    I need to add a blog badge to my blog, but my side bar is not wide enough. How do i make it wider to fit in this blog badge. Please help :)

    The blog I need help with is blogginmummy.wordpress.com.

  2. You have 4 choices, three of which are free and one is a paid choice.
    Note: Fresh and Clean is a responsive width theme. Responsive width means the layout adapts depending on the size of the device being used to view your site. When responsive width themes are viewed on mobiles sidebars appear below the posts in order to provide as much space as possible for reading.

    1. Reduce the size of the badge so it fits into the sidebar width of the Fresh and Clean theme you are using now.

    If you provide the code we can help with that. Will you please provide the code betweent backticks so we can examine it? The backtick ` not to be confused with the single quote mark ' is located to the left of the number 1 key in lower case under the tilde ~.

    2. Switch themes and choose one that has a wider sidebar

    3. Move all of your badges onto a static page to reduce reader distraction and increase focus on your content and to remove the amateurish appearance. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    4. Purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade and do the required CSS editing to change the width.
