Next Blog

So... there's one thing I've always wanted to know about blogger... that Next Blog link up there...   how do they figure out which blog is the next blog?  Because there really doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. 

I always push it.  I have, in my blog existence found maybe a dozen or so blogs of interest that way... but I keep pushing that button hoping that I'll stumble upon something interesting. 

Doesn't happen much. 

I have been subjected to more strangers baby pictures than I care to admit.  Another big subject is Scrapbooking.  Which is a craft I don't really understand the point of... They keep saying they want to create keepsakes for their kids, but I'm pretty sure that by the time the kid is 14 the last thing they're gonna wanna see is that damned scrapbook, but what do I know?  There's also lots of wedding pictures. 

Occasionally I'll run across a blog on gardening... but the last post was 2 years ago. 

On one occassion I was subjected to a woman in thigh high leather boots, wielding a whip.  Not the most attractive creature, the only reason it was notable being the utterly dissinterested and bored expression on her face.  Really, she looked like she was mentally composing her grocery list... maybe wondering if she'd have time to stop by the store on the way home after this idiot schmuck took his blasted pic. 

So, my point is... you'd think they'd at least be able to do some sort of  subject matching on the "next blog" button.  Maybe they're trying.  Don't know. 


  1. I've never bothered with the next blog button, but out of curiosity I just tried it. I got this: It's a gardening blog with a recent post. Go figure.

  2. interesting...I haven't touched it much, but each time I have, I seem to have mainly gardening blogs that show up! Gonna try again now...
