Woo Us To Your Blog – Magically Opening Links

Have you ever gone to a new site, hit a link that took you to another site and you can’t remember how to get back to the first site where you started?

I remember when I first started blogging, it happened to me all the time and it was very frustrating. There is a way to build a link that when clicked, will immediately open the desired site in a new tab.

Yes, I know that you can always right click the link and direct it to be opened in a new tab or a new window, but why take the chance that someone will always remember to open the link that way or that they are experienced enough to know to open the link with a right click?

Very simple!

Didn’t think you could learn HTML so easily? Sure you can!
