Weekend Open Track-Back

This is my weekend open track-back post for November 9th-11th.

Blatantly stolen from Linkfest Haven Deluxe:

When you set up a linkfest on your blog, its a lot of hard work, no doubt about it. However, there are several benefits.
Benefits to Hosts:
1) Visitors to your Blog
2) Links from those linking in
3) Readership for Your Spiels
This last deserves some comment. Over at
Third World County, David makes a short commentary before getting to the post. I do this on occasion. I’ve done presidential campaign polls, I’ve had links to my book. You’ve got people at your website, so take advantage of it if you’re a host.
It’s also time consuming for posters to link to Linkfests, but they also get benefits out of this.
1) Exposure
2) Links to their work
3) Hits
The best benefit is that some people take a look at a linkfest, look around a little bit, like what they see and before you know it, you’ve got a regular reader on your hands. This happens to both hosts and guests. I credit linkfests with helping me increase the number of hits and comments I get on my blog.
If you’re new to blogging, linkfests are definitely for you. They’re a way for good bloggers to get ahead and promote their work. In addition, linkfests CAN increase your Technorati and Truth Laid Bear Ecosystem rankings. However, that’s not the primary benefit. The benefit is being read and becoming part of the blogging community.

  1. Taco Bell Fun

    I stopped by Taco Bell on my way home from work a little while ago. My wife wanted me to pick up some of the taquitos for her. I placed my order saying, “I’d like two orders of beef taquitos.” The unknown individual manning the drive-…

  2. Veterans’ Day Double Feature: “Reveille” and “American Soldiers ROCK!”

    I first saw this video online several months ago and found it quite moving. From what I hear it may be made into a full length motion picture. I was reminded of this video due to Linkfest Haven having it on its website in honor of Veterans’ Day. I al…

  3. Joe Lieberman is Right

    I heard part of and read the rest of a speech given by Joe Lieberman that hit the proverbial nail on the head in terms of how the political divisions in this country are creating a virtual civil war. I haven’t seen or heard much about this important …

  4. Fort Bend GOP Crack-Up

    Among the many reasons that I hate Ron Paul’s presidential candidacy is the fact that it has resulted in the demise of Fort Bend County’s only significant GOP political blog, Texas Safety Forum as its owner works for the Paul…

  5. SM Sat: Dems Retreat From Retreat And Defeat

    The Surrender Monkey is sad. He wishes that he was available for Saturday work. Unfortunately, he is out of town at the A.N.S.W.E.R. International Socialism Conference. He was upset that he had to miss the Jena 6 rally, but, even he thought it was stup…

  6. Liberal Torture Logic: Partial Birth Abortion(NO) vs Waterboarding Terrorists(YES)

    I bring this up because of Rosa Brooks’ LA Times column, “Torture: the new abortion.” (via NewsBusters)
    Partial Birth Abortion
    1. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s leg with forceps.
    2. The baby’s leg i…

  7. Saluting all Veterans

    Being a veteran means a lot to me, even though I regard my personal military service as being so mundane as to almost be unworthy of inclusion with so many brave and wonderful men and women who served, and often died in their country’s service.  Y…

  8. Does Clinton Case Rule Out Impeachment, Removal Of Judge Samuel Kent?

    The actions of US District Court Judge Samuel Kent towards a female court employee are, to say the least, outrageous. I’d go so far as to say they are criminal. is it grounds for impeachment? The federal court employee at…

  9. NY Times Goes Stark Raving Bonkers!

    Between their lead editorial and Frank Rich’s commentary, it is clear that their Bush Derangement Syndrome has metastasized. It’s a pity that there is no option for euthanizing the once-great Grey Lady. I mean, they shoot horses, don’t they? Let’s…

  10. The IOWA GOP Limits

    Three GOP Candidates excluded from the Iowa GOP debate…Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-SC) gets $3 million for the James E. Clyburn school of golf…Former Illinois Governor goes to jail…Hillary’s campaign plants questions and s…

  11. More Football Than You Can Shake A Stick At — November 10, 2007

    Let’s start with the shocker of the day for me. Mississippi State BEAT Alabama by a score of 17-12. ‘Bama was ranked #22 and was expected to win this game handily. In the past the Bulldogs usually had one upset win a season and I thought they used …

  12. New Orleans Saints vs. St. Louis Rams

    The Saints have been teasing its fans I guess with its better play the past couple of weeks. However they reverted to the team that started the season 0-4 by getting embarrassed by the Rams via final score of 37-29.

  13. PhotoHunt 83: Flexible

    The latest PhotoHunt category from tnchick.com is “Flexible” which can be interpreted as one sees fit. This is a photo I took last month of a parsley plant I had in my yard that became infested with parsley caterpillars which we hoped would turn in…

  14. Thank You Veterans!

    “The World According To Carl” wishes to thank all United States veterans for doing what it takes to protect the freedoms we U.S. citizens enjoy. I salute all of you and greatly appreciate what you are doing and have done in service to our great nat…

  15. Veterans Day 2007

    A couple of weeks ago my mother had a get together with my father’s side of the family. We haven’t seen them so much over recent years primarily because all but one of the brothers are gone. They all died within a few short years and the glue that he…

  16. Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Plants Question in Q&A – Updated: They did it again

    Being a natural cynic, I find this more amusing then angering, particularly since i have long suspected candidates of all stripes of doing this at least on occasion.
    But no, I was sagely assured by more experienced political watchers, th…

  17. A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens

    A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost Story of Christmas was first published in 1843. The story met with instant success, selling six thousand copies within a week. Originally written as a potboiler to enable Dickens to pay off a debt, the tale h…
