TO REVISE MY THINKING ON THIS TOPIC
Links already on this site are mainly short-cuts to additional information
about a specific topic. These URLs direct visitors to where a topic
is expanded for fully. This saves duplication of information already
available, usually on more specialised sites.
DIRECTORY OF LINKS: Absence of a comprehensive list permanently in view
annoys some H-C site visitors. But, placing appropriate links on a specific
TOPICS page (e.g.. one dedicated to chastity, rope, pvc or gags) is
more convenient for people who are in the process of exploring that
particular topic. However, a LINKS DIRECTORY will become necessary as
the number of links on-site grows. But, I think, this list will need
to be separated into topics rather than alphabetical.
CONTACT WITH THE OWNERS of all linked sites is something I would like
to develop. Building this new 'directory' will encourage me to do this
- gradually. It will take some time to finalise the list ... and I do
not want to offend any Site Owner by not including them - BUT - information
and opinion will be the name-of-the-game when deciding which sites to
include and which not. Pay-to-enter sites and the general run of vendors
will only be appropriate if those sites are sources of ideas and/or
specialised equipment. As the list develops, policy on this may change.
OF LINKS: The current policy of placing links not only on 'topic' sites
but also AT THE END of a page, is to avoid the temptation of readers
cutting away to URLs in the middle of reading a text. Putting URLs at
the end of topic-specific pages will continue ... except when cut-aways
to additional material within a story or non-fiction, offers a 'footnote'
as in a book. In those cases, advice to always used the BACK button
to return to the main text will be included.
LINKS UP-TO-DATE (especially personal blogs) can be very time consuming
- so Owners of linked sites will be encouraged to keep me posted of
There are a few direct links to other people's sites on individual pages.
(ADD TEMPORARY LIST OF THESE?)
reciprocal links would be appreciated - because this will increase traffic
to Houdini Connections.
In some cases, I have not yet requested links from several people I
already mention on site.
good friends are currently advising on adding more links to my site
- for which I'm always grateful.
technology of 'banners' still defeats me. I may work on this - but discuss
whether to stick with single-line text-link list only.
more efficient SEARCH ENGINE and a better SITE MAT are needed on this
site - and help with this is still being sought. I'm open to offers!
suggestions from site visitors for additional appropriate links to personal
blogs and other informational sites - warnings if any link on this site
is NOT WORKING are always appreciated.
