Why you SHOULD be livid at me

Truth is, I’m just as big a jerk for not linking to cool stuff as anyone else is. Yeah, yeah, I link up plenty enough. It’s easy to link to people who are smarter than me. Cooler than me. Better looking than me. Have better news judgment than me. Or, just have better access than me. That’s what my link blog is all about.

But, I had it all wrong and 162 comments is all the proof I needed.

I haven’t been looking for different ideas. Different blogs. New people who I don’t already know.

It’s a lot easier to link to Engadget or Dave Winer or Shelley Powers instead of trying to find someone who has a new idea, new way of saying the same old, same old.

I’m running through the blogs right now that were posted to that thread and there are some really interesting people there.

Thank you so much. My life is a lot richer today. That, in the end, is all that really matters. Watch my link blog expand…

  1. Robert, write what you want, when you want, and disclaim or not. People are going to like what you do or not regardless.

    I am puzzled though why you reference me in these, especially in comparison with Dave Winer. I’m not a ‘bloghold’ name, and whatever illusions I had of influence are long gone. It puzzles me, but it’s your space, do what you want.

    Now, I want a big Seagate drive because you mentioned my name and didn’t link.
