|Those babies right there!|
Using the My New Life blog example I created in the DIY Blog Design post, I want to create a few pages to link to similar topics. This is where your tags & labels come in handy. Each post on the same topic should be labeled with the exact same tag. For example every DIY post should be labeled with DIY, every style post should be labeled with style, etc. Choose a label that describes the post & make sure to keep it consistant. Make sure it is relevant & not something random!
First let's visit a single post in the topic you'd like to link to, I am going to visit a food post on the My New Life blog because I want to link to all the posts on the foods I find & try.
http://www.mynewlife.blogspot.com/search/label/Food%20FindsIt is this URL that you will paste into the Web Address external link option under the Pages page. Navigate to Pages from your dashboard, select New Page then Web Adress. Paste the URL into the box, label the page & click Save.
**Please Note: You only have to do the steps above one time but remember to label each post you would like to show up with readers click this link with the same label.**
It is that simple! Now you have a custom navigation menu linking to all the regular features on your blog. If you want to get really fancy, check out the Blog Resources page for a little eCourse on making a Custom Text Based Horizontal Navigation Bar.
I hope you are enjoying your Thursday!
