    An easier way courtesy of kedirekin

    "To link to a post, do a search (by author for example) and click the 'Show results as posts' radio button. When you click the desired post, the URL with the post ID will appear in the address bar. Then it's a simple copy and paste, though you may want to remove the &highlight parts."
