Rima – I find it disturbing that you always post a link to your own blog and not to the original site where an article or blog post appears. What is the reason that you do it that way?


  1. I read a lot during the course of any given day and I couldn’t possibly¬†remember where I saw an item, days later, when I write a comment. Months later, Google may or may not display it.
  2. Often times, I will find content that doesn’t get wide circulation, when I think it is important.
  3. I blog so others can read me.
  4. It is convenient. There are many times when I will combine sections from several items together in one post.
