A Little Help, Please?

I know that a few of my readers are members of the Beauty News Feed. I was recently invited to join and I tried, today. I think I followed the directions properly, I snagged the badge, then linked it with the link to the site in a Picture gadget for my sidebar. Is this how you did it, if you have a Blogger blog? I ask because I then did a blog post and it hasn't shown up on the site. So, I think I messed up, somehow?

I feel like a real idiot having to ask this, but I am super-duper tech challenged and well... I am pathetic. lol So please, take pity on me? Tell me how you got hooked up?

Thank you! A thousand times! With bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolates I think you.
