I am creating a blogging challenge for myself.
I am going to cease linking to anything except in two instances:
1) If I am linking to something else that I wrote
2) I am linking to something that I have read which has had an influence on what I am saying. (So readers know what thoughts are original to me, and what thoughts I get from elsewhere.)
This will eliminate posts that say only “Hey, here’s a neat article I just read” Or “here’s a wonderfully sick and twisted site I just discovered.”
We’ll see how long it takes before I come up with more exceptions, or decide the challenge is over.
