I Really Don't Want To

Share this link with anyone. I figure the more people that visit and comment on their sites will lessen my chance to win. I know not many read my blog..I am a blogging virgin after all...and am not consistent and not a sewing machine fanatic as some others are, but sharing the info to even one reader lessens my chance to win because when you go and read what is going on you will be following also and piling up your to-do-list. But I cannot be selfish..that is not the right thing to do. So if you read this you can follow this link http://gudrun.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/06/minnesota-designer-blog-hop.html and see some great designers.
If anyone reads this and knows how to make my links smaller please let me know!!
Have a good day

Thank you for sharing this link. Now how do I make my list smaller? Really, I DO NOT want to make my list smaller. The more I can learn from others the better for me. I actually finished a table topper last night. Keep posting I love to read and learn.

I think the question was meaning how can you make the URL a smaller link. The one in the blog was...

There are a number of ways to make a URL smaller. The simplist one to show here is to go to a site like http://tinyurl.com to convert it. It also has a button you can add to your browser to make it easier to access in the future. You can either go with their fully converted link that is smaller, or you can plug in a name to make it visually closer to the site name.

Try this TinyURL converted link that I customized:

http://tinyurl.com/blog-hop

And here is the URL after a defaulted conversion by TinyURL:

http://tinyurl.com/l3sptc

Not too user friendly is it? It still works, but I like for a link to have a more human readable look to it. That's why I use their 2nd option to customize the result.
