Almost every blog post you write will have some kind of link. One way to increase traffic to your site is to link to posts by other bloggers. When one of your readers clicks on the link to another bloggers post, the blogger will see it and it through their web counter or when they search for links to their blog on Technorati. They will most likely check out your blog and if it is a topic that interests them, they may start reading your blog and eventually link back to you either through their blogroll or in a post.
Here is how to create a link. Highlight the word you want to be your link with your cursor. In this case, we are going to link to a post I wrote a long time ago called How to Start Your Basic Blog. Once you've higlighted the text that you want to be your link, click on the green link icon in your menu bar. It will say, "Enter a URL." Copy and paste the URL of the web page that you want to link to in that box. Hit OK.
Your link will look like this: How to Start Your Basic Blog.
