How can I stop my new Blog Posts coming up as comments on my older Blog Posts

  1. Whenever I post, it comes up as a post, but also then as a comment in my first and second blog posts! I just say delete comment but how do I stop this happening?

    The blog I need help with is desertdates.wordpress.com.

  2. Are you perchance linking to those posts within the new posts? That would make them come up as pingbacks, links.

  3. AHA! Yes I am totally linking to those posts.
    This makes sense, thanks.
    So I'll just delete them from comments?

  4. Yes, you can delete them.
    To prevent this from happening, you can use a truncated version of the URL when linking to your own posts - see here:
