Adding Links to Your Posts
One of the neat things about a blog is the ability to link to other pages on the Web, via the use of inline hyperlinks. Fortunately, Blogger makes it easy to add links to your post.

Adding Labels to Your Posts
When you get a lot of posts in your blog, it becomes increasingly difficult to find any particular post. You can make this easier for your blog visitors by using labels to categorize your posts. Visitors can then click a label in the label list to view all posts related to that particular topic.
