How do I create a link in my profile?

When sellers have links to their blogs in their profiles, sometimes it appears as plain text and other times as an actual link you can click on to get to the blog. I'd like to establish a link but can't figure out how to do so.

only links to other etsy pages show up as live links.

the others can be copied and pasted into browser windows.
for a clickable link you have to use http://
hope that helps
so your link would be
www.countryweekend.blogspot.com/

StemDesigns--thanks for sharing that! I need to do it right, too. I looked at countryweekend blog and liked it a lot. I invite anyone to follow mine. It is fairly new and I know it isn't like a lot of others I have seen, but I would love the follows and will keep trying to make it interesting...

all links are clickable that i see for facebook or where ever as I have the greasemonkey add on of linkification. You have to have firefox and all links will show up clickable if you have that download.
Normally on this site you are not permitted to have clickable links in your profile, so even having the http/ won't work unless you have Firefox.

Off site links are not live links - no matter how you type it in - unless the VIEWER is using the linkification add on in Firefox.
