Links Rock

I love linking to people, and I love getting linked to.  Pageviews are cool, comments are awesome, but what really makes me feel validated is when other bloggers link to the Chimney.  Not just because it drives tons of traffic to my blog, but because someone else who feels the need to speak about something feels the need to point other people to my site.  They found it useful, useful enough that they want others to see it, too.  And, aside from inflating my ego and pretending I am more important than I really am, the main reason I started this blog was because I wanted to help people improve their writing.  There’s so much variety of good writing out there, but we can always use more.  I do have a big ego, but I don’t assume that anything I say will automatically be useful to someone, and so when a link comes in, saying “Your stuff was useful to me and I think it will be useful to others”, that really improves my mood.  As you may have guessed from the last post, I’ve been ina pretty bad mood lately, and so when I popped in to check my stats and saw I was getting linkage from a blog I have never heard of before–and round-up linkage, at that–it really perked me up.  Thanks, Fuzzy Mango. You really made my day. :)
