How to get to it
1. Login to wordpress. Go to your blog’s dashboard.

If you any doubts on the process, do get back to me.

  1. Nice of you to highlight this.Blogger has it too, and it is free link up if you have a domain. Else you can buy from Enom for $10. Atleast till some time back, WordPress used to charge $10 for linkup, domain cost extra. Has this changed guys?
