Inline Links?

I’ve stumbled across a few recent discussions, mostly on twitter, with people commenting that they don’t like inline links inside of blog posts. So I went and did some snooping, finding a couple blogs talking about it. Basically some people find the inline links distracting. Other people don’t have a problem with them.

What are your thoughts? Hate inline links? Love them? Don’t care?

I’m leaning towards keeping one or two inline links on the most relevant content — the stuff people would most logically want to click through to, say the actual book or story being discussed in the post — and any tangential mentions would be listed as links at the bottom of the page.
