Blog Etiquette

Heck, is that how to spell etiquette??? I'm so tired right now I haven't even got the energy to find out.

So my question as to blog etiquette ... are you allowed to just put people's blogs in your links or should you ask them first if it's okay? What if it's a blog you read but just have never commented on, would they find that strange to see they appear on someone else's links? This question is perplexing me. I have a number of blogs in my favourites on the computer, some of which I just read, some of which I comment on. Can I just start putting them on my links?

Played twilight lawn bowls tonight. Lots of fun, we won 18 to 8 ! And the best part tonight we won, they didn't just lose. We fought it out but we were on fire. And our team of three won the all important prestigious pen at the sausage sizzle afterwards!!!! All good fun.

I just link. I figure if they didn't want to be discussed, they wouldn't blast their blog out to anyone with an internet connection. The only weird thing is when people you don't know start linking to you. Not bad, just weird. Heehee.

I'm not sure what the etiquette is.There is probably a site somewher that would tell you. I have had people ask and others just do it. I use bloglines instead of linking. Then I only go there when there is a new post. It was taking too long checking them all and so many people don't post every single day.

I link without asking. Personally I love it when I stumble across a blog by someone who I've never heard of who has put me in their links list. It's kinda cool.

I actually have loads more blogs in my bloglines list than I have publicly linked on my blog, but I don't get around to updating it very often.

Good question. I just have people in my favourites, i'm not that good at all the techno stuff. I personally also don't do it because I don't like publicly to play favourites. I get very excited when I'm on someones but also occasionally think "that person comments every day, how come I'm not on theirs??" It's that ENFJ personality i think!! Anyway, not putting anyone's name down works for me as then no-one is the last picked!!
I thought we must both be Western district girls when I read thru' your blog and saw Tower hill and Hall's gap. Small workd. Tracey

that´s very sweet baby quilt you showed us the other day.
About etiquette, I quite agree with Julie. If someone has a blog, it is to be read, the more the merrier!
thanks for the comments on my blog

I link without asking. I used to have the Bloglines list on my blog, but it got so big I had to remove it. Thanks for your comment on my blog. That material is the backing for the Leukaemia quilts.
