    Kelly,

    There is an error in the link to my Cognitive Elements of Teaching blog on the blog roll. It should be http://mrscherr.blogspot.com/ you have an extra / and a * and another /.

    Just an FYI!
    SIGH!

    Fixed! You should all make sure your links work - I made a copy/paste glitch on that one, which cause the dead link.

    It looks like I'm going on a bike trip this weekend (yeah!), so I'll add links up until tomorrow afternoon, then catch up on Sunday night with any I get over the weekend.

    Hi Kelly - I have it on mine now too, thanks. How come I'm not on the Wordless Wednesday blogroll though? :-(

    Hello Simi - you have to sign up to get on the Wordless Wednesday blogroll and I think the author just had a baby, so she may be backlogged. goto http://www.wordlesswednesday.com (or it may be blogspot) and follow the directions. I'm not on it yet either -nor thursday thirteen. But you can participate without being on the blogroll.

    Does that answer your question?

    Hi Kelly,

    This is the kind of roll I was looking for. It would be great if we could get all AW members to join. I recently implement the 'Bloggers Against Torture' blogroll to my own blog, and only did so now because of this cool new code I found. If you look at my blog it looks very cool.

    I'm not sure how it works, but I'll post it here and someone more knowledgable can decipher it for us.

    I'm not sure which of the graphics on your site coincides with the code you show here. But it would be great to have a graphic of some sort to link with the blogroll. I don't show the blogrolls that way on my site, but many people do, so it would be great. I just don't know anything about design. I can only copy/paste

    Look for the section in the sidebar with the graphic 'this blog is anti-torture.' The blogroll is quite long, but this condenses the 'roll to a small window that scrolls through the list, taking up far less room.

    okay - yes I did see that one. It's a good way to condense the blogroll.

    hi kelly

    it doesn't seem to be working for me! i've checked some of the blogs where people say they have added the code but for the life of me i don't see what's happening. when i added it to mine i just got a blank banner at the top of the page - not too appealing - so i took it off

    can you pls provide a link to a page where it is working so i can see what it's supposed to do/look like etc

    Talia - I'm not sure why it didn't work for you. If you go to Simran's (Judi S) blog, she has it on her sidebar. It's just a list, nothing fancy at all at this point. On my blog, I use flooble's plus/minus condenser thingies, so teh AW roll is right in with the rest of my blogrolls (ride hand sidebar.)

    It shouldn't be a banner at all, just a list of links.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    By the way, you can also put a link on your sidebar that says AW BLOGROLL and direct it to a post. Then in the post, list the blogroll. I've done that before too.

    Oh, and Dawno - you're welcome! Glad I could finally give back to this incredible community (however small my contribution may be)

    I've rolled and clicked and commented plus a few other things too disgusting to mention. So when do I get my magic decoder ring?

    You blew it. Now you'll never get it

    But I put you on the roll anyway. Anyone that jumps through all those hoops

    Aw, gee whiz. I didn't mean to. It was just a small slip brought about by a sudden attack of profound dumbness on my part compounded by my being couth challenged.

    Oh well, one outta two ain't bad.
