Because some bloggers ask… and there is not a real definite place to send them on how to actually create a Linky… I am going to throw this in a blog post so that way if anyone else needs it they can find it. =) So here it is… how to set up a Linky Party!
I always use Linky Tools. I think it was free to join, or maybe a few dollars for the year. Either way, it’s super simple and quick and can generate a lot of traffic for you!
Create your log in or log in like normal and you will be taken to the screen below. In the bottom right hand corner is says Create “A New Linky,” click there.
Next you will see the box below. Enter a name for your linky. I always increase my Length to like 300, just because you never now. =) But if you make it too big I have found it will create funny spaces in your blog post. So if you get funny spaces, lower this number and it should fix it. I also do the second smallest box, just because if they are too big it takes up too much space in your blog post.
This is what it looks like if you get the code. Just copy and paste it into the HTML compose area in blogger. You will not see it in the post during compose, but when you will when you go into preview.
That’s it! Pretty simple. Now there are all sorts of blog posts on Linky Etiquette, as I find those I will link them into this blog post for reference. (If you have one or know of one, please comment below and I will pull it up to the blog post so people can be fully aware!)
And just FYI, I am no expert by any means, so if you have any tips or tricks, please feel free to comment them below!
Have a great day!
