OK, now that I learned how to easily post a reciprocal link not from the homepage I will try to continue reviewing blog directories more often.
To tell you the truth, I was a bit hesitant to continue reviewing directories once my homepage got PR3. The reason is because I didn't wan to link to directories from a PR3 page and get a reciprocal link from a PR0 page.

Anyway, let's review (click on "read more" at the bottom of this post to see their button)

I was surprised to see that it will take them 30 business days to review and approve my blog! Obviously in the meantime they get a one month link to their directory from my blog for free. I also wonder how many people submit their blog and forget to check one month later if their blog was added to bloghints or not... I will check it and update this post in 30 days. This is what they write:
"A reciprocal link is required to your blog's homepage is required. Submissions without a reciprocal link will be rejected.
Reciprocal Blogs will be approved within 30 business days"

Also, it says that my link will be live for 1 year only... after that I'll have to resubmit. You should take that into consideration if you are thinking to submit your blog on bloghints.

it looks like it's going to take me more time than what I thought... there is an error message on bloghints and I can't submit my blog... here is the message I get:
Warning: Smarty error: validate: validator id 'v_LINK_TYPE' is not registered. in /home/bloghint/public_html/libs/smarty/Smarty.class.php on line 1095

I will write them and notify them of the mistake... we'll see what they say.

Recommendation: Good

this is what bloghints will ask you to put on your blog once you submit to their directory:
Blog Directory
