My new year's resolution is to take my blog to a new level and try to get more traffic to the site for extra motivation. I've signed up with a couple of blogging websites that have approved my blog, but they want me to insert verification code into my home page, preferably on the side bar. I've cut and pasted the code and I presume it's supposed to show like a button or icon, but all I have is the code for everyone to see and the blogging sites are saying that the verification has failed.
I'm sure this is really easy but I can't find any instructions within the dashboard or through support. The website is http://www.aslowjourney.wordpress.com and you can see the code at the bottom of the home page.
Thanks in advance.
The blog I need help with is eleanormarriott.wordpress.com.
