Next Blog button

If you want to surf random blogs quickly, one way is to click on the "Next Blog" button on the top of a blog page hosted by Blogspot. I use it now and then to see what's new in the random blogosphere. Almost all of the blogs reached through the "Next Blog" button are Blogspot blogs, but there have been rare occasions when the URL of the blog doesn't end in It makes me wonder, are they really hosted on Blogspot (or redirected from a Blogspot blog), and if not, how does the "Next Blog" button select blogs to navigate to?

Amazing Illusion

It's been a while since I stumbled upon a new blog that made me stay and read it for a while. That's why I was glad to find Amazing Illusion, a blog of optical illusions. Some are puzzling and some are just plain cool to look at. I spent a good two minutes looking at the illusion posted on Sep 18 before I could figure it out.

Anime blogs

Here are a few of the better anime blogs that I ran into recently. By better, I mean the blogs are updated consistently, the content is better than average, and the look and feel isn't too cluttered or confusing. I used to be a fan of anime, but I just don't have time to devote to it anymore. Sigh...

Keeping in touch through blogs

This post isn't to highlight a blog but to say that thanks to blogs, I've gotten in touch with some old friends from high school. A high school friend who just started blogging on LiveJournal suggested that I join and blog there as well. With LJ's networking features, we could link our blogs as friends. We're slowly starting to reach others through our networks, and hopefully one day, knowing what my old friends are up to will be as easy as going to my LJ friends page.

Site Swap

Site Swap is an original way to get some free publicity for your website. The idea is that after visiting two sites posted on Site Swap, you can submit your site so that future Site Swap readers will visit your site. How does Site Swap know you've visited the two sites it posted? By answering a simple question about each site. Go ahead, try it out. It's free, so what have you got to lose?
