Testing

This year/month I'm learning to put links in blog posts.

Now, here's a link to my review blog. Have I done it right?

Ok I don't think it worked entirely as planned. Sigh.

Um, no. :( Sorry. Are you clicking on the the 'add link' button and pasting in the link?

I was confused by this for a while too. The text you want to be the link, the clickable text that redirects to the other website, needs to be between the html with the web address < a href="LINK ADDRESS" > and the closing html < /a >.

So in this case: < a href="http://nayusreadingcorner.blogspot.com/" > Nayu's Reading Corner < /a >. And the "Nayu's Reading Corner" text will become the link. So you get Nayu's Reading Corner.

Remove all the spaces between the < > marks though.

If you're using Blogger's "add link" button, it'll write out all that html stuff with the web address you paste in. But I think you still might need to write in your own link text, and that would go between > and < like I showed above.

Hope that helps and wasn't too confusing.

Thanks - a fellow blogger tried explaining it like that in email. That way didn't work - I think I'll stick with blogger's link thingy :D

I've always just highlighted the words I wanted to be the link, then hit the 'add link' button and pasted the html into the window. It will turn the words (Nayu's Reading Corner) into the link without showing the html stuff. But maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're trying to do.
