    I have a menu, My Mama’s Blogs, on… http://teddyhere.wordpress.com that I want to add links to my 2 other blogs. The other blogs are in another account. Does this make a difference?

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

    No. You can create a custom menu and include a custom link to the other blogs in it.

    Thanks, Time Thief–I have gone over all the links you gave me but I still can’t figure out how to put 2 links under the Navigation title My Mama’s Blogs. I get one there but can’t figure out how to put # 2 there so when you hover over MMB both links show. I seem to be having a senior brain freeze or sumpthin…

    Ok maybe I am just dumb. When I try to drop and drag the links I want under “My Mama’s Blog” they won’t stay put–to the left– and then what is on the menu under the header is Home Meow Day of Grace Today, I think… What I want is Home Meow and then My Mama’s Blogs that when you hover over it the 2 links are there to click on. Not happening no matter what I do.

    Hi there – I’d love to help with your custom menu but I’m not totally sure what you’re trying to do.

    Right now you have two items in your menu: Home (a link to http://teddyhere.wordpress.com/) and Meow, which is a link to your About page, here: http://teddyhere.wordpress.com/about/

    If you want to add drop-down links to two other blogs, you’ll need something to be the “parent” menu item for those two links. That “parent” item will be clickable. What you might want to do is to create a page called “Mama’s Blogs” – and add the links to your two other sites on that page. You could then use that page as the “parent” menu item, and add two custom menu links to your other blogs as “children” of that “parent.”

    Let me know if this would work for you.

    Thanks for the offer of help. But I gave up…too frustrating and it is a blog “written” by a cat! Put the links in a widget on the sidebar. Works fine.
