Titles on links: straightening up

A combination of my recent job interview and reading Coding Horror reminded me that I’ve been slack on putting title attributes on my links here on the blagonet. The interview because it touched on accessibility, and Coding Horror because Atwood crosslinks a lot of his posts, but doesn’t give the name of the post in the title tag, which means I end up with 30 open tabs to blog entries that I couldn’t cherry-pick thanks to non-semantic URIs and no titles. I also don’t know which of Atwood’s links are internal or external without checking the URIs. Kinda frustrating.

So I reactivated my External Links plugin (which puts that nice little icon next to external links) and am being non-lazy about titling links.

I feel better already. Hopefully that’ll make things a little easier to read around here.
