Tom gets to the heart of the issue of A-listers, link trading, time-management, blogrolls and favorites in a manner that should be quite disheartening for those who have gotten too big for their britches. On the other hand, if you’ve ever reconsidered your decision to blog based on getting enough traffic this might perk you up a bit.
Tom’s point is that this whole conversation about assigning letter grades of importance and who is and who isn’t on a blogroll is kind of, well, silly. You know whether the content you’re putting out there is good or not. If it is, good for you. If not, work on improving it.
