    Love the tutorials. I watch them even though I know how to do what you are saying. πŸ™‚ I love Hey Pate it. I've been using it ever since you posted about it. LOVE IT!

    Just in case you were wondering… I would love a tutorial on how to paste an automatic signature on your blog. I have read tutorials but not figured out WHERE in my blog HTML code to post the signature code yet.

    Like my direct links below. :p

    Love your direct links!! I know a lot of you about this, but I've had some other people ask more about it so I thought I'd put it out there. πŸ™‚

    I started my blog as a project for one of my master's classes. I already had a website, but a blog seems so much more easier to maintain. I found your blog, then found a TON of other wonderful teacher's blogs! I can't wait to learn from everyone. Thank you for all you do!
    My blog is in the beginning stages, but hopefully the more I learn, the better and more detailed it will get. πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much for your tutorial. I have tried doing it, but for some CRAZY reason when I paste my blog it shoes up with some saying about treasures??? I have no idea what I am doing wrong! I did learn a lot though!

    It's not working for me I wonder if it's because I'm on homeschoolblogger.com

  37. Mrs. Ward says:

    WOnderful tutorials! Your blog is teaching me a lot about blogging AND teaching. Thank you. I also tried to the Hey Paste It and when I click on post online it comes back with Clip 0000 and when you click the direct url it is text about a pair of treasure craft ashtrays that will apparently look great in my mid-century modern living room! I even tried a Mozilla to see if it was Internet Explorer causing trouble. Do you have any other thoughts about this?

  38. Sally Olson says:

    Hi Kristen, I have just gotten started setting up a blog and your tutorials have been so helpful. I am trying to use the HeyPasteIt to be able to leave a direct link in my comments. I have followed the tutorial but when I click to paste it online I don't get my code. The clip number is 0000 and in the code box is a sample message. Help please? Thanks

  39. Hey Sally, same thing has happened to me……I have tried and tried! I have watched the video so many times…..poor Kristen she is wonderful. I honestly thought I knew some about technology, but this has just got me! I decided to save mine on my desktop…..

  40. Kristen says:

    Hi Sally and Kelly–it's something with Hey Paste It, I don't know what's wrong with it! I hope it gets back to normal soon!

  41. Hi Kristen,
    Yeah, it's happening to me, too….the 0000 Clip. I'll try again tomorrow. Thanks VERY much for doing this though, Kristen. You're very generous with your time.

  44. Ann Marie says:

    I have tried and tried to get the heypasteit.com site to work for me. It continues to give me a code of 0000. Maybe it is the name of my new blog, who knows….but I can manually type it in and it works. Thanks for all you do!

    I was so excited to find this tutorial…. but after doing exactly what you said 15 times, the Hey Paste it is not working for me. It does not give me my code, it gives me an error message. Any idea why? I checked and triple checked the code and it is exactly what you said…

    Hi Kristin,
    It's me again! I just tried to leave a link in a comment on another blog and I'm not sure what I did wrong. Yikes! The code came up in the comment rather than the name of my blog as a link. (Just like it did in Jennifer's comment above.)I cut and pasted the code directly into the comment box.
    Thanks so much for your help!

  67. Thank you so much! I have been trying to figure out how to do this!
