Paste a link without a preview of the link's content

When pasting a link in a blog post, there is sometimes an embedded preview of the link’s content. How do we prevent that from happening?

In the following image, from my blog, the first link is what I would like, the second link, with the preview, is what I would like to prevent.

The trick is to additionally hold shift when pasting. So cmd+shift+v or ctrl+shift+v depending on your platform.
