Can any one help?

I am trying to put both my round 1 and round 2 stories in my signature and I go over the character count. How do you get around this?
I've seen others do it so I know it's possible

Are you shortening your links? Go to bitly.com

I'm so NOT the one that should be answering this because I struggle mightily every single time I want to post on this forum. The answer to your question involves using tinyurl.com (or bitly.com) to shorten the character count. 

This might be helpful (I didn't write it):  POSTING THE LINK IN YOUR SIGNATURE
One way to receive more feedback on your story is to include a link to your story here on the forum in the signature of your profile.  That way, when you post a review, writers will be able to find your story easier to return the favor.  Follow the steps below to add a signature:
     
      Click on the Member Control Panel (Upper Left Corner)
      Click on Profile Information
      Scroll Down to Signature
      Paste the line below and follow these steps:
      Read my Challenge #1 story titled YOUR STORY TITLE
      LINK=the link to your story.  Every forum post has a link, all you need to do is copy it from the browser bar.  For example, the link to this post is https://forums.nycmidnight.com/topic42030.html
      Since there is a limit to the number of characters allowed in your signature, you will need to shorten your link. You can go to http://www.bit.ly to create a shorter link.  For example, the bit.ly version of the above link is https://bit.ly/2UCK6Sd
      Post the shortened bit.ly version to replace "LINK".
      Adjust the text as necessary.  The text you can edit is "Read my Challenge #1 story titled " and "YOUR STORY TITLE".  Please keep in mind that "YOUR STORY TITLE" will have the link attached to it.
      Save your profile details and you should now have a signature that reads "Read my Challenge #1 story titled YOUR STORY TITLE"
      That's it!
