One of the sweet things about the blogging software I use here is that it searches the WordPress community and offers you links to other posts on the subject you’re (apparently) writing about. I used to reject those auto-links out of hand, but I’m feeling a little more communautaire these days and try to stick a couple in.
However the fact that it’s an automatic search leads to some… odd results. My post “First Impressions of Google+” was auto-linked by another – called “Google+ First Impression“. Which in turn links to…
- Google Plus: First impressions of a non-geek ! (trak.in)
- Google+ Thoughts (very early thoughts) (mastersuccessseminars.wordpress.com)
- My First Impressions Of Google+ (wired.com)
Damn it, could none of us think of an interesting title?
And for no apparent reason better than that it mentions the same city, a site pushing a restaurant voucher deal in Galway links to one of my recent posts.
The one called “Who Deserves To Die?” Can’t see that selling a lot of two-course meals for two with glass of wine or beer each.
This reminds me, I entirely forgot to mention that I’ve opened a link section here now – or “Blogroll” as WordPress likes to call it for some misguided reason. Here I link to some blogs I occasionally read myself. It should be over to the right there somewhere. So if you have a blog you think I might like, why not send me a link?
Let’s be all sharing-y and cute.
