I have just posted a poll over there in the left-hand margin. I’ve been curious about this for a while. You see, when I work on a post, I work really hard to find and include links to give you more information, to show you what I’m talking about, to point you towards other bloggers, or sometimes just to make you laugh.
But I have no idea if you click on them, or care.
And I want to know.
I have watched my sister (Hey! There’s one of those hotlinks now!) read blogs, and I know that she skims the cursor over the hotlink, looks at the target address that appears at the bottom of the screen, and then will decide to click or not. Do you do that?
Did you know that I set up all of my hotlinks so they open in separate windows? I wouldn’t want you walking away from me that easily, my pretties!
So, take the poll. I won’t be offended if I get 100% saying that you don’t click. And you lurkers out there? I know you’re out there, and I love ya for reading me regularly. Please vote. Even if you’ve never commented here, please vote.
