Well, today was a bad day...
Checked my email this morning and I got like 10 rejections from the last two days. Everything from people telling me that they abandoned their site, or their webmaster died and they don't know how to update their site themselves. There was a "thanks for reminding me I need to take that site down anyway."
One woman literally wrote a ten paragraph response about how that web site used to represent a significant part of her dreams for the future and how her life has changed and what her new dreams are and yadda yadda yadda... Really, it would have just been more compassionate of her to just tell me to go take a hike.
Then, to top it off, there were a couple of "your site really isn't good enough for me to link to."
I was about to write a long email back saying how wikipedia, university of Michigan and Emory university all thought it was good enough to link to, but decided that discretion was the better part of valor in this instance.
Besides, I've got like three thousand other sites I am trying to get links from, so it's not like I don't have anywhere else to look for links.
