    1. Oh shoot! Sorry we missed it Helen! I’ll tweet it and such anyway, but I feel bad about that. I get pingbacks if when posting you use an actually post or the blog battle page: http://www.rachaelritchey.com/blogbattle/
      If you just use the main website w/o adding on an extension then pingbacks don’t work. Otherwise just posting the link to the comments definitely works, too! Some people do both just to make sure. 🙂

    2. I looked and you have the correct link, or at least I think it is, but I didn’t get the pingback. :/ Sorry, Helen. I feel really bad about that. Feel free to always shoot me a comment if it’s missing, even after the initial day. I can always go back and add it later. Thanks for not just giving up when I missed it the first time! Come back for more and more!
