Techy Tips - Email Signatures

Happy Techy Tuesday!!!!

Last week we talked about adding the same text or pictures automatically into each post (ie. your blog signature).

Jenny from The NY Melrose Family tweeted me {she has gotten me slightly obsessed with twitter:) } and asked if she could do the same to her email.  Great question!!!

Since Jenny uses gmail, let's start there!

Head over to the gear icon on the top right of your Gmail homepage.

Select "Settings".

Scroll down until you see "Signature".

Two buttons are of importance when creating your email signature.  You can add an image and also add links to your text.

For example...after clicking on the add an image button, you will be brought to this screen and asked to put in your image URL.  As discussed last week, I use photobucket to store my images.  I copied the URL from there.

You can also add text to your email signature.  This will allow your email readers to link directly back to your blog, your shop or whatever else you would like to include.

Once you are done it might look something like this....

When you are done, be sure to scroll down to the bottom and save your changes.

Compose a new email and voila!

Perhaps you are using something other then gmail?

For Hotmail users, same idea, just a different way of getting there:

As always, if you need help, don't hesitate to ask!!

Questions like this one are always welcomed:)

Linking up to these great parties:)
