New Tots100 Badges for Parent Bloggers

As you know,
the Tots100 index of Mummy and Daddy blogs has a new sponsor, FamilyHolidays.co.uk.

One of the benefits has been to have brand new badges that replace the original badges that I made. Yes, I made them, and no, I’m sure you won’t be surprised to know I scored a grade ‘F’ in GCSE Art. 

If you would like, you can use the form below to generate your very own, personalised Tots100 badge that will update each month to show your ranking – I’m modelling this badge in my own sidebar over there. Pretty, isn’t it?

These badges are available for everyone who has submitted their blog to the index, not just those ranked in this month’s top 100. However, if you’ve only just submitted your blog, your personalised badge won’t be available until next month.

To get your personalised badge, just use the drop down menu to select your blog from the list, copy the code generated, and paste it into your sidebar, as you would for a normal badge.

    Oh WOW it works – I am a serious techno-dyslexic but I did it right first time!!! Thank you!!!

    Great stuff. Just one thing, on my blog the image is split vertically between the red ‘ranked #’ band and the ‘family holidays’ logo. The gap is fairly large and there’s no red border, so it looks a little odd and disjointed. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Not so far, but I’ve passed your email on to the techies, who will drop you a line to see what’s gone awry.

    Hi Andy,
    Can you request the code again above, and try now please?

  5. 14th April 2010 / 2:45 pm

    It’s only the name in the database – your badge will still work fine, I promise. Think you should be right in the table?

    Hi,
    Ignore me – I had some CSS styles that were overriding the coding (they would’ve taken precedence over the local padding also). I’ve tweaked the stylesheet and all is now well.

    Cheers for this! Mine is up on my blog, proclaiming my distinctly Not Top 100 score for all to see. Lovely that everyone who has submitted can have one.

    No problem andy, I added in some inline styles to overwrite your styles as well. Hopefully it will help others with similar issues.

    Wow, what a good idea. Thanks for all of the time and work you put into all of this.

  10. 14th April 2010 / 5:24 pm

    “I WANT ONE” :0) I shall be a good girl and wait my turn, mind you don’t know if you shall be able to fit as many digits on it for what is my possible ranking, ha ha can’t wait to find out XX

    How cool is that!!

    Now Mary, you’ll just have to sit down nicely and wait, like the other girls. In a few weeks, when we’ve scored you, and IF you ask nicely, you may have a badge. Okay? 😉

  15. 14th April 2010 / 8:08 pm

    I’m going to take all the credit and hope the clever people who *actually* did the work don’t turn up to disagree with me.

    Hi there, liking the fancy new badges! Could you change Kitschy Koo to Kitschy Coo though? Thanks 🙂

  17. 14th April 2010 / 8:21 pm

    Alrighty, I shall wait…. ya don’t do em in pink do you ;0)

  18. 14th April 2010 / 10:11 pm

    Thank you so much for doing all this – it’s great for all of us non-top 100’s to see where we come in. I’m miles off but onwards and upwards!

  19. 14th April 2010 / 11:26 pm

    You can have any colour you like, so long as it’s the one we made.

  20. 14th April 2010 / 11:26 pm

    If it’s just wrong on the drop down menu, it’s only our internal name, you’re right on the table, I think?

  21. 14th April 2010 / 11:28 pm

    Oh goodness, that’s making my head spin.
    Your blog will be on next month. In the meantime, I suggest sorting your postrank feed out – you can contact Mel@postrank.com or Twitter is a great way to reach them – they’re @postrank. They have been really, really helpful with other people in the index who’ve had questions.
    With the URLs, we can run both and take the one with the best score.
    Hope that helps!

  22. 14th April 2010 / 11:28 pm

    Well, I hope you’ll be able to see your score get a little higher each month as your blog grows!

  23. 15th April 2010 / 12:31 pm

    This is very cool, not I just need to work out how to add it to my blog 🙂

  24. 15th April 2010 / 3:44 pm

    Thanks Sally, it’s a great idea – and something else to watch fanatically. Will it update each month like magic?

    Ooo- what a good idea. Thank you.

  26. 15th April 2010 / 10:54 pm

    No, not like magic. It will actually BE magic. Oh, yes.

  27. 16th April 2010 / 12:04 pm

    Yep, I put it in and it’s a-ok. Very clever stuff!

  28. 16th April 2010 / 6:40 pm

    ooooooo i love the new badge!!! thanks so much 😀

    thank you for adding me to the list. I have tried to use the code for All Baby Advice blog provided, but the badge does not appear correctly.
    Please, help. Thank you.
