Blogrolls and Linkages
A quote from Almost Girl:
For most people in the blogosphere the blogroll is pretty important. I must admit that I totally love seeing myself on the blogrolls of other people I respect ...
(And the post goes on to say really nice things about ME. Thanks Julie!)
For those of you who weren't around then, I'd like to indulge in a little nostalgia. I had been blogging for just 3 months (this was before Coutorture) when I wrote this post. A quote:
I confess that I'm mystified by blog-itics (the politics of getting noticed in the blogosphere). The notion that value is measured by the number of other bloggers linking to you puzzles me; does that mean that because my sister and my husband own the only blogs that link to mine, my content is of little value?
Both Julie and Danielle responded with very encouraging comments. Thank you both.
Unknowingly, Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer has also encouraged me in considering blogrolls, just by her straight-forward and gracious explanation of how her blogroll works. Thanks Shannon.
I'm still figuring out my own system. I'm no longer up-tight about who links to me and who doesn't. And I'm very much looking forward to the day when I can actually read all my own linkages.
