I consider being ‘linked’ in somebody else’s blog or website a sign of respect. Linking somebody is an acknowledgment that another is worthy of your recommendation. If you link somebody, you ‘vouch’ for them in a sense. It’s a kind gesture, worthy of honor. But, it is not unconditional. If I show somebody respect, I would expect to be held in the same regard and have the same respect shown to me. If not, i can only assume we are nemesis.
Given that. A few links have been removed from my site:
Vanbergs.wordpress.com will have a grace period due to site overhaul.
I encourage all to review their links. Carefully consider who is / is not linked on your website. It shows constitution, and should not be taken lightly!
