    Never mind I found them. I think I should really read your whole post before I jump the gun and sart asking questions. If my students did it to me I would not be happy.

  7. Is there any place to get colored pictures…and will these small pictures work on facebook? I can make the heart, but macs don't have as many choices for adding small pictures to fb.
    Big Thanks

    (I tried the font tag, to make the font red… and it wasn't accepted)

    Hey Pat, not sure if they'll work on facebook or not. I don't think you can put colored pictures and I've tried a zillion ways to make the fonts colored, but it won't work, like you said. I think this is as much as can be done, but I'll let you know if I find more!

  9. I guess I'm wondering what tags work on comments and which don't…Thanks

    These are the only tags I could find that work…I've tried others that didn't work (underline, font color, etc.) 🙂

    I've realized that I talk to you during your tutorials! lol! Is there a way I can use symbols from specific fonts on my computer? When I copy and paste it from word it doesn't stay the same.

    Thank you all for watching and trying it out!! You are all so sweet!

    Hadar, I had to laugh when you said you talk to me!! I don't know about the symbols…I think there are some of the more universal ones that work and others just don't. I'll be sure to let you know if I find out anything. 🙂

    Thanks for the great ideas. I am new to professional blogging and I am completely addicted because of blogs like yours:)

  30. Kristen says:

    Thanks so much Randi!! I am off to check out your blog!

  31. I love your blog and have read for months…I have just started a blog of my own, hoping to use it next year with my 1st graders, but have lots of questions.. I would love if you could do a tutorial on how to make a "grab my button" with a cute picture, and also how to get your page tabs to show up at the top. Thanks so much! Jennifer at

  32. Jennifer says:

    Ok… so I have a question. It has been mentioned that it can be annoying when people put there websites in every comment. I sort of feel as if it's ok. It's not that I am trying to detract people from your site to mine… but making yet another link for collaborating. Thoughts?

  33. So helpful! I have been using your tutorials all night, and my blog is so much cuter! THANK YOU!


  34. Kristin says:

    Just playing around! Thanks for sharing – I truly appreciate it!
    Kristin Ü (Does that look like a happy face to you? I always write a happy face AFTER my name when I am printing so that's why I reversed it but I can't tell if it really looks like a happy face. AND am I ALLOWED to put the pic after my name or is that bad blogging form and etiquette?)
    I'm also trying the bold and italicized code – I didn't have that before. You are the best! From one Kristin to another Kristen, maybe you'll click on my link!
