How do I make a “click here” link?

How to Reblog a Post?
You cannot reblog a page.
Go to the post and make sure you’re logged in.
On the top, there should be a grey bar, with the Like button and Reblog button. Just click on the Reblog button.
If you own more than one blog, you can choose which blog to reblog to. You can also add additional thoughts, but this is optional.
Click the blue “Reblog Post” button, and you’re done!

How do I see who followed my blog?
This link will show you the email addresses of all the people that followed your blog: http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?blog_subscribers
I just made a blog, why isn’t it showing up on Google?
It just takes a little time for your blog to gain popularity. Google will put your blog on its search results once you have gotten more hits.
Every blog starts out just like you, including Fantageville. So don’t worry!
How do I make a post/page password-protected?
How do I add banners/pictures to my sidebar?
Warning: Do NOT put advertisements on your sidebar that link to other non-WordPress sites, such as Swagbucks, Gifthulk, Lootpalace. I did, and my blog got suspended temporarily!!
If you have a LINK for your picture (e.g. from Google, Photobucket, etc):
Find the “Image” box and drag it over to the “Primary Widget Area”.
If you have the CODE for you picture (e.g. <a href=”blahblahblahweirdsymbols”><a)
Find the “Text” box and drag it over to the “Primary Widget Area”
