I've seen people link to their blog within their review with a hyperlink. How is that done?
Thanks!

It depends on your device. From a computer you will usually see an icon to insert a link into your post. But there is no icon on my iTouch. I don't know if iPads offer the icons.
Or you could put it at the end- it would be the signature line in every one of your posts.
That is done on your profile page in the box to type in your signature. There is also a box to type in your website.

Please don't link your blog to a photo or picture in your review. By all means place a link, CLEARLY LABELLED, that you are now going to take us to your blog somewhere else in your review. If I click on your small picture I just want to go to a larger version of that photo, or something similar, not somewhere else entirely.
The reason? It is really annoying to be taken to someone's blog because that is generally quite a large download and those of us not on broadband widths have problems. In my case my machine has a panic attack and decides to stop working.
This means I then have to restart etc etc.
Also much as you love your words of wisdom and chat about your fabric or what your kids are doing I don't necessarily want to read them. If I am given a choice then I can choose to visit with you more - but I want that freedom of choice and my machine will thank you by behaving itself.

That's exactly what I'm asking. How to post a hyperlink to my blog WITHIN my review. My photos link to Flickr. Thanks

Thank you Sandi! I'm usually writing from my iPhone. I'll do it from my MacBook ext time to see if I have that option.

When writing a review, you should see the "insert a clickable link in your review" option. It appears above the major text box in which you write the review and when you click on the link, a second window opens. There you can enter the URL of your external link, the name you want to give the external link, and a box where you can grab the code needed to insert into your review.
