@glengorham This shouldn’t be something to concern, the best way to do things is to actually be natural, link whenever you see a need to!
Anchor text links and adding titles to your links to both (external and internal) help search engines to know more about your content and rank it on the right spot, that’s why relevancy is the most important thing to look at, plus linking to authority sites of course.
But, one thing to pay attention too is to give your readers a good experience, so you don’t want to disturb them while reading with many links on the wrong place.
Personally, I like to do both external and internal links “a lot” because I think that post without links has no identity.
I also use useful and simple automated ways for internal linking such as “related posts”, and some other plugins and codes to help me add even more related links on sidebars in different ways.
