You know folks, much of my corespondence is stuff along these lines:

Dear Walter,

I just put a link to you from my site. Might you consider a link from your site to mine?

Thanks,

(Your name here)

Gentle Reader,

First, tremonduos thanks for linkin to my Page. I just saw the link and it sure boosts my flailing selfesteem. Plus your site is desiged much bettor than my crappy page. (Then aggain, any site compared to mine is gonna look much less crappier).

About your reqeust for a reciprocatting link, Im deeply sorry but must decline. You see, my site is limmited by my acount to 1 MB which is quite generous but considoring i get dozens of similar reqeusts each month i feel its only fair to decline them all. I hope you undorstand. Once agian please know how apreciattive i am that you linked to me.

Sincearly,

Walter Miller

P.S. Please PLEASE dont take your link down becuase of this. I have a dificult time with rejection. My fraggile ego wont be able to bear it.


Well folks: All that is abbout to change!

(Uh, not the part abbout my poorselfimage and fear of rejection.)

But we WILL begin to have links added to these pages!

INTRODUCING:

The Site That Links to the WALTER MILLER HOME PAGE Site of the Day!

Now before you get all excited, please undorstand First:

This isnt a friggin link farm, and aint running the danm Webby Awords here: Your link will be ghetto-ized to its own section, and NOT placed on my actual homepage updates. But rest assured you WILL be close enough, indeed still within tobaco juice spitting disstance of granfathers airbourne sputum, expectorated projectiles of all viscossities, and the rest of the flying fecal circus weve all come to know and love on Walter Miller's Home Page.

Yes folks you too can now share in all the thuosands of the hits I suposedly receive from Web surfers around the world! (Dont blame ME if your hit counter goes way up an lots of pretty womon start writin to you!) The page of Sites That Links to the WALTER MILLER HOME PAGE Site of the Day will be updated and acessible right off my Main update page!
Randomly updated about once a month, The S.T.L.T.T.W.M.H.P. Site of the Day will include roughley 5 to 10 diferent links. (I guess its not really a true 'site of the day' site. I cant update the site every day, so only 5 or 10 sites in a given month will be chosen. Remember, I AM a fredulent exaggorator)

Now, I cant promise to link to you all. The limit will probly be 5 to 10 links a month. If your site is not chosen one month, TRY & APPLY AGAIN and perhaps youll be chosan the next month. When you are, if you wish, you can pick from eithor of these two remarkable and uniqquely crappy non-Graphicol text 'icons' for your cutting and pasting pleasure on your own site:

SUBMISSION AND SELECTION GIUDELINES CRITERIA

Ass-covering exclusivity statement:

II.

Submission Giudelines criteria:

III.

Selection Guidlines Criteria:

The below criteria are simply guidlines. In other words if one or more of the items below is includded on the site to be sumbited to The S.T.L.T.T.W.M.H.P. Site of the Day, it may posibly tilt the judges (me and Granfather) to sellecting your site as a winner.

The W.W.W. Virtual Self-Image Generater(tm)

Each sellected site will be assigned a numericol "Self-Image Relevency" factor, which is determined by how good the site meets the criteria above. For exaple, referencing W.M.H.P. in an academic setting might score a 65%, but the same which ALSO includes a particulorly quotable qoute might score a 75%. If you write for an online pubblication or e-zine, a full article or featuore (flatering or Unflattering) is an easy in for 95%-plus.

I apollogize in advance for this shameless exorcise in self promotion.

It is due somwhat for me wanting to advance a career and also for (eventual) monetary benefit on my part as an acomplished writer, authour, pundit and Web industry expert. I admit it. But mostly it is because I have a poor selfesteem problem and do have a conpulsive need for people to notice me, to talk about me, and to write abbout me. And mostly also to accept me and like me. I am a peoplle pleaser.

These are dificult, embarasing and hiumiliating things for me to admit, but dammit I AM ADMITTING THEM.

You know folks, people trade links all the time: "Say, bub, link to me, and I'll link to you." Everyone from Fourtune 10 companies to stupid kids like me with homepages trade links with one annother. And WHY do they do it? Becuase they too want to be takken seriousley and have allot of hits. And plus have there website wrote about.

Begging and trading links on the web has become a friggin plague. Perhaps my hero Carl Steadman said it best with: "The web is a potlatch economy, where links are the new currency. It's only fitting, then, that there's nothing worth buying."

OK Ive said enuogh.
