Doing a feature on someone without asking them is more of a missed opportunity than a "faux pa" (sp) IMHO. I'd like to link back to a person when they do a feature on me and exchange the favor in some cases. I'd also like to make sure my name is spelled right and stuff... once someone linked to me and didn't even link to my blog or SCS'er gallery even which I thought was just odd.

Blogs that are successful function based on multiple link backs. Linking helps show your blog is active and "life". Ths also heps search engines find you. That's why a blog is different than a website; it's based on social marketing... it's the reason "YOU" were the Time Magazine person of the year!

Here is a great article about blogging successfully I just found the other day...

I should clarify that I don't spotlight someone's work or post a pic of their work....just their blog name and a link with an explanation on why their work inspires me. Honestly, I should (and will from now on) get permission because I don't even know if they read my blog or know that they inspire me so much so that I want to share it with other people.

I think everyone is saying that this sort of thing is ok to do... or am I confused? I keep getting emails from very nice stampers asking me if it's ok to just link out to me... and it is! Link away!!!

Wow, I never knew that. I mean, I knew that you needed to ask permission to link to a website but I figured blogs were different. Strange really since some people pour out the innermost feelings on their blog which is totally public.

Me too, anyone want to link my blog I'd be absolutely thrilled.

Now. I'd better go and check my links.

Cheers,
Angela

I think when they say link to a WEB site they are talking about a logo type link. Not a shout out to a great site or an html code link in the text of the blog. Correct....anyone?

Just keep in mind that I started this thread just to find out if there is any particular etiquette. I only asked because "one" and only one person asked me to remove them from my blog. I found out that it was religious based. (They have a different view point on religion than I do and they felt that they didn't want to be affiliated with any blogs that talk about anything Christian. Now, my blog is not a religious blog. LOL If you are one of my readers, you already know that! LOL, LOL...sorry.)

So, really, I have decided to link blogs and sites that I read or that I think my readers would enjoy. If someone doesn't want to be there, they can ask to be removed. Until then, it's not worth contacting everyone all over. I did contact a few and then I thought, ahh, the heck with it. I'm putting them up. And I do have some blogs that I put there because the person has been so supportive of my blog,and I want to direct a little traffic to theirs.

Now, maybe some people feel like, if they contact someone else first, that that person may reciprocate by doing the same thing. Of course, that's great if the other person is so inclined, however, I'm guess I finding that I don't have time to ask everyone if I can link to them so many don't even know that I do unless they read mine.

But I would suggest that you all don't take down any of your links. Most bloggers are majorly flattered that you would include them. I know I am and many have expressed the same "no permission needed" viewpoint that I have.

So blog away! Link away! Don't worry! The internet by nature is a "look at me" kind of place. If you want to say something private, the net is NOT the place to talk. Now if there is one site that everyone should link to theirs, It's Splitcoast. I hyperlink to it a lot in my entries and next time I do an update, I will add it to my favs.

Have a great day everyone!
Gina K.

I just stumbled upon this thread and now I feel really bad. I have never asked permission to add links of other people's blogs! My main reason for not asking though is because I don't want the other person to feel obligated to add a link to my blog.

I sure hope I haven't offended anyone!

You don't need to worry! I think the general concensus here is that this is an OK thing to do! Link away!
