How to Link Up to a Blog Party!

If you need to link up to a blog party and do not know how to put the blog's link in your post, this will help! If the pictures are too small, click on them to enlarge. First, go to your blog and go up to the top right and click on "New Post."

Next, you will see the space that you create the post in as usual. Type the name of the blog you want to link to. Then, highlight the name. (I DID NOT WRITE ANYTHING IN THE BOX. I AM JUST ILLUSTRATING WHERE IT IS ENTERED.)

Next, go up to the icon that is green. Click on it. (It is 2 icons to the right of the "b" for "bold." A drop-down menu will appear.

Put in the blog address of the blog and save it! Make sure that it reads:

For Whimsical Musings Magazine, I would put in (as an example)

That's it! You are done. Most people list the names of the link parties on the post at the bottom and then form the link for each one. (I will give you an example at the bottom of this post--It will be a link to The Graphics Fairy and Blogger's Bodega.)

Then, when you go to the blog where a party is that you want to join, click on their Linky and just join it!!

I hope that was helpful!!!

Google Adsense

Blogging Tip:

If you have ever considered making money from home, don't overlook the importance of putting Google Adsense to work on your blog. It's quick and easy--and you do not have to do much of anything to start hearing the sound of "Ka-ching" on your online space. Simply go to your template designer and click "Monetize" and go through the easy, peasy steps.

So, how does it work? Each time someone visits your blog and clicks on one of your ads, you will earn money--How cool is that? (Mine are actually underneath each post and on my sidebar.)

Savvy bloggers know that this can add up to "big bucks," so why not run ads that your followers would be interested in?

Give it some thought--and then, just do it because you may as well "get paid to blog!"
