To leave a link all you have to do is:
1) Click on "Create a Link" at the BOTTOM of the POST.
2) It will open a smaller window where all the linkage is already prefilled.
3) Click Publish Post.
And voila. You're done.
It took me so long to figure out how to write the code for this link so I'm quite proud of my meager hacker skills.
I can see who's created a link and will choose randomly from those who have. I will then post the winner's name and blog at the top of the post a week after it has been listed.
I'm guessing that I won't have a slew of posters, at least for now, so if you link, you might actually have a sporting chance of winning something!
I'll then get your address and send you the piece courtesy of Grosgrain:)
What do you all think of this? Neat idea? Not so much? Please let me know. I'd like to get your thoughts.
I'M GOING TO POST MY FIRST GIVEAWAY TOMORROW SO PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON!
In response to Joanna,
If you don't use blogger, just create a link using whatever site you are affiliated with and I will use Technorati to see who has posted. Just remember to link back to THE GIVEAWAY POST and not the main page. Just click on the title of the post to get to the post's page. Otherwise I can't tell what giveaway you entered.
Oh, and if anyone knows how to add a "blog it" link for Typepad or Wordpress to use on a Blogger page please let me know.
