I just recently read this at evangelical outpost. I clearly saw the temptation to try and go for greatness by linking to bigger blogs so that they will then link to you and make you a bit more famous. I can honestly say that I am not guilty of this. Well, I sort of am now since I just linked to that post, but my motivation was pure.
Anyway, I am innocent not because I haven't thought of this already. The reason I am innocent is because I only figured out how to make links today. Right now, in fact. If you are able to click a link in this post, then I have been successful. I have taken a giant leap in the world of blog by figuring out how to link stuff. Actually, I didn't figure it out. As usual, I owe everything to Waterfall at asortofnotebook. She started me on this blog addiction that consumes so much of my time now, and she is my mentor in all things bloggish. It is only fitting that she should be among the first of my links!
Also, I'm not guilty of counting the number of hits I'm getting at my blog either. I don't have a counter, and I don't know how to get one. After reading the article at EO, I think I'll keep it that way. I measuer success by how many comments I get, which I check obsessively and compulsively all day long.:)
P.S. I was seriously tempted to add a link here to Pyromaniac's site just to see if I'd get blogspotted. But, I decided not to. I don't think that I could take that kind of publicity yet.
