Housekeeping, blog style
No, my home doesn’t look like this:
Nor does it look like this
It’s somewhere in between the two extremes
As I’ve mentioned many times, we live in a dog house and the dogs allow us to live here…
as long as we feed them.
But that’s not the kind of housekeeping I want to discuss today or, possibly, EVER!
Today’s housekeeping topic?
Using another person’s blog as advertising
I have a monthly writing challenge (#TMAT120). During that one day a month I welcome links to other people’s blogs.
All other days, I ask that people
- refrain from adding a link unless I’ve specifically asked for one, or
- the person wanting to add the link has asked to do so — and I’ve said yes.
When you add a link that hasn’t been requested, it’s like painting an advertisement on someone’s home.
I’ve noticed that other bloggers have added a “no links” statement to their reply section (an indication that I’m not the only one struggling with this issue). Once I see that someone has added a link without asking, I remove it.
Am I guilty of unwanted linking? Probably. We all make mistakes in our exuberance. If so, please accept my apologies for the affront.
