Suzanne from Create Fun and Mess posted in her blog about not yet figuring out how to create links in posts, so I thought why not share what I do. Since, I am not trained to read or write HTML format, I do it the following manner.
1. In the "Compose" mode, I copied and pasted the web address.
2. Then I switch to the "Edit Html" tab. You see the portion where I underline? That is the part which I need to change.
3. Since the blog name is "Create Fun and Mess", I typed that in the part which I underlined earlier.
4. Lastly, I return to the "Compose" tab and I see the title of the link rather than the whole web addres.
There.... that is my non-Html way of doing it. It may not be the best and fastest way but it sure works for me.
Suzanne, I hope it will work for you too.
