I promise I'm really good on computers...but....

I'm still new to blogging and learn something new everyday...I'd like to know how you, hmm, not sure how to explain this.

If I want to refer back to a past blog or to a blogger, how do I do that, so that you can click on that word/name and it takes you directly there.
God, does that make any sense?

E.g. I was reading "XYZs" blog and it reminded me of something I wrote about hearts.

Now how would I link "XYZ" and "hearts" to the blogger and post respectively.

Oh dear.

Okay, the one way i know how to link to someone's blog, is adding the following html code (change the website & blog name where applicable)
To link to mine, you would add...
Vimbai's Blog

I'm having more trouble trying to link to my own previous blogposts, so if anyone has figured that out, holla at your girl!

This is called a TRACKBACK. In blogger, it's really easy - you just paste the link of the post you want to refer to in your post, and it will automatically notify the blog you're quoting from through something called "pinging".

Otherwise, really enjoying your blog! Keep up the awesome posts! :)

Ok. When you're writing your post, there's a button at the top that looks like a world with two chain links over it. Highlight the text you want to turn into a link, "hearts" for example, and click that button. It will open a box that you put the URL (the web address) in, click ok, and it turns the word hearts into a hyperlink.

Hope that helps!
