Storing Values In Variables

The code challenge question I'm struggling with is: Store the value of the text input element in the variable inputValue.

let inputValue = document.querySelectorAll("#linkName").value;
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="content">
            <label>Link Name:</label>
            <input type="text" id="linkName">
            <a id="link" href="https://teamtreehouse.com"></a>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

Awesome! Thanks that was it, I see I was selecting more elements than I needed.
