Today's post has to do with a question on blogger etiquette. Definitely not something I know much about.
I guess what I'm looking for is answers and opinions on it.
As you can tell this is a new blog, this post being the fifth so far. This blogging endeavor has been a success so far for me. Of course my definition of success may vary wildly from yours. But in less than a week here I've got a few followers, and a few people commenting on my drivel. And that's been a pleasant surprise.
While I'm not obsessed with getting traffic here I do want to get some regular readers. Another thing I've found is a number of great blogs to read myself. (That's where the question on etiquette is going to come into play, if I ever get around to actually asking about it.)
I started looking for blogs to read by using the "Next Blog" tab. While I did find a couple of blogs I liked I also found that this was not a very efficient way to find blogs that interested me. So I went back to the blogs I liked and saw they were getting regular comments from people. And so I followed those people back to their blogs and found more blogs to read that I like.
So here I am finally getting to the question I have. I've added people to my blog roll when I've found I want to keep reading them. The question I have is should permission be asked of them to do this? (I know, I know, this is kind of like putting the cart in front of the horse since I've already got a blog roll formed.) But hey, if the normal procedure is to ask first before adding them to a blog roll I'm up for it from this point on.
