Weekly Geeks #2: Linky Love

Pin It

From Dewey:

The theme for Week 2 is something I borrowed (yes, she said it was ok!) from Darla at Books and Other Thoughts. She says in her sidebar that if she reviews a book that you’ve reviewed, you can email her and she’ll link to it in her review. I love this idea for three reasons.

1. As a blog reader, I like that I can have my review linked in someone else’s blog.

2. As a blog reader, I like that if I’m interested in a book Darla writes about, there will be other reviews linked at the bottom of the page, so I can get other viewpoints. You can see how this works here.

3. As a blog writer, when I review a book, I often remember that I read someone else’s review at some point, but whose? And when? With Darla’s method, people tell her about their reviews, and she can see what they had to say about a book that is still fresh in her mind.

I'm adopting this policy as well. Have a look at my sidebar. All my reviews from 2008 are clickable. If you see something you've reviewed, please leave your link in the comment of the review. I'll add it to the bottom of the post.

If you have the time, all my 2007 reviews are organized in this post. Follow the link and comment.

That's it! I thought there was a reason that I was keeping them in the sidebar.

  1. Phew! It sounds a worthy, but complicated, process. Kudos for you for having the time and skill to be so organized.

  2. I was going to make a comment in your 2007 books read post, but it didn't have "comments" to click on.

    The only one I have a review on my blog for is To Kill a Mockingbird, since I havent been blogging for that long. I already put a link to your review on it.

    Here's the link to my review:
