Tip: Putting links in your sidebar

2 Sep 2008

Go to your dashboard. Click > Design. Click > Widgets.

Add “Links” to your sidebar. SAVE CHANGES!

Click > Write. Click > Link.

Add new links here, one at a time.

By creating a new category, you will create a new subheading for a list of links. The default subheading is “Blogroll.” If you link to sites that are not blogs, why not create a new subheading for them?
