get a request a day
for a ‘link exchange.’
This is the internet equivalent
of a stranger walking up to you
and asking for your wallet.
Only the insane say yes.
My readers are important to me
(if they weren’t,
would I blog every day for the past 5 years?).
I’m not going to hand them over to you
As Pamela Slim from
Escape From Cubicle Nation
““Link exchange” is a thing of the past.
Before someone knows
if they want to share you and your ideas
with their audience,
they want to get to know and trust you.”
Blogging is about building relationships.
Business is about building relationships.
Don’t ask for the ’sale’ on the first meet.
