A bonus tip for you today: on using InLinkz

We've had a ton of questions lately about why people can't link more than one card to Inlinkz, when they see that others can. Here's why:

  • If you use your BLOG url (ie http://www.blogname.org) then you can only post one card per InLinkz. 
  • If you use the POST url (ie http://www.blogname.org/name-of-my-blog-post.html) then you can add multiple cards. (Note that for prizes you may or may not qualify for prizes for extra posts - but you're welcome to share.)

An additional reason to use the POST url: if anyone wants to go back and look at cards for a challenge or sketch using the InLinkz thumbnails, the blog urls only get them to the top of your blog - NOT to the post with the card on it. It's very frustrating to think they've gotten to the wrong place! So please use the POST urls when linking on our blog - we'd love more people to be able to come and see your card for a long time to come. :)

thanks for the tip!
I usually use the post url and I've not had a problem before, now I know why :)

Thanks for explaining! That even makes sense to me. I always use my post URL.

Very helpful post. It took me quite a while to figure this out (by chance) when I first started my blog so I am certain lots of folks will find this helpful to know.

Thanks. Now I know how people seen my newest posts on my blog when I hadn't posted to OWH. I didn't realize that the link didn't go straight to the card I posted. Now I do! I will try to remember for next time. Thanks. Donna S

Thanks for this tip! I tried it with my post for Sketch #57.

I have tried this before and using the exact "post" link, but I've still not been able to add more than one card per link on the same day.

I wonder what I am doing wrong?
