Excellent post! Thanks for the tips!

I am part of the ucomment I follow movement. I about went into a panic changing my code. I didn't know anything about refreshing links. Bottom line, you are smarter than me;)

Chelle Y.

All that information is way over my head! :)


I like Mr. Linky myself... it saves having to update the posts with new links all the time... :)

Thomma Lyn

Wow, thank you so much for your informative post, and I have bookmarked it so that I can make some changes!

Happy T13 to you!

Thanks for all the info! I am bookmarking this!

Well one of my weekly blog tidy up jobs is copying the links for my WW and TT posts into the page although because of a couple of spam attacks I don't advertise that I do and I do remove any blatant spam links from the list too. There was one poster who hit my TT and WW for a few weeks who changed the page they linked to from a TT/WW post after a couple of days to something entirely different.

Anyway, hopefully you'll encourage more people to share links this week :-)


Great info....thanks for sharing:) Happy TT.

Oh, how can I thank you guys enough? I've been trying to understand this stuff and even though the Tour Manager is a computer whiz, he doesn't get a lot of this blog stuff. So I need to understand it first. Now, I do.

I'll put him on it tomorrow; he's at poker tonight.

Thanks and have a great (and link-filled) TT!


I use Mr. Linky :-)


Bookmarking your site! I need a day to go through over this again:) Thanks for sharing! Very informative TT!


Seriously, this was the best T13 EVER. Excellent information. U Comment, I Follow.


I switched off my "no follow", but I didn't know there was a badge to display. Thanks for the tips!


This is a seriously excellent TT! I'm one of those little bloggers who need the link love, so I try to be sure to give it and this will really help!!!


Great TT and lots of good info how we can all help one another...and frankly, that's what blogging is all about! Meeting new people and helping each other along!
Terrific post!! Happy TT!


I've learned some great new tips today!
Thanks for sharing.

Happy TT!


Awesome 13. I will use all of them.

MY 13 is up on

Great TT. I came upon an aol blogger today and couldn't comment because I didn't have a user name and all of that - it's a bummer when you have to stop and subscribe to something you don't really want just to tell someone you liked their TT.


Well, they do say that you learn something new every day, and this post has just proved it for me! Thanks, and I'll give some serious thought to taking some of these up for next week's TT.


It all sounded wonderfully helpful, but sailed completely over my head. As a LiveJournal user it's so difficult to incorporate certain things that I've been left out of a great deal of link love.

I'll come back after some sleep and see how much more I can absorb before next weeks TT. :)



Excellent post. My nofollow thing has been fixed for a couple of months. I did a post on it too. Just an fyi on the permalinkies...that is not the free version of mr linkie. You must upgrade for that option.


Wow, I'm a complete dunce when it comes to all of this stuff, but I'm going to look into the "no follow" bit. I also might have to try Mr. Linky for it would save me the time of posting links myself. Good list! Mine is things I'd rather do instead of grade papers.


Wow! That's a lot of info. I'll have to go back and reread it when I'm home so I can make a couple of changes to my blog.

Thanks, and Happy TT!

I've been into the Do Follow movement for a while, though I didn't have the "official" badge.

I tried submitting to those directories, but the second one appears to have something wrong with the submit page -- just an FYI.

I've also been using for just a few months. It's a great way to be able to go back to something later, though I really haven't been able to figure out how to use the "community" there. Just two days ago I started trying to figure out Digg but I find it very difficult and confusing and hard to categorize things I find that I like on the web. I had tried StumbledUpon a long time ago but found it time consuming but from what I've been reading lately, it sounds like it's evolved, I might try it again.

I have to say that I completely agree about the TT blogroll. I've applied several times and not heard a peep about it and it seems like most of the links on it are dead or cold. I'd like to see it be useful. I'd love to be able to use it to find up-to-date TT blogs to read regularly and not just on Thursdays.


Those are great ideas. I am not too computer literate, so some of it was over my head. I have heard of some of the things you mention. It does bother me when I go to someones blog, and I have to jump through hoops to leave a comment, or I have to send it to my fake blog at blogger which tells people to go to my real blog at wordpress. Thanks for visiting my TT.
