Another Reason To Get Off My Butt And Make Something

Well, I'm still sitting at my computer, trying to get caught up with some blog reading.

Over at The Inkling Network is a tutorial to make a cute little baby owl brooch link via The Owl Barn.

And, now it's time for a rant:  Why can't Blogger set it up so that each link opens in a new window?!?!  God, this annoys me.

Also for Blogger:  why won't links work in preview mode anymore?  Maybe I'm the exception but I like to check my links before hitting Publish to make sure they work AND open in a new window and now I can't do that.

Ok, I feel better now.

UPDATE 9/24/15:  I can't believe I am doing this.  I'm updating this post from January 2011 because the link for the tutorial for the cute owl brooch no longer works.  THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD ALWAYS PRINT EVERYTHING OUT!!

You can find the link to the owl brooch tutorial as of 9/24/2015 here.

Blogger annoys the hell out of me too - particularly the upload photo. Save draft. Edit post. Select post. Upload photo. Repeat 20 times that I have to do every time I post!
If it's any consolation, whenever I open a link in a post, I right click and select "open in new tab". I don't like it when they open in a new window as I'm usually secretly blog reading at work with a little window open at the bottom and who knows where Microsoft will open my new window!

Oh, quit griping, Patty! LOL Here are instructions on how to make all your links open in a new window...

Hummm, my preview shows links. I wonder why yours doesn't?

I do the open in a new tab too just so I can see everything.

I've been uploading photos in blogger since I haven't been too many but if I had a lot I would upload to photobucket and then you just copy and paste the Direct Link which is nice because you can put them in the right order and not the way blogger uploads them :p
