Don’t mind the photos… I just don’t know what to use for this subject ^^;. Do you review Gundam models on your blog? Are you on my blogroll? How about maybe a little more traffic to you? If you answered “yes” to any one of the aforementioned then I have a little something for you.
From now on till whenever this blog dies, I’ll be periodically updating my reviews with links to your reviews (after the “VERDICT” section) of the same model (i.e a link to your MG Sword Impulse in my MG Sword Impulse review). This applies to ALL MY REVIEWS- current and future. The linking will be an ongoing process (whenever I go blog-hopping) and I’ll leave you a little note on your blog if I am going to link to your review in mine so you’ll know as well. I’ll grab any reviews from your blog that I like when I come across it; I don’t care if the model is painted/modded or straight build, as long as it is a “review” in the common meaning that we all know. You don’t have to reply or do anything but if for whatever reason you don’t want me to link to your page, then just let me know and I’ll take it down ^^;. . You do not have to do anything for me in return to get your links posted in my reviews.
In a nutshell, I hope this will help further connect fellow gunpla/Gundam bloggers together better than a blogroll/banner exchange can. Even if just by a bit. Isn’t it great to be able to share your passion and hobby with others? :D
For the readers, this means one can jump to different perspectives on the same Gundam model all in one spot without the need to hop to another blog’s main page, look for the review (if available), and read. This might save only a click or two but I think it is more convenient at least . At the very least, you’ll know for sure who else have reviewed it. This should also help in making comparisons of opinions faster when one is debating on whether to pick up a particular model or not. Also, some newer readers might discover other blogs that they’ve never ventured into before. Simply said, this move should allow one to see more easier.
For the bloggers, hopefully this might help direct a bit of traffic to their sites. There are many out there who build awesome-looking models and write very informative reviews so I think they definitely deserves to be checked out! While this blog is not particularly big by any stretch of the imagination, I’ll still do what I can to spread the words ^^;.
CLEANING UP MY BLOGROLL
My blogroll needs updating… many inactive blogs and dead links here and there. So as I am hopping around, I’ll also be removing the links to blogs that haven’t been updated in the last four months (with exceptions) or blogs that are completely void of any readable contents (nothing to see… at all). No hard feelings. If I removed yours, you can simply request for me to add you back in (if you’ve resume updating). Not too evil of me right?
If you want me to do a link exchange, then just drop me a line. If you want to include a banner for your link (size 215×28 exactly), then just gimme a link to it as well ^^.
Lastly, please do not send me request to put your links in the reviews; I’m sure I’ll come across yours eventually. I’ll begin my review hunting starting this weekend (I already know who to jump to for reviews… heh) or sooner if I have time.
