Permalinks

So it comes to this. Already, on my third blog entry, I'm talking about how I don't know Jack about blogging. For instance, in that entry explaining the U.S. in Iraq, you can see how messy it is. I did not even do the links in HTML, I just pasted the URL's on there. But nobody will ever read that, so I shouldn't get too wound up about it.

Looking at other people's blogs, I see these things called "permalinks." I don't know what a permalink is. There are so many of them, that it seems that the very pipeline of Internet/blog communication is grounded in them. And while, perhaps, I would do well to learn about them, I can't help but ask, what happens when this global warming thing really gets under way, and all the permalinks start melting? Won't our Internet pipeline buckle and spring a leak, causing untold environmental damage? Think about it.

Elrond,

If you click on the title of any of your posts. The url you go to it the permanent link (permalink) to your post.

Meaning, people can bookmark it or email it to people knowing that it will take them to that specific article.

This is in stead of linking to your home page where one can't be sure as of the muse that will be lurking at any given moment.

Let me know if you have any further questions about blogging and social media. :)

PS. I enjoy your stories and your writing style. Welcome to the blog-o-sphere.
