When HTNet was first conceived, I had a sidebar list full of links to blogs I find dear to my heart. It stayed on HTNet’s pages for more than a year. It also grew in size as I found more and more blogs that I visited frequently.
Then came a phase in my life where stupid things like Google PageRank and SEO brought out the linking “artist” in me. I came to the conclusion that linking liberally might be bad for HTNet’s own ranking.
About two weeks ago, I reached enlightenment and decided, “To hell with Google and other search engines! This is my blog and I can pretty much damn well link whoever I thought deserve it!”
