Links



Links are king. I never really noticed or cared about my links before. Obviously everyone knows links are what give you google power and we all dig power. Every once in a while I visit technorati to see how my linking power is doing. Technorati is a site that tracks how many links you have. My blog now has 83 blogs linked to it. I'm not sure of the difference between having regular links and links from blogs. Maybe someone can explain that to me but links from blogs seem to be where it's at. The problem I have is that people used to link to my tommykane.com site. There I have about 25 links from blogs. Too bad I can't carry them over to my blog. Anyway I would love to get over the hundred mark. At one point when I hovered around fifty, I made an effort to write to people for some link exchanges. That went very well I must say. My friend Danny Gregory has like 350 links from blogs. He rules. If anyone would like to help out and link my blog, that would be excellent.

Your "link" owl is superb, those eyes really draw you in. How much time do you usually spend on one of these moleskine sketches? I would think that it could take awhile, but I'll bet that you whip these out in a matter of moments, dont'cha?

and you've been linked, of course.

I always wonder about those bloggers who have loads of comments after their posts and how they get people to leave them. I tend to leave comments so that the blogger will know who stopped by for a visit. But I don't have any links posted on my blog at all. I didn't think it mattered but looks like it does so you'll be my first link as soon as I can figure out how to code it in! ~SH

I understand your link obsession. I suffer from the same problem. Want to trade links?
(Beautiful illustrations today, btw...as always!)

Tommy Kane said...

Thanks for all your help. Every link matters. The moleskine drawings take me about 50 minutes to do. I race as fast as I can. Everyone who has already linked me, I thank all of you again.

Ana Banana said...

I'm going to link you 17 more times, Tommy!

Your owl is FABUowlous!

LOVE it!

I like the woman posing with deer, too. although she appears to be on drugs or something. Maybe too much bong...yes, I think that is it. She seems to becoming one with deer and, also, hallucinating I think. You see, cause sonny bono is dead for sure. He slid into tree, remember?

Tommy Kane said...

You're right. the ever elusive tree.

Bill Z said...

I've been meaning to anyway - love your stuff

I really like the colored pencil effect - beautiful!

As far as I know, Technorati only counts links from blogs. But I'm no expert. BTW, I mentioned (and linked to) you in a post a few days ago. You're also on my link list, of course.

I thought I was the only one who watched Lanelot Link, Secret Chimp - that was one weird show!

Dear Tommy,

I'm on 83, too.

Which is as good a reason as any to link to you.

Bill said...

Tommy,

Your a hero of mine. I linked to you long ago and have mentioned you in a couple of comments on other blogs as well.

regards,

Bill

Tommy Kane said...

I want to thank all of you for your kindness. I notice everything you are all up to.

spacedlaw said...

I have your blog linked on mine, if that's any comfort (had it for about a month now since I find it the easiest way to get here).

Nice owl, by the way.

ksklein said...

I linked you to my blog as soon as I discovered your great art.

Tommy Kane said...

I've picked up a lot more links, thanks to all of you.

RobinSlick said...

You are linked though I can't help but think "I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!"

Tommy Kane said...

Robin you are very worthy. I checked out your blog.

Robyn said...

I've lurked on your blog for ages. I'm so pleased Judi tagged you, I'm going to link to you. It could put you over the ton!

m.b said...

Tommy, you're so cool - I gave you two. I've got links to your illustration site and your blog. You reminded me to add Danny in there too! The two of you guys are such a great inspiration - thanks so much!
