More Blogging Tips ~ Shorten URLs for FREE!

 Welcome to

Blogger Tips & Tricks

 Shorten URLs for FREE!

Ever wondered how those ginormously long web links end up just a few characters long in other peoples posts? 
If you Microblog ie:- use Twitter, and are restricted  to 140 characters these tools are fabulous as they free up valuable typing space.

Here are a couple of links for nifty tools  that automatically shorten the URL for you.

Their spiel is this:

'Are you sick of posting URLs in emails only to have it break when sent causing the recipient to have to cut and paste it back together? Then you've come to the right place. By entering in a URL in the text field below, we will create a tiny URL that will not break in email postings and never expires.'

This is an excellent choice and there's the facility to add it to your Links toolbar. Plus there's no registration required and huge bonus in my opinion.

 This is what they say:

'Do more with your links - The new way to bookmark, organize, and share the things you care about online.

Organize your links - Bundle links privately or publicly around a theme. Invite collaborators.

Find stuff fast - Instantly find any link you’ve saved with our super speedy search. 

One-stop sharing - A single way to share your links across Facebook, Twitter, and email.'

This has two ways of shortening links.  One is in the top right-hand corner on the home page, just cut and past your link and click shorten or you can create a free account for the facility of extra tools.
