How to Add a Signature Link in Comments

Let me share a simple way to add a signature link to your comments so others can find you. When you leave a comment on someone's post they'll more than likely want to see your blog (I know I do). A signature link makes it easy to find you. It saves several time-wasting steps of going to your profile and hunting for the blog site and/or figuring out which blog is the main one. Karen Amanda Hooper taught me how to do this, thanks Karen!

1. First you need a code. Don't run away, it's not complicated; I'm giving it to you! This is the code using my information:
<**a href=**http://wingedwriter.blogspot.com**>**Catherine Denton<**/a**>

2. Copy the above code into a word document and delete all the **s (Sorry, I had to separate them like this because the code wouldn't show up in this post unless I did).

3. Change the url address to your blog's address and change my name to your blog's name or whatever you want it to say. Then save it in the document.

4. Keep this word document on your desktop and copy the code when you know you'll be browsing blogs. Every time you comment on a blog, paste your code at the bottom so they'll be able to find you through the link. Mine looks like this:

The End. See? Wasn't that easy? Are you smiling? I hope so. If you're confused, feel free to ask more questions in the comments. 

Otherwise, I hope to see lots of signatures so I can hop to your blog and throw confetti!

  1. I've seen this done before, it seems like a great idea. I'd also like to customize my email signature as well.
