In order to stop (lessen) one of the most noisy/bothersome bees in my bonnet, I have started a new blog about the current state of nursing. I don't intend to post often, unless there is something particular in the news, or someone would like to contribute a post. But it is something I have been meaning to start for some time, and I'll see how it goes.
Please do visit if you have a moment. Sadly, I still haven't mastered the art of links to click on, but if you copy the link below, you'll find me. I look forward to any ideas/comments you many have. Oh - and you may be relieved to hear that Titch says he's having nothing to do with this, so horse-related topics are off-limits.
PS Librarian - a loyal follower - has just issued me with link instructions, and while I stil haven't quite mastered the art, she has added a link to the new blog in the comments following this post. See below.

New blog - what's gone wrong with nursing?

Hello Frances, let me try and explain how you can have clickable links in your posts. Even I can do it, so it is really easy.ReplyDelete
When you write your post, you are probably automatically on "compose". Next to where it says "compose", there is a button "HTML"; choose that one.
Write what you want to write, and when you get to the point where you wish to have a clickable link, type this:
The link between the two " is, of course, the one you want to link to; I have used your new blog as an example.
The bit between the > and the < is what people will see, and click on.
After the final > , you simply keep writing your text. Then you switch back from "HTML" to "compose", and - tadaa! - you have your post, clickable link included.
OK, so I have just realized that even comments use HTML - I didn't know, so here goes in slow motion:ReplyDelete
< a href = " http://realnursecampaign.blogspot.com/ " > new blog < / a > and do not make any spaces; I had to make all those spaces, otherwise you would not see what I have typed.
There is only one space you need to make, it sits between the first a and the href.
Will go over and take a look, frances.ReplyDelete
LIbrarian, thanks so much for going to all this trouble, but I'm afraid I'm still struggling!ReplyDelete
Jenny, please do. Oh - and if anyone thinks the blog's a good idea, I would be so grateful for a mention on your own blogs!
Will check it out, Frances. I only did ayear and a half of my nurse's training when I left school - then discoverd I didn't like hospitals! But I do remember the wonderful standards at the time.ReplyDelete
Have just visited your new blog - we need a campaign like that here!ReplyDelete
Say hello to Titch! :)

Frances, there's another way of inserting links. Go into 'compose' and write your post. Highlight the words you want place a link to. Click on 'link' in the menu and enter the URL.ReplyDelete
