Is there any way to add a link to an existing travel blog? I realize there is a option to create a new blog but that is not what I mean.

You can edit and republish any old blog entry, yes. Hover over the blog entry in your blog management area's overview of all blog entries (manage -> entries), and the "edit" link will appear to the right of the title. (Yes, this sucks om touch devices. If it's one of the last few entries, then the "overview" tab will have an edit link that works without hovering.)

Oh wait, you're not talking about editing posts on a travellerpoint's blog - but how to link from your profile to a full blog you run somewhere else?

Once you reach "Full Member" status, you can add a website link to your profile under the section "Elsewhere Online". Until then you can't, to help us cut down on profile spam (of which we used to see a lot).
You'll reach "Full Member" status automatically just by participating in the various sections of the site; though it's not just based on quantity of contributions, but also on time spent.

When I read this question, I thought you meant you wanted to link blogs together into the story of a whole trip with separate sections.

If you want to add a link to your profile, use Sander's directions.

But I do my blogs on TP a little differently than most people. I write the blogs in sections, and then link them together chronologically so you can get from - say - a trip I did in the fall of 2004 where we took a cruise to Bermuda, to the trip we did in the Winter of 2004 and the Spring of 2005. And I think you can do this with any link. So if you wanted to link to a page that you made on a different site about a Grand Canyon visit that was on WordPress to a longer trip, you could put the link into the narrative.

I have done two links in this post. One to Bermuda in 2004 and the other to Winter 2004. You use the little green globe with the chain link on it to put in your URL
