Blogging 101: Linking in a Comment

I've had a few different blogs over the past few years. One tool that I've utilized quite a bit is the link.  Many times I've wanted to leave my blog link or a link to some other website in a comment and didn't know how.  After a bit of research, I discovered that it was a very simple process using html tags.  In 11th grade I took an HTML programming class during a summer Governor's School program, but evidently the info just didn't stick.  I realize that many people probably know how to do this, but it is a very useful tidbit to know. So...

How to Leave a Link in a Comment (or other place using HTML tags)

<a href=""  >Whatever you want to appear in your link </a>                  

For instance if I wanted to leave a link to my blog:
<a href="">Teaching Living History Blog </a>

Your homework: Leave me a comment with a link to your blog or your favorite teacher resource :)
