Technical Ineptitude

As I said when I started, I'm still trying to get the hang of this blogging malarkey. I know the links don't work. I've been struggling getting to grips with mediafire and embedding and URLs and various different technical blah-de-blahs. As soon as I figure it out I'll sort out the links. It's driving me potty at the moment to be honest but I'm enjoying the other bits. Apologies etc

Hey there. I followed on from your post on AcidTed. Looking forward to your blogging. Best for 2010!

Just dealing with the linking thingy.

1. Use the hyperlink icon on the tool bar at the top of each post.

2. Click to open it. This will give a space for the url of the file.

3. When you load tracks in mediafire, once done they say "share", click on that and they open a range of bewildering options for the track. On the left hand side in the middle there is a url space with the file name.

4. Copy that url into the open link in blogger and accept it. The link should then be embedded in your post.

Thanks for your help guys. Have been following instructions. Not been successful yet and don't understand why- links don't show when I click publish. Me head hurts now and I've got stuff to do for my real job. Try again later/tomorrow.
