Linking and targeting
I can fully understand why people do it---because of pop-up ads and the blocking thereof---but the lack of a default or 'switchable' target for links from blogs to other blogs or sites is really annoying. When I want to follow a link from someone's blog I have to right mouse click and 'open in new window'.
Whenever I create a blogpost I have to manually edit the html to append the requisite target="_blank" code to each link. Time consuming and error-prone.
But if I don't do it then I run the very real risk of someone following a link from my blog and disappearing from view for ever. Not a desired outcome for me.
Does anyone else have a solution to the targeting conundrum?
