Bloggy Tip... Creating links that open new windows

Have you ever wondered how to make a blog link open
in a new window???

This is important so that readers don't leave your page.
I always dislike clicking on a link and losing the blog I was actually at.

Wordpress has an option to do this built in but
blogger does not...
It's really very simple but does take a second to do...
Here's how in Blogger...

Make your blog post and link normally.
When you're done click onto the edit html tab.
Find the link and insert
somewhere in the link. Usually you should insert it between
"> within the A tag or link.

If you're still unsure...
Brent Riggs has a excellent video demo on how to do this
This is where I learned!!!

It might not sound so easy but watch his video,
it really is easy and I think it's worth it to
take the time to learn!!!!

Happy Blogging!!
Let me know if this helped you or confused you!!!
