How to Add your Link to an InLinkz Linky Link-Up

 Want to participate in an InLinkz Link-Up (linky)? These Link-Ups are used for linky parties (memes), giveaways, contests and other sharing. Participation just takes a few steps.

1. Click on the title of the blog post you want linked. Your page will refresh and the URL (direct web link) to that post will come up.
2. Highlight & copy that direct URL.
3. Click on the InLinkz Add your link button.
4. Fill out the entry fields that appear by pasting in the direct URL, the name you want to appear (doesn't have to be the name of the post) and your email address, then click Next Step ! (If it's a text only Link-Up then you are done at this point)

5. The next page will appear with images from your post/blog. When that has loaded click Select for the photo you want to appear in the InLinkz Link-Up. Now the page where you entered appears and your link has been added. The InLinkz processing image will appear. It should disappear when you refresh after a minute or two.
Of all the Link-Up sites out there I highly recommend InLinkz. Their text only Link-Ups (linkies) are free, but the use of thumbnail is a minimal cost of $1.99/month or $10.99/6 months or $19.99/year. Starting a collection for an Link-Up at InLinkz is fairly straight-forward and there are all kinds of parameters & moderation you can put on your linky collection. Check out InLinkz today!

Hi, I am having trouble linking up my Giveaway Hop. I know how to link up, do it all the time, but for some reason the InLinkz gives me a Syntax Error for this link

Do you know how to fix this so I can add my link up.

It seems as if your label is the problem here. I don't think it likes the ' after Lovin.
