I'd like to have a link to my Blog showing beneath my "profile" when I post, but I can't figure out how to set it up. Please can someone instruct me? I know I need to go to my profile changes area, but then what? Help! Confused

You can always link to this page:

http://garden.org/blogs/view/JuneOntario/

So go to your profile, then click on "Change your public profile".

In the section for "Signature appearing below your posts:" you can place that link. You can use the [url] tag to make the link into words, like this:

[url="http://garden.org/blogs/view/JuneOntario/"]View my blog![ /url ]

which will then look like this:

View my blog!

(Just remove the spaces from the "[ /url ]" to make it work.)
