Sheri at Two Nervous Dogs has some semi-constructive recommendations for Truth Laid Bear's Ecosystem. She attributes her own current success to accidental pron-linkage and "drunken blogging". Me, I think that's an improvement on, oh, say, residual traffic from a regrettable series of catfights.
I have to say that I already click through to my current ranking-level on the Ecosystem. At this point, I know who the cool kids are. It's more interesting to check out my pimply-outcast cohort of peers, y'know?
