Every day may be a new day, let's have deep clean breath primary, and be in very good mood and thank you a lot to your weblog I seriously loved studying this posting.

Hi Chris,

I got the same email from the same person last night (before I found your post). Does that mean it is SPAM or just a template he uses for the few blogs he feels he has a good fit with?

Boarderline things like this do not bother me. If he does not link back, I will feel duped, but no real harm done.

The one comment that he should have linked first is very valid. If he likes our blogs so much, he should have linked to them and then sent an email later saying... I added you to my blog role a few months ago...

You are right about the click. I did that on purpose. I wanted to wait and see the consensus on the Spam issue.

You all make great points. I guess what I was considering was the idea that this was a one shot deal. I get this email and that's the end of it.

In the previous example, I get an email every time Mr. Wonderful posts.


You didn't actually provide a clickable link to his blog. I'm not sure if you did that on purpose, but now it's not only debatable as to whether or not that email is spam, but also as to whether or not you linked to him at all. By not making the link clickable, search engines like Google won't be able find his site through yours and it won't affect his pagerank, indexing etc. (See SEO) (Although how much value search engines put on links in OTHER blogs is debatable anyway.)
