Tuesday Writing Essentials Spotlight

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on June 3, 2008 0 Comments

Good morning and welcome to Tuesday Writing Essentials, where you are welcome – and even encouraged – to spotlight your best work on Gather.

Just let us know what you consider your best work – preferably with a link, but if you have problems with that, just copy & paste the address, or give me as much info as you can (the exact title will do in many cases) and I will make the link for you.

Here’s a primer re: how to make a link – I’ve been posting it pretty regularly, so feel free to skip it if you don’t need it. You can jump right past this bit and get to reading :)

To Make Your Own Links

It really isn’t hard. Here’s how I do it:

I go to the article I want to make a link to in another window (or tab, depending on the browser), and do that copying thing.

Then I type <a href=””>whatever I want the link to say </a>

Then go back and put your cursor between the quotation marks (“”) and right-click and paste.

So – if I want to make a link to elizabeth e’s’s new photo essay about the wonderful world of reading, for example, I go there and copy the address of the article.

So http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977358706&nav=MyGather is now in my clipboard

(or, as my friend Lorr used to tell me, in my mouse)

<a href=”http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977358706&nav=MyGather “> Click here to see Hannah read</a>

becomes: Click here to see Hannah read

These are links contributed last week. If you stop by any of them, please do leave a comment no matter how long ago it was posted; it will get read!
