  • How to post working blog links.

    Hello All!

    The main reason I am here is to help you get your application perfect, so toward that end I have created this sticky post because there seems to be a lot of problems with posting blog links specifically. I hope it helps!

    Posting a blog link...

    Step #1: First thing to do is find the RIGHT blog link.

    There are 2 ways to get to your blog page, as an AUTHOR or as a READER.

    If you enter your blog post as an AUTHOR, any links you capture from there will not work for other people who wish to follow the link so they can see your blog. This is how many folks first post the link to their blogs on their applications, and since such a link is only usable by the author of a blog, it does not qualify as an application link. To help prevent people from posting links that do not do anything in terms of guiding others to their blog I have written these instructions and included screen shots.

    Any time you click on The "Your Blog" you enter your blog posts immediately, but as an Author.

    See this link for an example of what NOT to do: http://s1132.photobucket.com/albums/...ent=image2.jpg

    To enter as a READER, you click on the "BLOGS" tab at the top of the PSO home page.

    See this link for an example: http://s1132.photobucket.com/albums/...ent=image3.jpg

    Step #2: Once you have entered your blog as a reader, you must find it.

    Unlike the "your blog" tab on the right of the page, which immediately takes you to your blogs so you can edit them, the "Blogs" tab at the top of the home page links you to ALL available blogs that you can read. Your's may be near the top of the list if it was recently approved for viewing, but it may have slid off the list and you will have to search for it.

    See this link for an example: http://s1132.photobucket.com/albums/...ent=image4.jpg

    Step #3: Posting the URL.

    Just in case you do not know where the URL is located that you must copy, and paste to your application, I will include another screen shot link for you. The URL is located above the page though, in the browser frame around the page data.

    see this link for an example: http://s1132.photobucket.com/albums/...ent=image1.jpg

    You can also use step 3 for your link to a thread you started, simply by opening the thread so you can see all the posts thereon, and copying that URL to your Member of the Month application.

    So there you have it, a step by step method for posting a blog link that works on your application, with screen shots to use as examples!

    If you still have problems after this, please feel free to pm me, and we can maybe set up a skype chat so I can walk you through it verbally.

    Good luck!
