Blog button whine

Why do people think I want to post a button of their blog on MY blog?  I'm not talking about this blog, I'm talking about personal blogs, by individual people?  Do you think I love you and your blog so much, that I think you're so amazing, and that I feel so proud to be one of your readers that I want to shout it out to the world by posting your button on my blog?  Or is there some unwritten you-post-my-button,-I'll-post-yours rule?  If so, it makes no difference.  Because I don't have a button.  I don't want a button.  I'm not trying to create some kind of enterprise here, it's a blog, man.  Give me a break.

I hear you on this. I don't like to put up stuff on my blog and not just because it takes me half the day to figure out how to do it.

I think some people are really into that whole button thing.

I try to limit the amount of web parts I add to my blog, because it makes the page load take so long. There are a couple of blogs I'm thinking about abandoning, even though I enjoy them, because they're a 60-second page load. Yeesh!

Maybe I'm in the minority but I have one of my friend's buttons on my blog. I love it and I love her blog.

If you don't want the button then don't take the button.

There you go - problem solved.
