  4. miss w. if my teacher upgrades 50 student blogs do we still have to pay for the themes and everything??????????? 🙁

    • AmeliaW,
      If your teacher has purchased a PRO blog about $40 per year, then she can upgrade 50 other blogs for free. That means students can embed things on their blogs and change themes etc.

    • Ana,
      What is the most cool place you have been to? I went to Point Barrow in Alaska when there were still some icebergs close to shore, but it was still warm enough to wear a T-shirt.

    • Richard,
      You might need to check if someone else at your school has downloaded the badge and ask them for help. Remember you only copy the piece of text for the blogger or commenter or helper badge then paste it into a text box on your sidebar.

      • Sorry Mickey,
        We have one badge for the March Challenge and one badge for the September challenge. It just means it starts in that month even though it runs for 10 weeks through October and November.
