Links are DANGEROUS!!!!

I think I am learning to NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, FOLLOW A LINK FROM A BLOG THAT I LIKE.

Here's the scenario:

I am happily reading along in some blog or other that I enjoy, and they have a link to a previous post (usually to explain some obscure reference they have made). Then, in THAT post, there is a link to someone else's blog. I click, like a fool. I like the new blog....read a few posts....find another link.

Now, at this point, I am a blog away and still haven't finished the first post. The wise thing to do would be to bookmark and go back to finish what I started.

I am not wise.

The next thing I know, I am lost somewhere out in cyber-space with no idea how I got there and no memory of where I started. In my brilliance, I haven't even bookmarked all the fabulous blogs that I visited along the way! Unless I want to use the "Back" button to excess, I have lost all the wonderful things I have found on my journey.

So my solution is to NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, FOLLOW LINKS.

Do you think I can do it?

*snort* My sis was talking about the same sort of problem with YouTube. She said that you start by watching one subject and with 3 clicks you're on the other side of the subject "planet" watching a video for something completely unrelated to what you started with, and you've wasted a half-hour in the process. *grin*

Good luck with the challenge of NOT losing those new links!

Naaah! That would take some of the fun out of blogland! I just follow the links and hope to find my way back again. Kinda like a game of Concentration.

Nope. Links are a devious seduction.

I am always worried about clicking on links of new people who comment on my blog!

Yeah - tha would totally take the fun out of things. It is fun to get lost.

Hmm... I like where the links lead. Usually it is to other places and faces I may be interested in.
