Giveaway Winners and Numbering Comments Tutorial!

January 1, 2012
Happy New Year!!! Thank you so much to all those who entered the blog design giveaways! Here are the winning names…
Congratulations ladies! I will be in touch shortly to get those designs uploaded!

I also wanted to share a little tutorial from this past spring, since there are so many new bloggers out there: Numbering Comments Video Tutorial (it makes it much easier when announcing those winning entries!!). I hope this can help you in your next giveaway, if you don’t have numbered comments yet.

Happy New Year!!! 🙂

    Hey Kristen,
    Do you know of any blog templates out there that won't allow for you to make certain changes? I tried your numbering comments tutorial last night {and it's super easy to do} and it didn't work. I tried embedding the comments rather than have them pop up and it still didn't work. Any thoughts?

    Thanks bunches for being so thoughtful and helpful!

    Hey Holly, I should add this and I will to this post…I can't remember if I said it in the tutorial, but sometimes you have to move that html widget. So if you put the comment code widget in your sidebar, try sliding it into a new place (like under your posting box). I hope that makes sense!

    Hi Kristen! Happy New Year!!!
    I love your tutorials – you make them so easy. But I have a stupid question. How can I stop my comments from being in that box?? I've tried pasting that code into a couple of different spots but it doesn't appear to be working — I think it's the box. How do I get my comments to show up as a list right below the post (after you click on comments)?
    Thanks so much for your help!!!!

    Holly… help! I've tried the widget under the blog post on the side bar and nothing. I wonder if there is something else that I am doing wrong. If you want my email is and I would love help with this. Thanks! Karen

    I moved it to a different random spot on my sidebar and it didn't work. So then I tried embedding my comments again {Although one gal said when I embed my comments she's not able to comment on my blog?!?} and that didn't work either. Sometimes I think blog templates don't allow for this changes…is that possible? Mine was a cheapy joe one and I keep meaning to take the leap and spend some dough on a nicer one {Like one of your cute ones, Kristen…}. I'll keep messing around and see what I come up with.

    Congrats to all of them! You are very talented! I hope you had a great New Years Kristin! Oh and thanks for sharing about the numbers! I usually just count each one until I get to the right one. 🙂 I think your method is much better!

    How funny, Sandra won my blog design giveaway too!! She's gonna have to make more blogs! LOL! And I had to go back and use your numbering tutorial today! We are on the same wave length!

    Hi Kristen:
    It's so funny because I don't understand most of the comments on this post, but it is still fun to read them! I think I am missing a gene or a chromosome that allows me to be tech-do-able. But that's okay, I just click on things 37 times and eventually something works!

    I am so happy you are in my little BloggyUniverse, and I am wishing you a joyful 2012…
