You Can’t Fit a Square Title into a Round Url

For whatever reason I always mix up the format for markdown links.

Here are the possibilities (only one is valid):

  1. [](View my site)
  2. [View my site](  ← the correct one!
  3. ([View my site]
  4. (View my site)[]

I’ve come up with a mnemonic I’m going to try employing:

You can’t fit a square title into a round url.

It’s a variation of the idiom, “You can’t fit a square peg into a round hole.”

Square brackets. Round parentheses. You get it.
