There is not much I dislike more than getting up in the morning and getting an email like this..
hello Sara, I found your website from (site removed). I have to admit its
really nice site and i just loved it. I was thinking if you want to do link
exchange with me. Although i dont know if my site will interest you in anyway. I
am still new and working hard on getting some back links. If you are okay with
link exchange then pleeaassseee email me back so i can add you in my blogroll
also. Thank you. Have a nice day N take care 🙂
I don’t mean to sound like a bitch, really I don’t. We all start out somewhere. But gosh damn this is one of those times I really wish there was a Terms and Conditions that had to be signed when you start blogging. Something to give you an idea of what the rules are, and what is proper netiquette when it comes to dealing with other bloggers.
Commandment #1- Thou shalt not request links from other bloggers.
Link exchange requests are lame. Really. Write good content, and the links will come, I promise. Doubly lame is requesting a link from someone you know and even admit to would have NO interest in your blog. Wtf?
What bad blogging behavior have you encountered? Rude comments? Double-linking to their site in your comments section? What would your personal commandment for blogging behavior be?
