Two Ways to shorten your long Blog URL

It is not a secret that my blogs has super long URL, and I must admit this is one of my biggest mistakes in blogging. Actually, my idea was to create phrases as my blogs’ URLs to make them unique. In fact, their former titles are also the URL. But I decided to change them to make them easier to type and to minimize typographical errors.

In case you do not notice, the URLs of my blogs are and which are composed of 47 and 45 characters respectively. Whew!

But after reading a great post from Kumo of Toast & Egg & Me, I learned that there is a solution to my problem. I can now transform my long URLs to shorter ones. Although my URLs are permanent and can never be changed, these shorter URLs are their equivalent.

This will be very helpful for me especially when I am at Twitter which has limited number of characters to be used. Another advantage of this tool is you can hide your affiliate links if you want to.

With this, I strongly suggest that you visit TinyURL and SnipURL, and choose what will fit you. Both of them has each unique feature and of course, free to use.

By the way, below is the Input box for TunyURL for you to try it on. Good luck!
