Why you should link to @joycloete

without comments

I do not have too many friends who are involved in teh interweb business. And even those who do have blogs prefer to keep it private. So private that I have to be logged in with my super-dooper-secret Gmail address to read it.

So sometimes I have a problem: I want to talk about them. I want to mention something crazy that they said, or some innovation or I just want to boast about them for no reason at all. But I can’t link to them because I do not want to expose their super-dooper-secret identities. And I like linking, especially to friends: it makes me feel good.

Well, it was a problem until this morning when I was walking to work.  I walked up the stairs at Woodstock station and it hit me: link to their page on Twitter. Twitter pages are becoming the new blogs (if Twitter gets through the economic crunch) and have page rank.

I know, amazing, hey? And I only heard of this last month or so, while The Blog Herald had an article on Twitter page rank last year already. My Twitter page has no page rank yet but not to worry. I’m sure it’ll pick up soon(ish); I’ve only been using it since September.

So if you don’t want to send linkjuice to my blog, at least consider sending some to my Twitter page.
