Hi Jyoti,
Thanks for your comments on my blog, I am glad that you liked my blog and it's posts.

Regarding your enquiry, I am sorry I could not understand completely. But here is the normal procedure I follow:

1) Sign-in to your account, you see dashboard, select New post tab, click on it. It will opens into new window, write the title for ex: muggulu 1, now in the post upload image by selecting "Add image"
it will opens into new window saying Blogger:uploads, select your image by downloading from your files. and select upload image. when it is finished press done. It will show in your editing post.
When it is finished click publish post.

2) Now go to "Edit posts" select the view page that you have published. for ex: edit view Muggulu1 you will see like this, select view, you will see the page, copy the http stuff. Now select view blog, go to the side bar, go to space where you have created link lists for ex: muggulu, you will see repair tools, click on it, you will see window saying configure link list.
where there is new site url, paste the http stuff here,
Give a new site url name for ex: muggulu1. Now press "Add link" and save changes. that's it.

You do the same for every posts. I keep everything in different categories. So select only where the lists should go in categories respectively.

Hope you understood what I am saying. Drop me a comment, if you still got doubts.
