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!!!


Linking this to:

  1. Is that a little bit different than when you highlight a word or sentence and add a link to it? Thanks for the tutorial :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. I've always wondered how to start a blog party. I am clueless, and don't know where to begin to find such info.

  3. I am saving this- I had absolutely NO idea how to do this before. I just might do a linky when I get back home. xo Diana

  4. Thank you, Cindy Lou, I didn't know how to do this, now with your info, maybe I can. I am so happy to have your help.

  5. Hi Cindy - thanks for the tutorial! Hey, I have a question for you: how to you get those little buttons at the bottom of your posts (M/e/t/f)? Someone mentioned to me I should do that so they can "like" posts on/to facebook, but I don't know how. Thanks!

  6. Hi Cindy, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  7. Hi Cindy, I just read your tutorials and I'm in AWE. So much info, it's awesome. Thank you for sharing I'm one of your new followers, Elisa

  8. Hi Cindy,

    Great post! Your directions are easy. I think more people will join in link parties knowing how easy it is to add a link.
