The One About Links

Many new readers have sent me messages about my pretty small blogroll… actually, links to other blogs are pretty light in general. This isn’t due to, as some would believe, “jealousy” and “playa hating,” but because just about every blog in the blogosphere gets more traffic than I do, so I doubt a link on my site really generates much traffic for any site I do link. So, to review, it is because I’m a hack and few people read my daily missives. Or it could be that my genius escapes them (hey you believe what you want, and I’ll believe what I want!).

I mainly use my blogroll to access the blogs I read regularly… a few of them I’ve grown disinterested in, but I still keep them. Perhaps it is time to purge the lot of you?

The chances are I won’t link you even if you ask nicely. I only link the sites that I find entertaining and don’t care if they link me in return. This blog, despite my blogwhoring move of subscribing to blogexplosion, isn’t about traffic… it is about keeping the thoughts that prevented me from attending the really good colleges at bay. Some days I win… some days I don’t.

  1. Thank goodness I’m not the only one who feels this way about links. I hate seeing blogrolls that take up the whole screen. You know there is no way they are reading all of that stuff and I think it cheapens the link when there are 200 other links there too. I know this isn’t the norm in the blogging world and probably makes me a bad blogger, but I don’t like linking to people just because they link to me.

    By the way, I’m glad for your whoring because blogexplosion is how I discovered your very excellent site. I am enjoying reading it very much.
