I did a blog yesterday that included clickable links in the text and Stickitoffee asked how I did it. Well the instructions are at the side (under Formatting) when you write your blog, but they are not very clear so this is a quick step by step guide.
Numbered lines are instructions, followed by a line underneath which is the actual characters you add to the body of the blog. Follow it exactly and it will work for you.

1; Type

"

2; Type the text that you want the reader to see as the link. For the purpose of this blog only I’ve put the following. Use whatever you want.

3; Type

"

4; Type

:

5; Go to the web page that you want to link to, highlight the address in the address bar and press ctrl and c simultaneously.

6; Return to your blog. Make sure that the cursor is still immediately after the last two characters that you typed (the ": bit) and press ctrl and v simultaneously.

That’s it. Six steps to include a link to a website of interest, or in this case a beautiful piece of music. Right click it and open in a new tab to find out……….

meanie this is great! thank you for the blog ~ its really useful ~ ive put it in my favourites so i wont forget. I shall have to do a blog to try it out now ~ best way to remember is to do it!

also, thank you for the music ~ its so relaxing ~ lovely piece ~ simple, pure, like a gentle wave or a breeze over the grass, leaves fluttering. I like music to put pictures in my mind and this does ~ hadnt heard it before ~ beautiful ~ thank you!

how about a piece of music everyday ~ that would be lovely!!??

Glad that it is useful!
It's a stunning piece of music, yet so simple.
A rolling blog with a new piece of music every day is a thought............

That's a great piece of music for putting a child to sleep isn't it....or an adult for that matter!

Mahler is quite popular in film music - I first heard him (knowingly) in the film Brazil.

i cant find that on youtube meanie ~ wanted to try it out! i thought mahler was quite 'heavy' and serious music ~ didnt realise it was used in films.

I saw the whole program one night (insomnia can be good). The conductor Charles Hazlewood came up with the idea to get a load of people with no experience to have a go, culminating in this "flash dance". It was a brilliant hours viewing!
It's a "northern" thing - the clogs were the staple footwear of miners apparently..........

most certainly!!!

i do like inspirational and surprisingly creative people like that. wish i was one. its just such a brilliant idea.
serendipidous???

1 Sep, 2011

 

Never thought of insomnia as serendipitous - very creative!!
