noticed some of you are having trouble using HTML code for the comment
boxes on the Exquisite Quills' daily memes. First off, please know it's
not necessary to your participation. It's just a buyer impulse-ready
link. Authors love those book buyer impulses. :)
Here's an example of what my personal links look like using HTML code:
<a href="http://calliopeswritingtablet.com/">Calliope's Writing Tablet</a>
<a href="http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B004XDGWL6">Amazon Author Page</a>
When I copy and paste them in the comment box and click the Publish button, this is what they look like:
Amazon Author Page
it's only my personal info that changes. The HTML code stays the same. I've
broken down my blog link so you can easily see all the parts needed.
I start with this bit of HTML code:
Then add my full link:
Then this little bit of HTML code:
Next, I name the link:
Calliope's Writing Tablet
Lastly, one more bit of HTML code:
make your own, either assemble your link a bit at a time, or copy and
past one or all of my links into a document. (Why retype Facebook and
Twitter etc if you're on those sites too?) Simply switch out my internet
addresses for yours.
<a href="HTTP://WWW.YOUR ADDRESS TEXT HERE">YOUR SITE NAME HERE</a>
very important not to have more spaces in the coding than what's
already there. Be sure not to close gaps that already exist. It won't work if you do. If you've tried
to do your links like this on the EQ blog but it isn't working for you, compare each unsuccessful
link to the info above. Chances are you have a space issue or a missing
bit of code.
That should do it. If you have questions, just ask in comments. I'll answer when able.
