Okay, so this post is just surfacing a link to a long tutorial that Katie Silverio wrote, without crediting her, so not thrilled about that.

But it's exactly the tutorial I'd been looking for to flesh out a "further reading" footnote, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. :) :P

Hi! I'm new to, how did you add someone's profile to your message like that? Will do it in the future!


Hi, Brendan! Welcome to DEV!

In general, it's best practice to write the author's name down when sharing their work, even w/o a fancy link like these, so that people don't think you're spamming trying to get "clicks" for yourself using other people's writing.

It's also great for those authors' careers to give them a signal boost as people you think do quality work!
