I don't mind when new bloggers contact me and ask me to promote their blogs now and then, just to get a few readers to come over and help them get established, especially if they're serious about blogging and decide to stick around a while. I've lost count how many bloggers have come and gone in the almost-five years I've been blogging. Most of those who were blogging when I first began on another server fell by the wayside a long time ago and that blog service is a virtual ghost town now. But I've had one person lately who comes across too pushy for my taste and after thinking about it for a few days, I took my link to her site off my blog. I appreciate the fact she's trying to drum up traffic but it's the way she's gone about it that puts me off. Asking me to 'write' about her and her projects with links...no, that's not the way I function. She did one thing recently that really turned me off and when I weighed what she'd done in the balances, I found myself deleting her. Am I cold-blooded? Have any of the rest of you had this problem? How have you dealt with it?
