How to Link to a Linky Party

Linky parties are a great way to connect with other bloggers, make new friends, inspire and BE inspired!  They are a  great way to get your blog noticed too.  Each week there are some amazing parties.  The parties that I join can be found on my parties page at the top of my blog.

When I began blogging (October marks one year for me) I hadn't the slightest clue how this all works, so trust me, you're not alone if you haven't figured out how to join a party. 

I've recently received a couple of emails asking how to link to a party, so I decided that I'd do a tutorial for those of you that don't know how to link up. I don't want anyone NOT joining the fun, because they don't know how to. So if you have a blog, read on...

It's actually easy, peasy.  This is how you do it:
Let's pretend that I'm going to link my Everyday Message Center Dry Erase Print post. Begin at your own blog.  Right click on the POST title (on your own blog) that you want to link up and click "Copy Link Location."
Next find a party that you want to link to. (My party is every Thursday, right here on the blog homepage.)  Scroll to the bottom of the post and click on the "click here to enter."
The next page will look like this:
#1 - Paste your POST URL into this area (the one that you copied from your blog.)
#2 - Enter a short description of your post (this will show up underneath the little photo)
#3 - Enter your email address.  Your name area is usually optional.
#4 - Choose auto crop or let me crop my own image (I always choose let me crop my own image)
#5 - Click on the From Web button
You will then be directed to a page with lots of photo's from your post.  Choose the one that you want to show up at the party.
Then, with your mouse, move that little box to where you want the photo cropped.

And lastly, click on the "Click here to crop your image..."  AND that's it.  You are done.  

If you want to double check to see if your link appeared, scroll back down to the bottom of the party post & it should be there.  Sometimes it takes a few minutes for the image to show up, but if you followed all the steps properly, it will show.

Now that you all know how to link to a linky party, I'd LOVE to have you join my Delightfully Inspiring Thursday Party each week.  Hope to see you there!
