This is a “how to” on adding html to your signature so that when you comment you can leave a direct link to your blog! No more copying and pasting URLs, other readers can click and go.
There are probably tech~savvy bloggers out there that do not need this tip; it’s pretty basic html so you can find it anywhere. But I have noticed in trawling through comments on blogs I read, a lot of the commenters have blogs, but do not do a direct link. Not that it’s all that big of a deal, but it does look slightly more serious when you have a link ~ like you mean business!
So my husband showed me the html you need to do a direct link a while ago, and I thought I’d share it with you.
b. of <a href="http://depictthis.blogspot.com">Depict This!</a>
It works like this:
1} Open Notepad or any basic text writer. You are going to write you signature in there and save it, so when you need it on the bottom of a comment you can just copy and paste.
2} Write your signature in Notepad. Mine is: “xox, b.” then put “of” or whatever else you would like. Do not forget to format the text, spacing, etc how you would like it to appear.
3} Then put in <a href=“ ”> </a>
Now in the example above you can see the text http://depictthis.blogspot.com. This is the URL of the website you want to link to. Substitute it with your website URL and put it between the quotation marks. Like so:
<a href=“www.exampleblog.com”> </a>
4} We are almost there! For the last step you put the name of your website in. This is the text that will actually be linked, so it is the place people can click on and be directed to your website.
<a href=“www.exampleblog.com”>Example Blog</a>
Now your signature should look like the one in purple, except with a different URL and name. You will now be able to copy and paste this into anywhere that accepts basic html.
I hope that this was helpful and easy to understand. If you have any questions, or want to know other html tricks, just let me know. :3
