Bad Things in Blog World

Did anyone realize that if you click on "Next Blog" that you will randomly come to porn sites? I was pretty disgusted. I had read some AOL blogs and the same thing was there. I, of course, heard about all this, but when I saw it I was really grossed out. All the more reason to watch our children like hawks when they are online.

I've done that and found some really bad sites. I can't seem to get my mouse to click on the X in the corner fast enough! But I have found a couple of blogs that seemed interesting enough to read. Did you seem to get a lot in other languages too?

There are tons of foreign and porn sites on Blogger, but that is the price of freedom of speech. I don't even bother with the 'next blog' button anymore. I've never found anything interesting that way.

The only good way to find great blogs is to go to a blog you really like and click on their recommended links. That way you are sure (or reasonably sure) it's going to be decent.

I unwittingly discovered that too, Violetlady. And like, Lynne, couldn't get to the X in the corner quick enough!

I now stick with browsing through links I find on other readers' blogs like Kookie mentioned. It's safer that way.
