After I released my post “Google Wave is not about text, it’s about data”, my friend Rafael Lima twitted praising it (in portuguese): Gosto de post que clico em vários links para ler mais como este”. Which means “I like posts with lots of links to read more about, like this”.
It’s very important to have the habit of spend some time finding the right links to reference in a blog post. Links are extremely powerful! It can turn a post into a knowledge hub.
Adding much relevant links as possible to your posts, not only add value to your text but gives credibility to it. It works just like bibliography in books.
