Fun Friday..New Blogger Helpful Hint..and a Question

New Blogger Helpful Hint....
If your a new blogger, like me, have you ever wondered how to make a link back to your blog when you leave a comment on someone else's blog?  I finally figured it out after checking with my bff....Google!!  Simply use this code after your comment.
<a href="insert url of your blog here">insert name of your blog here</a>

Now for a question for experienced bloggers :)
Can someone tell me how to insert a reply button after someone leaves a comment on a post?  I would like to be able to respond to comments but have no clue how to?  Right now I just leave a comment myself.

Fun Friday....
Today was an early dismissal Friday, so of course I worked in some crafting time.  We read stories about chickens and baby chicks earlier in the week.  Students created a Circle Map and a Flow Map  (luv, luv, luv, Thinking Maps) to organize their thoughts, then wrote an expository paragraph on chickens.
The Beginnings of a Circle Map
And our craft
"Just Hatched" Facts

I had an example of the chick hanging on the board all week and my little ones could not wait to make it!  You can get your very own right here in my TpT store or now here in my TN store!

Check out Ladybug's Teacher Files! She has amazing easy blogging tutorials. They reply buttons are called threaded comments. If you search for that, you should be able to find an easy tutorial!

Thanks for the tips! I'm fairly new myself and often feel like I'm doing things the hard way in the blogger world. I will definitely check out Ladybug's Teacher Files, Jenny! Thanks!

Your chicks are adorable! If you figure out an easy way to get threaded comments, please share! Everything I have found has to do with altering html code and I am too nervous about messing up my blog to try it! I have noticed when I am on the mobile version of my blog it has the reply button.
