I also wanted to add that the trouble I was having is now fixed. The problem was that when I updated the code on my own blog the code was not right. The banner page on Top Mommy Blog left out my blog's ID name so when my fans clicked to vote there was no vote name attached to the click. I corrected this by adding my ID back yo the code. It looks like this
a title="top mom blogs" href="http://www.topmommyblogs.com/blogs/in.php?id=YOUR
TMB USER ID" and it goes in front of the img code.
