    Andrew making the title point dieltcry to the URL I’m linking was a deliberate decision. In fact, it took a little bit of extra PHP work to make it happen, as opposed to the WP default behavior of linking to the permalink of the entry . In the case of Links, when much less is written on this site, my expectation is to be taken off-site to the URL. Since this is the most common action, I didn’t want to require people to click through to a page on my site, then click another link to actually visit the other site. More rationale: the title is the title of what I’m linking to, not of my own commentary. Sometimes, I won’t add any commentary. Or certainly not enough that deserves as prominent of a link as the title.I guess I could insert a visit link’ link somewhere in the entry. But I actually think it’s more helpful if (for the links category) the title still points to the external site, and something else in my entry (currently the hash #) points to the page that hosts just that link. Maybe I could just make that hash link more obvious. I just modified my feeds last night to include this line at the end of every link entry:- archive link -Perhaps something similar here on the site.
