It is often small things that make my day.

Today, for example, I was looking for an answer on how to leave a “trackback” (or how to do a trackback, if you prefer this description) to a post of another blog so it appears in the comment section of that particular blog post. (To which blog post I’m about to link to, I’m going to let you know in the next post, once I’m done with THIS post.)

What did I do and how did I find proper How To advice?

How good we have Mother Google! A link to a post of Kirsten Farris appeared on the 10th position for my quoted search “how to leave a trackback”. It was exactly the advice I was looking for (thank you so much, Kirsten!). And if I’m not a dump fool to make it wrong after her excellent How To, I should now appear in HER comments section with a trackback connecting our blogs (and readers) together. :-)

That’s about it.

Now off writing that other post where I’m going to “trackback link” to a post on another blog.
