Today I decided that my blog needed an "About" section, as well as a section that lists the blogs that I most often visit. I've noticed that every blog I'm on has these sections. I know that I personally always click on the "About" page of other blogs, because I like to know a little bit more about the writer behind the posts - it's interesting! I also think that having a page where you list the blogs that you read is a good way to build rapport and network with others in the blogging community.
That being said, most of the blogs I read are by BIG bloggers. If you read any health or fitness blogs, you've probably come across the blogs that I have listed. The baby blogs (because I'm obsessed with babies!) are all listed as the top baby blogs on the internet. I comment occasionally when I read some of these blogger's posts, but more often than not I just read the day's musings, and move on. Most of these people have no clue who I am, or what my blog is. So that brings me to my point - am I supposed to let these bloggers know that I'm listing their blog on my site as part of a "Blog Love" or "Blog Roll" section? I read their blogs daily because I really like them, and want others to be able to enjoy them as well! I just wonder how this works. What is proper etiquette? I see the traffic that my blog gets, and it's way more than just friends and family reading it. So, if you're a blogger - can you help a sista out? Wouldn't want to make a gaffe (yeah senior year vocab quiz, coming in handy!) and do the wrong thing here.
