I received an email a few days ago from someone who claims to be a big fan of this blog and wants to know if I would consider doing a link swap. Here is my public response. NO! Why am I saying no? Well, any weblog links on my website are those that I read on a daily/weekly basis. There are more that I read, but the ones listed are those that I recommend to my blog readers. As such, I have no intention of adding links just cause. While I’m flattered by this request, this person would have been better off coming to my site and leaving a comment or two. This is how I usually find some of my new reads. Besides, when I link to someone, I don’t expect them to link back to me. It’s nice if they do, but my feelings aren’t hurt if they don’t. So if this person wants to go ahead and link to me, great! But I’m going to have to spend some time reading your blog before I decide to link to you. And then, it won’t be because you want to link to me. It’s because I like what you have written and want to keep going back for more.
