As I continue my random sojourn through the "next blog" button, I am increasingly aware of how few blogs really stand out. The majority are sincere. Many are well written. Some have spectacular photography. I ran into one blog today that had a short video clip of a whale watching trip. While the video was nothing great, I sensed the immediacy and awesomeness of the moment as a large pod of Orcas jumped out of the water. I really enjoyed seeing that. Some are just are so far removed from my culture that I do not relate at all to what the blogger is saying (i.e., the teenage blogs with all kids of chats and tags and abbreviations that read like a foreign language -- that's the generation gap, I guess). I come up many blogs soliciting comments.

I don't know how many blogs I have visited so far -- but there have been many. I always comment on the personal blogs. People have responded with comments to any one of my blogs (depending on how I signed my comment). The reponse has been warm, friendly and encouraging. I like that! I do not comment on blogs that I find offensive like the white supremisist blog I stumbled onto. I also have not commented on blogs written in foreign languages, but I think about doing that anyway. I do comment on international blogs that are written in English.

I have been thwarted in my blogging sojourn. I have been "next blogging" my way through blogs -- going for a handful at a time -- letting the bloggers know that I visited. However, there are many blogs that require a blogger id that I cannot access because they are not beta blogs. Blogger suggests this will be remediated in the future. Meanwhile, I just keep going.
