As was pointed out a day or so ago, other folks' blogs seem to be periodically popping up as links to some of my posts. Now I have nothing against people linking my posts...in fact, I'm completely in favor of it. But the links seem to be generating spontaneously, without any action on the "linkee's" part or mine. And the links seem to have no relevance to the post they're linking.
Take, for example, the two links to yesterday's post. I can't find any relevant connection. I seriously doubt the linkee generated these links. Based on the fact that I know the linkee has visited here periodically, I'm confident the internet didn't just randomly select her blog out of all the blogs in the world, but how did the links appear?
If anyone knows how this came about, please educate me. I'm confused. (which is a natural state of affairs, but I've got enough to be confused about without any outside influences, thank you very much.)
P.S. If the linkee wishes to be un-linked, let me know by email (linked on my profile) and I think I have the technology to delete the links.
P.P.S. The word "link" was used 15 (now 16) times in this short post. I humbly regret its overuse and am amenable to any suggested substitutes or synonyms. Suggest away.
