Random Blogs

This has become a recent (almost) obsession (for lack of a better word) for me. Blogspot is a pretty big repository for blogs, or at least it's my understanding that it is. Regardless, every once in a while, I find myself clicking on the "Next Blog" link at the top of the few blogs I read on a regular basis. And it takes me to some random blog, half of them I can't read because they were written in some language other than English or by some person who feels that their comments are made more noteworthy by spelling things wrong or capitalizing every other letter in a word.

But it got me to thinking. How many people randomly hit upon MY blog? After all, I'm reading random people's blogs. How "random" is clicking on that next blog button.

So curiousity got the best of me, and I added a couple of webstats/counters to the blogs here. Any hits? HA! Just by me and Mike! So NO ONE has randomly happened upon my blog. Again, makes me wonder just how blogspot determines the next random blog.
