Not a link trader

August 25 2004

For some reason, in the last week or so, I've received a ton of requests to link to pages/products/people from edbrill.com.  Generally speaking, I'm going to deny requests like this.  Why?  Well, there are a lot of ways to publicize your site/product/self, and while I'm flattered that this blog is seen as a magic potion, it's just one way.
I do read many many weblogs on a regular basis, and follow links regularly (which sometimes results in a lot of daydreaming and wasted time...I gotta get more focused).  Anyway, I link to things I see in the blogosphere or product-wise that interest me, but I'd like to make those choices on my own.  I mean, sometimes it is catchy stuff like different designs for the Lotus Notes welcome page, or analogies between baseball and business management, or poetry contests for friends...those deserve links, right?
I guess that's why we read weblogs.  They're like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you're going to get.
