Welcome back to BLOOMIN' BLOGGER SUNDAYS where every Sunday you can drop by for a blogging tip or two! This week I have two blogging tips for you. I will show you how to insert your blog link directly into your comments.....and because I just figured out today myself how to schedule this weekly ongoing post to post at midnight on Sunday mornings, I will go ahead and throw that tip in as well!!

**edit**** Change of plans....despite the fact of just figuring how to schedule this to post tomorrow, I'm going to go ahead and post this a day early, because I don't want to delay shouting out about the 31 giveaways below.....and in all honesty, I need the URL of this post to earn my entries for these 31 giveaways, :) But first.....your blogging tips. 

Inserting a link to your blog into your comments is SUPER easy! 

This is all you do! Copy & paste the code below to the bottom of your comment before posting. This is what mine looks like. Make sure you change the text I have highlighted to show your blog address and your blog name. 

 <a href="">The Bender Bunch</a>

That's it! Easy, right??

Scheduling a post to post at a specific time and date is just as easy!!

After you compose your post, over to the right of the page you will see a list that looks like this: 

  Click on
>set date and time 

Select your date and time, and click done, then publish. 

That's it! Your post will now automatically post at the the specific time and date you have chosen! 

Now you know how bloggers follow through on getting their featured posts up in such a timely manner and that they aren't just sitting at their computers at midnight.....which is what I used to think! I love now that I can type up my Bloomin' Blogger Sundays posts now beforehand.....when I have the time, and schedule them to post on Sundays at midnight, so they are available first thing on Sunday morning for those of you that may be following this Sunday post!!! 

**Please note: I am using the most recent blogger platform, so if you are using an older version of blogger, these directions may be a little different. 

I hope you found these tips useful for your blogging! Please feel free to send me any suggestions for future Bloomin' Blogger Sundays posts if there is something you would like to learn how to do. 

Before I go, I must share a JACKPOT of  fabulous giveaway finds!!

First, I found Holly's giveaway at Crisscross Applesauce in First Grade!

And then.....found that she has also been hosting a giveaway linky showcasing 29 other giveaways going on right now!!! One blog....30 giveaways!! How cool is that! 

Another giveaway I found today that is not listed above is from Brenda at Primary Inspired. She is hosting an 800 follower giveaway!!!! Be sure to stop over and enter!!! She is giving away 3 awesome prize packs!!


BLOG ON..........and happy Sunday! Hopefully you also have a 3-day weekend for President's Day! :)


  1. Thanks for the info. I am interested in how to make a button for a linky party or giveaway - can I just use my same button code or do I need a new one?

    Looking From Third to Fourth

    1. You could most certainly use your same button, but you will probably want to make a button that showcases your event and will draw bloggers in to your event. You would need a new code for your new button, as the code for your blog button will only display that button....hope that makes sense and answers your question!! If you refer back to my previous Bloomin' Blogger posts, there is a post that walks you through how to make a button. Hope this helps!!


  2. Thanks, I will go and check that post out!


I LOVE reading your comments, and replying! But the only way you'll get my reply is if you are a blogger and have that set up on your Blogger account, or if you come back to your comment to see if I've replied,(which is unlikely to happen). So please leave your email when you comment so that I can be sure you get my response!
