How-To: Adding to your Blogroll

For Social Media Challenge #1, you’ll be creating a blogroll of the 10+ blogs you’re following in your RSS feed. A blogroll keeps your influences at your fingertips, and it’s a useful way to show visitors to your blog the places you use for information. It makes sense – if they like what you have to say, they might want to know who you like.

It’s easy to create and update this in WordPress:

  • Sign in to your blog and click “My Dashboards”
  • In the left column, go to Links > All Links
  • Click “Add New” (at the top next to “Links”) and fill in these blanks:
    • Name: What is the blog or blogger?
    • Web Address: The URL – be sure to include the http://
    • Description (OPTIONAL): Tell something about the blog
    • Categories: Default is “Blogroll” – you can create others if you like
  • Click the blue “Add Link” button on the left, and you’re done!
