You could use custom fields and the get post meta function: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_post_meta to enter a custom link per post.
Worked great, thanks.
In my case, I created a custom field called link_to and then changed line 43 in index.php from the_permalink() to the_permalink($post->ID, ‘link_to’, true)
Sorry, posted wrong code above. My solution was as follows:
1. created a custom field called link_to
2. changed line 43 in index.php from the_permalink() to echo get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘link_to’, true)
