I have decided to share a few blogger tips that I have learned along the way. I find this one particularly useful when I am entering giveaways/contests/games on other blogs.
Blogger Tip #1
Do you know how people will ask you to leave a link back in your comment if you blogged or twittered about something but when you copy and paste the link it's never clickable in your comment?
You (or they) always have to go through the hassle of highlighting, copying and pasting into the address bar when it would be much easier to just click the link (and it looks nicer too). Of course, in your main blog posts you have that handy dandy little link symbol that does the work for you but you don't have that in comments so here's how you do it.
Use the following code in your comments.
<a href="HTTP ADDRESS">CLICKABLE WORDING</a>
Put your http address between the quotes. Add your wording where I have CLICKABLE WORDING and you got it!
It looks a little confusing at first but once you learn the code it's simple to do.
Here is an example of how my link to my blog would look...
<a href="http://mycountryblogofthisandthat.blogspot.com/">My Country Blog of This and That</a>
and when I do this in my comments it will look like this...
My Country Blog of This and That
Much nicer than a long unclickable (or is it nonclickable??) http address!
Hope this is helpful to someone!
