If you would like to have a direct link to your email from your blog simply choose an image that you wish to use as a contact link. (Mine is the antique typewriter.) Go up to "design" and click on "Add a Gadget" then choose "Add a Picture" upload the image you are going to use. In the "Link" box, simply type... Mailto:youremailaddress and that's it!! Now all your blog friends can contact you anytime they want. This is especially nice when they want to leave you a message but they don't want to do it in the comment section of your blog.
