Are you one of those WordPressers who leave comments only to realize that no one is able to link back to YOUR blog? You have a dis-connect!
Are you a frustrated WordPresser in that you don’t even know how to ask Support for what’s going on?
Have you gotten lost in WordPressForumWorld and looked on in horror with how some poor fools are being denigrated and humiliated with disdaining answers to stupid questions?
THERE ARE NO STUPID QUESTIONS. ONLY STUPID PEOPLE ASKING QUESTIONS.
(Sorry, couldn’t resist that.)
No, you are NOT stupid. You just don’t know what you don’t know. BUT… you do know there’s something you do not know.
I feel for you. I have been there. I, too, have been flustrated with how to seek the answer!
If I haven’t lost you yet, and you do have the issue I asked about in the very first sentence/question of this post; well, hot diggity! You are in the RIGHT SPOT at the RIGHT TIME! It’s a great feeling, isn’t it? Knowing that FINALLY, somebody is here to help you and not make you feel more stupid.
Here’s the situation: You leave a comment in a blog. You are hoping that the blogger and other readers might want to find your blog. But your name doesn’t LINK back to your blog! Goes nowhere, instead…
Everyone else’s comments link somewhere…. WHY NOT YOURS?
Issue: You have an empty box in your WordPress profile.
Solution: Enter your blog’s web address in the right box of your profile.
Three ways allow you to access your profile. If you are already in your dashboard, you can click on USERS, then PROFILE.
OR… in the upper right, there should be a “Howdy, (your name). [Sign out, My Profile]. You could do that.
If you are staring at your home page, the blue bar should have My Account in the far left spot. Fourth menu item down is Edit Profile.
OK, are you there? on the right side of this Profile Page is a big box with the title CONTACT INFO. The second box inside that is Website. Yours is most likely blank?
Enter the http://(yourname).wordpress.com URL. fyi, for what URL stands for, click here.
Update your profile and then come back here and let me know by leaving a comment. Being able to link back to your blog will tell us if it worked! 🙂
I’m also open to any corrections or suggestions. Sarcasm is welcome; meanness is NOT.
