Bless me Lord, for I am stumped.

Can someone tell me how to copy a link to a person's blog name without having to cut and paste their blog URLs, also? I see people do this all the time but  "Blogging for Dummies" doesn't seem to cover this. Please?
Every button I've tried to click on doesn't work and I need to have a few hairs left on my head. This is how I have to do it now:
Judy at Benmakesten  [Sorry Judy, I needed an example.] This takes forever as you can imagine, especially for a one-fingered typer. Well, I have more than 1 finger but the others refuse to cooperate. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it :)

Dear sweet, kind, loving , merciful, patient and helpful Father in Heaven,
Do you infuse computer knowledge, too? Every hair on my head is counted
and I'm running short.  If so, here I am!
                              Your loving daughter,

Think I buttered Him up enough? :)


  1. Maybe I am not understanding your question (in which case, I will learn something too if someone answers you), but I just highlight the name, click on the icon that looks like a globe with a something-or-other (not sure what that is...third icon from left in blogger), and then insert the URL. Maybe this helps, or maybe that is what you are already doing...

    Happy New Year!

  2. OK mary,
    I think this is what you are looking for.
    1.Highlight the text in your post that you want linked-ex: Judy at BenMakesTen(her ears must be ringing by now :)You can highlight whatever part or all of it.
    2.Click the link symbol in the toolbar where you are writing your post and you will see a box that asks for the web address.
    3.Then go to Judy's homepage or post page if you want to link a particular post and copy and paste that address in the link box.
    When you return to your post what you highlighted will appear in another color as a link.
    There is some going back and forth between your post and what you want to link but once you get the hang of it it's pretty simple.
    One note just make sure the http:// part is not repeated when you copy and paste.
    Hope this helps.

  3. Thank you all for your comments!
    That's what I needed to know! Thank you very much!

  4. Mary, you are so cute! I love how you worded your prayer for computer help. Yes, He counts every hair on your head and every cell that works underneath that hair!

    Karinann gives good advice, it should work!

  5. I have trouble posting links as well Mary, I am going to try what Karinann says and see if I can do it......great learning something new isn't it.......:-) Hugs

  6. Mary and friends,
    Glad I could be of service.

  7. Karinann,
    Thanks again! Usually I bug Colleen, but I figured I'd give her a break! I'm trying to get your award up :)

  8. If friends or God won't help, there is always St. Isidore of Seville. ;)

  9. Sarah,
    Who? Never heard of her until now. I'll take your word for it, though ;)

  10. Well EARS have been RINGING and...well...NOW I KNOW WHY!!! HA HA, you guys are too funny! THANKS FOR THE MENTION!!!!
    Looks like you have it all worked out Mary.
    I think perhaps what Diana sees as a "globe with something-or-other" is supposed to be a little "chain LINK"...took me a while to figure that one out myself...and maybe...I think "Isidore" is a "HE" not a "SHE" ::SMILE::
    Ok Mary...HIT IT! We are all waiting to see the marvelous NAME HYPERLINKS on your posts now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Just took me FOREVER to learn that and I had to pester my daughter and Nikki, from Catholic Christian Homeschooling until I understood...I thought I'd leap through the roof with JOY the first time I did it right, ha ha!
    We're all in this together MARE!
    God bless!

  11. Judy,
    Really? Isadore is a he? Is a name hyperlink just a name and if you click on it, it takes you to their site? If so, click on Sarah and Therese on my Sisters in faith post :) Mare is another nickname of mine :)

  12. St. Isadore of Seville is the patron saint of the internet, according to a post at Father Zuhlsdorf's "What Does the Prayer Really Say" blog. Father has a prayer to say before connecting to the internet, too.

  13. Too funny! I was suprised Judy wrote Mare.
    We've been calling you that as long as I can remember. :) Enjoying reading your posts this weekend as usual Mare!
