I do not put web links on my blog for two simple reasons.
1. I don't want to monitor the links to make sure they are still active
2. Since this is my blog, I feel like I should be able to present my blog how I want it presented and not how other people want me to present it.
If I use your pattern I do give your name, a web search with your name will find all your links. To me that is sufficient and the most current way.
I hope I have not offended anyone, if I have I am sorry, but this is my Fish Bowl of Tatting.
