One of my blog posts about the garbage situation in my home city has been linked in the blog entries section of the online version of the Chicago Sun Times. It’s not that big a deal, hardly a ripple among the major waves in the ocean. But it still seems a bit cool to me.
The only way I could find out was because of Feedjit – that widget on the sidebar that lets me know from where and how people find my blog. Or how servers find my blogs actually. Anyways, I saw that someone or a server from a city/town in Illinois had visited me through the Sun Times website. When I took a closer look to investigate as to how my blog is linked there, I saw the post shown over there. They have my little gravatar dude, that I used to represent me online, and they have linked to my website along with a disclaimer that appears above and below the blog post that reads:
“The views expressed in these blog posts are those of the author and not of the Chicago Sun-Times.”
Take a look. Like I said, it’s not a big deal but I’m feeling pretty darn good about it. I hope this brings me more new readers.
