Unfortunately, I am not a computer guru. I know enough to be dangerous.
With that being said, I am always testing how things work in this online world.
Testing to see how to create a blog - DONE.
Testing to see how to link from one place to another - DONE.
Testing to see how to create a URL from a word document - LEARNING.
I have found that one of the best tools to use for testing how the online world works is to use your blog or website. These are useful tools that don't just spread the word about your great invention or best selling novel ... Blogs and websites are also the essence of innovation, learning and moving forward.
The challenge I was having was creating a document in Word and then giving it a place on the Web; an address where I could use as a hyperlink.
This is my the result of my test, but first let me give you the back story .....
In a recent post I proudly announced the launching of a dream ... the birth of a company, Immortal Spark Publishing, LLC. ISP is currently focusing on a directory of services, information, and resources for those affected by sexual violence. One of the many goals of this resource tool is to bridge the gap between victims of sexual violence and the agencies and organizations who offer support, information and resources.
In an effort to promote the directory and assist the agencies listed within the over 500 pages, ISP is offering a unique and incredible opportunity to businesses and individuals.
That is the back story. I created a document on my computer - a letter providing information on a matter of great importance and an awesome opportunity - and uploaded the file to Scribd.com. From there a link was created.
I provide the link here.
Scribd.com is an excellent source for creating links for your documents. It makes it easier to share your work with others ... I recommend it to anyone who wants to get information to a wide audience in a timely manner.
I tested how to change my documents to a link and am greatly pleased with the results!
