Swapped Links

Many webmasters trade links to each other's websites to increase their visibility. These are mostly traded links, plus a few I just find useful. I certainly don't endorse them all, but many of them are quite good, especially the ones in bold. I don't write most of the descriptions, so if a link has a "snake oil salesman" feel to it, be wary.
