If you click on “next blog” at the top of this page, you land on a random blog. It could be about anything: families, music, travels, all pics and no text, all text and no pics. And it could be in any language, some recognizable, some not. Because I have small children, my computer time is limited, but I could spend hours just…blogsurfing! They are plain and creative, funny and sad, relatable and totally “out there.” I’m fascinated by people’s desire to share themselves with the world. Some people post pics, but blur the faces, other use initials or “blog names” for the folks they write about. Somewhere I read that a blogger received pics (in her comments?) of her own kids playing in her yard. That’s pretty scary and makes you understand why people want to hide their identity (but still want to share their experiences). I guess there are risks associated with anything that involves other people. So far I’ve gotten nice comments and have used my blog to show co-workers pictures of my girls when I didn’t have an actual photo on me. There is a lot to be learned by blogsurfing. Go ahead, click and see where you land!

When I first started blogging, clicking on that "next blog" link was how I found a few that I still read. And how I figured out what kind of blog design I wanted (or didn't want for that matter!). So...I have to did you find me?!

I refuse to admit how often I have done that.;-)
