And so to day 2 and visiting a previously-unvisited blog. Easy this one and a nice outcome. Several of my commenters are new to me, so it was a pleasure to visit all of their blogs and to leave a couple of comments and they commented back and hey ho, off we go.
Now of course all of these bloggers are attached to our e-learning/blogging niche … that almost goes without saying. Another way to choose a random blog is to click on the facility on whatever blog platform you use. On my WordPress there is a hotlink to a hot random post; some of these are useful for this exercise, but you never know your luck. Try tag surfing as well … that can lead to some gold in areas related to your niche. I think Blogger lets you just click on the next or previous blog to your own.
So, lots of ways to browse the blogs out there and to leave a calling card when you do. A bit like viewing during an open-house; you never know which contacts will become meaningful in the future.
