Leaving a direct link to your blog in your comments!

I think you'll like this one...I know I do!

You know how many of us leave our blog links in our comments to others? But they aren't live links so you have to do the cut and paste thingy to see someone's blog?



Well, this will help to make a live link back to your blog, which would be so wonderful! I mean, I just love finding new blogs...and I know you do too!

Here's what you do (it's very easy):

At the end of your comment, type the following code...


*Note: I had to leave some spaces so it wouldn't automatically make a live link...you should have NO spaces, except after the "a" in "a href".

So mine looks like this:


Once you hit "Post Comment", it will show as a live link back to your blog!!!

How cool is that?!? I made an example below in my comments section...never thought I would comment to myself before...

  16. Quick question- Do you have to retype it each time you comment or is there a way to save it?

  29. Not sure why - but my link in the post above goes back to your site (at least from my computer) - very strange, especially since I put in my blog. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!
