Adding Links to Your Posts

This is a public service announcement (PSA). I thought I'd share how to add a link in your posts so that you just click on the word instead of seeing the entire http: // www.blahblahblah info that, frankly, is just unattractive. Here's an example of how it works. If I wanted to post a link to my daughter Danya's blog I would go to her blog and copy the website address at the top of the page. Then I'd paste it into my post. It would look like this:

But I don't want it to look like that. So I click on the "Edit Html" tab and I see that in Html the information I just pasted looks like this:

< href=""> < /a>

The first part inside of these arrows: < > is the important part. Leave that alone. The next part where it repeats the information is where you want to change it. So I would delete that part and change it to look like this:

< href="">Danya's Blog < /a>

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle! Good luck and happy blogging!

I've recently had to learn to do this, too- since the toolbar with the link function at blogspot has been missing! It takes a little extra time but it's nice to know how to do it! :)

And thanks for stopping by my blog!
