Learning to link

O.K. blogging pros...tell me the easiest way to set up links to your wonderful blogs within my posts. I know it's not rocket science, but do I really have to type in all of the URLs?

I know that depending on your template, there are easier ways to do it than the way I do (with html code). But if no one can tell you the easy way, I'll be more than happy to explain how I do it. (Not that the way I do it is all that complicated, of course, or I'd never be able to do it!) E-mail me later if you don't get an easy solution, okay?

I don't use Blogger, so I may not can help. But, don't type in URL addresses, just cut and paste them. Much easier :)

I just switch over to the "edit html" tab in the window where I compose my posts. Then I do the following:

type <*a*href=" (minus the * which are preventing the code from working so you can see the actual code right now).
copy & paste to the site I want to link to. (this makes the process much quicker!)
type ">
type the way I want the link to actually look in my blog.
end with <*/*a> (again without the *)

so it would look like this (for a link to my blog -- and without the * of course):

<*a*href="*http://daybreak1012.*blogspot.*com"*>Thoughts From Along the Broken Road<*/a*>
and in your blog it would be a link that just looks like Thoughts From Along the Broken Road.

I don't use blogger so I'm no help! But I probably still wouldn't be much help if I did since Stacy does so much of my stuff...and some of what Dawn wrote looks like greek to me! I hope that helped you.
