Bits and bobs and blog buttons

You may have noticed over the past week or so I have made some minor changes to my blog, just because I am finally starting to get the hang of how things in the blog world work. My first post was on the 12th of March so I haven't been on here long, but I think I'm doing okay...I hope :)
Okay so just to list the changes:

Comment box- It now opens up in on a separate window in a smaller view.

Reactions- I finally worked out how to put those lovely little reaction boxes at the end of the post. I think that I have titled them "your thoughts". I particularly wanted these because its a great anonymous way to give feedback. Also because things get so busy, sometimes you may read a post but not have enough time to comment so these allow you to leave feedback with one click :)

Pages- I have also added a new page (pages are the tabs under the banner) for the "to be a heroine" series. Considering that I plan to have many lessons in this series I thought that it might proved easier if the links could all be found on the one page :)

Blog Buttons - I finally have a blog button! YAY. It took me the better part of today to set it up and get it working. As you can probably tell I am not that much of a computer person :)
For those of you who would like to link to my blog I have created 3 versions below. I know that sometimes particular buttons may not go with the theme/colour scheme or your own blog so by creating some different ones I hope that you will find one that you like :)
Also I have started adding blog buttons from some of my favourite blogs on the column to the right, If you have one but I haven't added it let me know, I would love to add it :)

Blog Button #1- Northanger Abbey; Catherine & Henry

Blog Button #2- Robin Hood BBC; Lady Marian

Blog Button # 3- Lorna Doone; Lorna & John

Yay! Blog buttons! These are so lovely! I'm adding the Catherine Morland button to my blog sidebar! Thanks for making the "Your Thoughts" boxes available. Sometimes when I read your blog posts I don't have enough time to comment until later so this is a great way to leave feedback quickly. Thanks!

P.S. Thanks for adding my blog button!
P.S.2 Having a pop-up comment box is also more convenient thanks! :)
