I'm engaging you with "Reactions"

So, yesterday I read on the official blogger blog that I can put these cool little boxes below my posts to get some quick and easy feedback from my readers.

So, I add it. Poop, it doesn't work. I read more and learn that if my template is customized (which I did customize mine) it may not work. Normally, I would leave a comment asking for help and guidance from the google magicians - but HELLO? Google doesn't allow comments on their posts. Isn't this an oxymoron; they're writing about engaging readers but don't allow comments. I digress.

I decide to google "blogger reactions" and come across this blog which was written in August. They have explicit instructions on how to edit the html, which I have learned is not for the weak. Look at this screenshot of me editing the template:

Needless to say, this is my way of introducing "Reactions" to What's Better Than This, I hope you use it and use it often.
