  1. Thanks again for including a link to one of my posts, Debby.
    I wondered why one of the links on your post (the one about eBook piracy) looks different from all the others. Did you do something different when copying the link?

    1. My pleasure Hugh. As for the link, I’m not sure what you’re asking? I shared the link to your informative post and I also shared the direct link to the link checker. πŸ™‚

      1. It’s the way the links display on your post, Debby. The link for the eBook piracy post displays differently from all the other links. When looking at your post, the eBook link displays as a box you can click on rather than a line of letters (beginning https) of the post.

  2. Excellent links, Debby. I caught a few of these, but not all of them. I’m going to pop over and check them out. Thanks for vetting and collecting them! It’s a great resource for your followers. Hugs! Off to Anne’s. πŸ˜€
