How To Create A Pingback

I was asked on my Sunday Photo Fiction Blog by someone how to do a pingback, so I thought I would create a post on it with easy to follow images. Or at least I hope they are easy to follow.

Creating a pingback to someone else’s post can seem hard, but it is one of the easiest things to do. I am going to create one to my Sunday Photo Fiction blog.

I will start by typing the writing that I want to use as the pingback.
