How to Link Up Tutorial: Getting to the Party Page

Just click on the button that is shown in the blog post. Recently, InLinkz switched to a blue button as an alternative. It states “Click Here to Enter”. Some bloggers have created their own button, or use just a link saying something like “InLinkz linkup” or “Join the Party” or “Click here to the Party”. If so, just click the link.

If you haven’t  already an InLinkz account, you will be asked to create an InLinkz account. Once that’s done you are able to linkup when you are logged in.

Clicking the button or link opens a page that looks similar to the one below

Adding Your Post’s Link

Scroll down to the bottom of the page. There you will find another blue  button saying “Add your link”. This button looks like shown below

Fill Out the Form

Filling out the form serves to help other bloggers and readers finding your blog. It also helps to draw attention with a title or call to action to incent readers to go to your blog. It’s your chance to promo yourself.

Note that it automatically pulls your email. As a result, you will not see my email there, but yours. Some browser settings may prohibit it. In that case, you will have to add your email manually. You can use the link to your blog post or the link of your IG post. The screenshot below illustrates where you can find the URL of your blog post.

Selecting and Cropping an Image

You can use just the one that it had put in place of the frog thumbnail, which was in the unfilled form on the upper right corner, or select which image you want by just clicking “select.” You can also crop an image by clicking “crop” instead of select. Do the cropping and once you are happy with what you see hit done for the cropping. Once you have selected/cropped the thumbnail, hit the “done” button at the end of the page. You then can link up further posts or visit the posts others have linked up or go back to my blog by just clicking the images or the respective button.

Alternatively, this means instead of choosing an image from your post,  you can upload the link to your image or upload a photo from your laptop or whatever device you are using. All you would have to do is to click upload or image URL instead of selecting a photo from your IG or blog post. Once you are finished hit done like described above and your post is linked up. After hitting “done” you will see something like the following screenshot.
