"Next Blog"

Has anyone every tried that button at the top of the right hand of your screen? I was a little bored at work today and tired of billing so I decided to play with blogger for a while and see what I could find. There are some crazy blogs out there. I thought my blog was whack. I've seen blogs that have:

1. Naked pictures of the bloggers themselves online (thank God I have my own office!)

2. A blog that told me why Global warming will eliminate man kind as we know it

3. A blog on how to obtain a free i-pod

4. A blog on stock market tips (why would you post this? If I knew when to sell and when to buy it would be my dirty little secret)

5. A number of foreign blogs

6. Blogs about people's family pictures including the drunk uncle that apparently every family has.

7. A blog telling me that the latest Star Wars movie comes out on DVD on November 1st in ALL CAPS with lots of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and last but not least

8. A blog about a crazy ass Rican lawyer from the great white north...that's right folks, I hit the "next blog" button and actually landed on my own blog.

Crazy huh? I wonder how many people found my blog like that, or when they came upon my blog what they thought (besides wow what a dork). Anyone else done this and found some interesting stuff?

You know, just because they aren't standing in your office doesn't mean that don't know you're looking at naked people on your computer.

Excellent point, Moral T.

Rican, I found your blog by clicking on "next blog".

There are a lot of foreign blogs, particularly in spanish and chinese (or I just happen to get them).

One guy is writing a serialization of Batman and Robin in the "early days".

My favorite is one dedicated to why a guy hates DC. I love DC, but it's interesting that this man would spend SO much time discussing it instead of just moving (it would be less effort).

I've experienced this once, and I know The Quintessential Negro has experienced it several times: if you check your sitemeter referrals, every once in a while you'll see a list of 20 or so referrals all from different sites that hit you in the span of a few minutes. TQN and I figure that blogspot must have some sort of method for making certain blogs in the short list of "next blogs" for everyone for a few minutes. Maybe yesterday was your turn.
