I’ve had a few people write to me lately and ask for instructions on how to link a post to a link party. I had intended to write this post last Friday, and then completely forgot! So, for those of you wondering, here are the simple steps required so that you can join the fun. And don’t worry…you won’t have to remember how to find this post. I’ll be sure to include a link to it on all link parties from now on.
First, go to your blog to the specific blog post on your blog that you want to link. If the URL looks like this, then you are on your blog’s main page, and not on the specific blog post.
It will open up these boxes. Where it says “URL”, right click inside the box and choose “paste” to paste your blog post permalink in the box. In the “Name” box, write a short description of your project. And of course your email address goes in the “Email” box. Then click on the “Next Step” button.
It will then load all of the pictures that it finds on your blog post permalink, so scroll down until you find the picture that you want to use, and then select one of the two options under the photo. If you click “Select”, the program will crop your photo for you, and add it to the link party. That means you’re done! But I always like to crop my own photos, so I select “Crop”.
