
Received award but cannot post button to my blog-please help-how is this done? thank you
#59 by lambskinny on May 4, 2012 - 09:57
A video is on site, probably in the comments of the very first post. Check it out. Carley
#60 by anelemc on May 4, 2012 - 10:13
#61 by mliddle on May 1, 2012 - 07:07
Please can you help with the text that was omitted from the instructions (#2) for placing the button on the sidebar of our blogs? I also was recently awarded Versatile Blogger and I would like to let my nominees know how to place the badge. Nothing else worked that is in the comments above.
thanks – Monique
#62 by whateverisinthekitchen on April 20, 2012 - 04:28
Three steps (wish me luck!):
1.Place a text box in your side bar. Title it “Awards”.
2. Copy and paste the following into the text box:
3. remove the spaces between “”.
Not fancy, but it will work!
You can also upload it to your own library, in which case, WP gives you the source code and you can just replace it in the example above.
#63 by whateverisinthekitchen on April 20, 2012 - 04:30
Yep…mine should have worked as well. Really hoped I had helped as well, megalgom!
#64 by urbannight on May 9, 2012 - 15:11
That assumes I know how to add a text box to my side bar. I don’t.
#65 by whateverisinthekitchen on May 20, 2012 - 16:42
Oh, gosh!! Sorry! In the dashboard, go to Appearance and click on Widgets. It should take you to a page that will let you set up exactly how your page will look.
You have to use a little imagination–it’s not WYSIWIG (what you see is what you get). But it will have a list of widgets you can use, such as text boxes, on the left and whatever side bars, headers and footers you can change on the right. You just drag a widget (text box) into the side bar, then you can start adding info. If you have full HTML for a picture, then you don’t have to have that picture in your library. You can copy and paste the info directly into the text box (which I think is what we were talking about before). Let me know if you need more help.
#66 by lambskinny on May 21, 2012 - 10:05
Thanks for helping our fellow VBA bloggers! Carley
#67 by urbannight on May 9, 2012 - 15:34
Well, I figured out how to add the text box but trying to copy the link results in just the link showing up. And it isn’t even a hot link. No image. The info to copy and paste is missing from this post. So I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be using. I could just save the image but that won’t let it act as a button.
#68 by Karen Berthine on June 2, 2012 - 22:20
2. Copy and paste WHAT into the text box? Unclear – I have tried different versions of the code below but nothing worked. Help?
#69 by whateverisinthekitchen on June 4, 2012 - 03:16
The code below is correct, but replace the first * with a . Now I’ll post this and that will all disappear and this will make no sense!
#70 by whateverisinthekitchen on June 4, 2012 - 03:17
Yep…as I thought. OK. Replace the first asterisk with a “less than” sign and replace the second asterisk with a “more than” sign. That opens and closes each set of “carat marks”. Unfortunately, when I try to type them in as text, even this forum reads them as HTML.
#71 by megalagom on April 17, 2012 - 16:44
Try this (Remove the *)
#72 by megalagom on April 17, 2012 - 16:45
Hmmm, *a href=”https://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/”></a*
#73 by megalagom on April 17, 2012 - 16:46
Okay, Nevermind, I don’t know how to post it without it dissapearing If you have any buttons on your widget page, look at the html and replace the link with the homepage here and the IMG with the html of when you click on one of the above images. Goodluck!
#74 by Paws To Talk on April 3, 2012 - 21:46
I was recently awarded the VBA and I can’t figure out how to add the button to my site. Help please! Thanks!
#75 by Jenn (@ciaofraz) on March 22, 2012 - 14:41
Hi, I was nominated for the versatile blogger award, very happy : ) I second the above question from Suzy, Is there a HTML code for the button? Do I just copy/save the image?
#76 by Suzy on February 27, 2012 - 17:41
How long does it take after nomination to be listed? And another question, sorry, what is the html to put the button on a blog? I may be daft!
