[quote] I’ve taken the link-blog format Gruber popularized and found my own way with it, and hopefully, that provides value and differentiation for readers. And I highly suggest to other writers that they find their own way.
Rather than letting my links tell a story arc with minimal commentary, I use link posts as a formatting convenience when I have a paragraph or three in response, but not enough material or time for an article. If I don’t have anything meaningful to say about a link, or if Gruber already did a better job of commenting on it, I’ll usually pass on it.[/quote]
Totally agree, they are lots of individuals with opinions on various topics. Linking gives us the opportunity to express our opinions without replicating or writing time consuming posts.
