CJ Chivers writes about a type of writing for the web that I hope to firmly remain in the tradition of: link blogging.

It was respectful of your time, both as a reader and a creator. The pickier you were (the more respectful you were), the better the links. You built trust and authority as the editor of your tiny corner of the web.

It was a pretty great system.

Occasionally, you’d have something significant to add to the conversation, so you’d post an essay or a new work you created. That got linked to by the community on their sites if it was any good.
