I love to link to other blogs of interest and to visit and comment on their posts often. After all, blogging is about communication. In fairness to and belief in those who read this blog, however, I strive to link only to blogs that show integrity and common decency. In reviewing links recently I discovered two that fell short of the standards I have set for this page. It is, after all, my page and my choice to link or not link to other blogs. The first was a situation where I was attacked without benefit of personal communication. The writer did not have all the facts but chose to anonymously lambast me based solely on the information at hand. To not check facts and get full information is, in my opinion, poor blogging. The second instance involved a group of bloggers who were maing fun of another blogger's posts by doing rather heartless imitations of content and style. Not every blog is set to everyone's taste, but eveyone is entitled to his or her own opinions and content.hose who would poke this kind of fun are not the type of folks that I want to share with my readers. Therefore, tonght my links list got smaller. As I explore the wonderful world of blogs and find pages that share my interests or give pertinent information, I will add then to my page. I would urge every blogger to visit your own links occasionally so that you know where you are referring your readers. Let's maintain some standards of fairness and integrity and keep blogging fun and clean. That's my opinion -- take it for what it's worth!
