Step 2: Embed your badge code on your blog

Please note that every blogging platform is different. We've included instructions for the five 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 - they're sure to know more than us!

Good luck — and happy blogging!
