Did you ever click on an image in a blog to get a better look? I know I have. Sometimes nothing happens. But sometimes the click takes you to a larger version.
But did you know that you can link your image to a webpage? So that when you click on the image you get transported to who-knows-where?
For example. Click on the photo on the right. Where does it take you?
Yes, I've just shamelessly used the photo as a marketing tool.
How do you do this on blogger? It's easy.
Click on the icon that allows you to insert an image. That should bring up a familiar screen where you choose your image and layout.
Place your image where you want it in your post.
Then, in the Compose tab, click on the photo once to select it. Then click on the link tool.
Insert the address and...Voila! Your image is linked!
As you saw, I linked the image directly to my Etsy shop. You can link the photo to a corresponding item in your shop (which I've done before and could directly attribute more views to it from my post). But if your item sells, then you have to remember to update your link.

Would you like to be a Contrariwise follower? (I love having more friends!) All you have to do is click on the link in the upper right on my side bar.
