How I Found Out I Can Set Target Links to Posts!
How did I learn this, well one of the teachers doing the challenge suggested this helps make an effective post. I never even dreamed of that one! It has shown me yet again, that visiting other blogs is a very important part of this challenge. I learn from it. Not many mentioned this aspect of a post. It wasn't until I happened in on Mel Cashen that I began to go on this mini exploration! Thanks Mel.
I have seen that done but I didn't know how to do it. I went on a rather long mission, tried various things suggested by people that didn't work for me. Well then I went to Blogger help. Of course, I know that should have been first port of call.
I then did some reading by Kay McGriff and she has a post on better blogging. She makes some good points. And she has her links opening in a window that closes!! Kay has obviously been blogging longer than myself. Or is just somewhat more savvy! At first I did the link using the link button but it was rather odd. However I tried it again without the button, just put in the html code and it was great. I have another new skill.
I wish I could go one step further and show the html for this, but I can't get it to stay in the html coding, it turns itself into text! Anway it can be found at Blogger help. Yes I could have linked but Blogger is being difficult and I am outa here!
