Paste in the numbers you copied. Click “Add”. Now you have your short URL! gplus.to/calilewis Learn something new every day! How do YOU do it? We want to hear from you!

Or if you have your own server you can run the opensource short url program YOURLS. This will still involve getting a small url to use with it but it works great! I use YOURLs for all my clients.
