KARI CHISHOLM CALLS ON PORTLAND FREELANCER TO LEARN TO LINK

The words were straightforward and direct: “Hey Bill... Your new bit of blog homework is to learn how to make links.” Who knows how Kari sensed some footdragging here? Who knows how Kari knew that Bill needed to be told, not asked. At any rate, this comment led to a frenzy of activity at the Portland Freelancer site. Weekends were canceled, production staff was rushed back from vacations and rehab. Publisher Bill McDonald gathered the troops and made a dramatic plea: “Look, damn it, Kari has been commenting here from the beginning. This request will be honored and it will be honored today!”

Bill:

I know that there is a saying about opinions and recta, but here's my 2 cents. Write first, link later. I've found that linking just about doubles the amount of time it takes to generate a blog entry. Write first, let the juices flow. If there is anything that is so obscure in interesting that it needs a link, then link it. Otherwise, do the linking if you have any time left over. Sometimes you will, most times you won't.

Following my advice ensures that you get your thoughts out first and others' thoughts linked later. Ain't that the point of blogging?
