  2. You need to put one of those buttons somewhere on your blog. I am listed on blogcatalog. To do that, I simply put a button on my about page. You can see it here: Simply copy the code they provide and paste it into the HTML editor on

  3. Put the recent reader widget in the sidebar using the text widget
    & re submit your blog and it should go through because it will
    have your blog id in the code the buttons just link up to the
    main category your blog is listed in through blog catalog.


  4. You can see what the recent reader widget looks like
    by scrolling half way down my side bar.

    To see the recent reader widget follow link.
