Links Opening In New Window

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

I was talking to my friend, Amy, yesterday and she told me of a frustration she has had when looking at the blog. She said it frustrates her to be reading a post, click on an embedded link, and then leave the post she is reading to go to the new one. I agree! That would drive me crazy.

From now on, I will be making all links open in new windows. I will work through all previous posts to do the same, but as you can imagine that will take some time. Just know that all posts published from today forward will have all links open in new windows. Click away! Thanks Amy!

    If you right click on a link you can choose to open it in a new window or a new tab.

    If push shift and click on the link on pc, a new window will open…regardless of how it is set up on the site.

    Me, too, Brenda. Thanks Rachel and LC for the tips. I will put them into the post so people can do that until I get them all changed over…which will probably take a couple of years 😉
