Tried it Tuesday - Easy Hyperlinks



Hi everyone, it is Tuesday so I am linking up with Holly at the Fourth Grade Flipper for...



Today I want to share something that I tried this summer, that I was really not looking forward to, but it turned out to be super easy (although I am not actually finished using it for what I had planned -oops).

It is creating hyperlinks. Sorry to all my non-blogger friends, I guess this is not really interesting to you.

I have to admit html code scares me a wee bit. But I wanted to create hyperlinks in my TPT descriptions and then I read this post, by Deniece at This Little Piggy Reads, and I was saved :)

It is the website, aptly named, Easy Hyperlinks.

All you do, is go to the website, type in the link you want to attach to in the URL spot and the words you want displayed in the display text area and then hit construct link.





Then you can test the link (if you are a little OCD like me), copy the code and paste it where you want it!

And here it is...

It is available now!

Here is what it looks like on my TPT product description...


I love how easy this is - and if you are like me and can not write your own html code you should check it out.

  1. I have never heard of this site before! That is so much easier than what I do. I usually have to find where I linked something before and copy, paste, then edit it. Thanks for sharing a great tip!
