I know this will get me in trouble, but I am posting it anyway!
Friday I got the following email:
Currently, we have your site Some Assembly Required, listed on our blogroll at www.phcconsulting.com/WordPress
We are going to delete those links on the blogroll that do not have a reciprocal link for us.
Please put a link to us and let us know so we can keep you in front of our readership!!!
Yikes. I do not know these people and I NEVER get traffic to my blog from them. I have always hated the concept of maditory link backs on blogrolls. I list many great blogs in my blog roll, but never do I want those writers to feel obligated to link to me. Sure, I love links as much as the next blogger....but this made me so mad that I blogged from my vacation.
It makes if fake if you demand the other to link to you...and if you threatten to delete them, is that not like payolla of some kind? It is just icky.
Have a great day.
