Linking Made Simple (Bookmark This Post)


Linking Made Simple

(Scroll down or check archives for this week's Simply Snickers prompt.)


By popular request, here are simple instructions for creating active links for online comments. Follow these step-by-step instructions, and you will be linking in no time.

Basically, you will be cutting-and-pasting. Be sure to save your link codes, so you can adapt them for new posts!

Here’s a sample code.

[ a href="http://memeexpress.blogspot.com"] MEME EXPRESS – daily blog prompts [/a]

Replace the [ with a < and replace the ] with a >

Close up all word spacing. Letters and codes must run together without spacing.

Then you will produce this:

MEME EXPRESS – daily blog prompts

To produce your own link:

Replace the http address in my code with your own post’s http.

Replace the TITLE in my code with your own post’s title.


This will produce an active code link (hyperlink), which you can paste into comments you post, making it simpler for readers to visit and view your blog.
