Tutorial: Links in a Comment

Have you ever wished that your blog was more accessible? Or maybe you wanted to tell someone about a specific post in a comment, but you could only paste the web address, and not link it? If so, this is the post for you.
I am going to show you how to include a link in a comment.Like this. . .

You will be able to link to your blog in every comment you make, so that the person reading the comment can click directly through instead of clicking your name, which takes them to your profile, so that they can then click through to your blog. In other words, it simplifies the process.

There are a few prerequisites for linking in a comment. They follow:

You need to be able to type.
You need to know your web address.

Yes, it really is that easy. Here, let me show you.





See the typing below my comment? That is exactly what you need to do. Only where my web address is, you'll put yours, and where I said "Come check out my blog!" you can type whatever you want others to see.

So, a brief recap.
Type

Replace the words Your Blog Address with the web address.
Replace the words Your Text with the text you want people to see in the comment.

I have the link to my blog saved in notepad and then I just copy and paste rather than trying to remember all that typing every time.
If you have any questions, or are having a tough time figuring it out, email me with your web address, and I'll type it up for you in a document so that you can paste it into your comments.
Happy Posting!
