Just one thing to keep in mind;
Look at the site from which your want to receive a link. If a link to your site WOULD BENEFIT VISITORS TO THEIR SITE, then it is probably a link worth getting.
And, if it would truly benefit visitors to THEIR site to have a link to your page, then I am guessing that the owner of the site would be MORE willing to link to your page.
Look at their site and ask yourself, "Would a page on my site actually ADD VALUE to their site?"
If you don't have a page that would add value, but you really want a link form that site, then you should create a page that does add value.
Hope this helps.
