Thank you to all of my new readers, and all of my long-term loyal readers. I love you all.Now, since I’ve said the special three little words to you, do you think we are on intimate enough terms that you might tell me if I had broccoli in my teeth? You would tell me, right?
Well, in that case, I have something to tell you, too. I noticed that you are following me, and I want to follow you back, but I can’t! You didn’t put a link with your thumbnail sketch!Now, if you have a distinctive blog name, like for example, “Sundaes on Saturdays,” then it is pretty easy for me to google it and find you. However, if by your picture it merely says “Ann,” then guess what! Not so easy to find you.
How long has this been going on for you? For myself, I was without a link for almost two years. Two years of stupidity, fixed in an instant when my brilliant bloggy pal Tracie (at Crack You Whip) was kind enough to set me straight. So, I am paying it forward and setting YOU straight.I know you are panicking right now (“Does she mean me? I have the link, right? She can’t mean me!”). I do mean you. And I am going to walk you through how to fix it.
(First, click on your thumbnail pic on someone’s blog you follow and see if it DOES come up with your link. YOUR link, not the link to other blogs you follow. If it does not, then follow these easy steps below to fix it right now. It only takes a second.)Step 1. Click “Join this site” on some blog you want to follow (that you do not already follow). To make this fast and painless, randomly choose someone from my 400 followers over there on the right. ---->> yeah, one of them ---->>
Step 2. When the screen pops up and says “follow blog,” do NOT click on it! Instead, click on the button immediately to the right that says “More options.”Step 3. The more options screen will take you to a screen that says “Add links.” Click on it! Add your link! Make sure you add the entire long name with the whole http thing, for example like this:
That’s it! Aren’t you glad we can tell each other the truth? (And the good news is: it updates all your thumbnails pics on all your blogs you follow already, so you do not have to go back to other blogs and modify it or anything. You are done!)
You're welcome. And I can't wait to follow you back now!
