Technically Challenged Blogger Needs Help

I admit to being seriously technically challenged. When I see anything that looks like //\\.gfaaddlepat.\\/#@ I run the other direction and tune out. Since programers have made things easier for Mo Rons like me by putting buttons with actual words like Save, Delete, Copy... I've had an easier time.

But I'm really stuck when it comes to blogger and trying to link things to my blog. For instance, I want to post a link to the query tracker web site. So I open up query tracker and I copy paste the URL into my blog here: But this is just a dead string of blah blah blah. On most peoples blogs, you'd be able to click on that link, and it would take you right to that site.

So then I try this (Add enclosure link) thing that I see. Again, I cut and paste the URL, past the http://. When I preview, there is no link.

Then I tried to create a link to the post, but that didn't work either.

I've looked at the help available for blogger, and it's all greek to me.

So does anyone have any advice for me? I would love to be able to link to other sites.


  1. Hi Melissa,

    When you write a new blog (or edit an existing one), there's a blue "Link" button just above the text box where you write your blog in.

    If you push it, a little window will pop up with "Display" - that's the neat little text, like QueryTracker, and then it says something like "Where would you like this to link to", and that's where you paste your link.

    Just ask if that sounded confusing :)

  2. Okay, cool, I'll try that. Thanks Tessa!
