I was texting with my buddy Mark M. tonight, and the topic was bloggers who link other bloggers with extraordinary regularity. To the point of the raised eyebrow.
I don't consider these things to be sexual, regardless of gender. I do find them to be sadly self-referential, and at some odd point hilarious. And, amazingly, the blogger so graced by another blogger's staccato links finds themself generating more and more of the same. Shocker: Ivan Pavlov played with dogs.
Me? I tend to write better after an insult or two. Especially if one graces me with a link to prove my parlous lack of intelligence, wit, or relevance.
Not that they are right, of course. I'm the best there ever was. I just hide a bit of it, lest you go all crazy, and form fan clubs and such. Or, God Forbid, start linking me.
