In sum up - I do my best - and carry on improving my site and making it attractive to the people the want to do business with me. In nature as everything - interconnectivity goes further than a simple link and is part of what the net is about - or maybe Im naive and there's more at stake. So - Thats my rave - its off my chest - whats your thoughts guys I'd be interested.
Keep well and happy.

[edit reason] no solicitations, please. [/edit]
Once in a while a useful request will appear, but it often means wading through a heap of junk emails first. Reciprocal linking is often a poor use of time. The rest of the net doesn't owe new webmasters any recognition, and that's something to bear in mind when you contact other webmasters. You may not have a high traffic website yet, but consider what else you may have to offer in exchange for a link.
This is one reason that some people are happy to write articles for other sites, in exchange for a linked byline. Do a few of those and you, too, could enjoy the ego-boost that comes from deleting piles of unwanted link requests.
While it seems there are many here who say they just delete all requests, IMO they are the minority. Of course this all depends on the niche/catagory of your business.
There are a multitude of sites out there that will link to you. You have to do a little homework and discover which sites that are relevant to you are linking. Start there.

that have content I like
That little comment points to two make-or-break issues:
(1) the quality of your site, and
(2) the quality of your targeting.
Fail in one, and you fail, period.
Quality is the only thing that can rise above the clutter in our inboxes. And even that's not guaranteed.
Most are the same, So I just stopped answering them (I used to give advice to people but its not worth the effort)
I still look for link partners for my sites that are at the top of search engines...
