A Question of Protocol

With the help of my brilliant daughter, Hannah, I have figured out how to post images and how to set up a few links. There are several other blogs I would like to link to as well, but I had a little trouble making connections with anyone who is not working in Blogger.

Now for a somewhat stupid question: how does one go about having/asking/causing a linkee to link back to your blog? The sites I have listed are all by writers whose work I admire and I am not above begging. Just let me know what the protocol is. Thanks!

Hi! Well, speaking for myself, there's no need to ask--I've linked to you from my blog. As for others, I don't know...I do know that, for myself, I just waited for things to happen (not knowing, of course, if it would happen at all) in terms of others linking to my blog. You'll find that poetry-blogging is a small community, and if people like your blog, they'll link to it(!) :-)

That said, sometimes people do send e-mail requests asking for folks to link to them, but a) some bloggers don't like to get those e-mails, and b) you'll rarely find such e-mails particularly productive in terms of getting links to your blog.

Don't know what others think; that's just my two cents. Welcome aboard! Cheers,

P.S. Good to see another lawyer-poet in the community, too!

Thank you for your good advice. I will follow it.

I've seen your work in (I think it was) The Southern Review and also in the Legal Studies Forum. I very much admire your poems and your courageous and well-written blog.

Hi Greg! Thanks for linking to my blog. I'd have to agree: just link to the blogs you like, comment on what engages you, and you'll find those poets discovering yours as well.
