Linking directly to an email address will NOT protect it from spambots. To protect your email address from spambots, you'll need to avoid using the at and period signs (@ .) when sharing your email address anywhere on your blog. That's why you'll sometimes see people write their email addresses out like this: BLOGGUIDEBOOK {AT} gmail  {DOT}com.

NOTE: Picnik will soon go the way of the dinos...(many of Picnik's features will be available at Google+)
