Dear Blogger Editors -- You've Got To Be Kidding

Mrs. Linklater took the time to go deep into her Next Blog links, just to show how STUPID the Blogger people are. 
     As a reminder, here's what has happened to the Next Blog links:
     We've made the Next Blog link more useful, by taking you to a blog that you might like. The new and improved Next Blog link will now take you to a blog with similar content, in a language that you understand. If you are reading a Spanish blog about food, the Next Blog link will likely take you to another blog about food. In Spanish!
     Like I said, apparently Blogger thinks my blog is about cancer and rare diseases, death and dying.  Here is a list of the types of blogs that came up when I clicked on Next Blog:


Cancer
A baby with a bad heart who died
Somebody with Lyme disease
A premie's blog
A doctor's blog
A nurse's blog
A kid allergic to peanuts
Some woman on an orthognathic adventure
A doc
A beauty queen with arthritis
Breast cancer
Ovarian cancer
Cancer
Died of cancer
Neuroblastoma
Lung Cancer
Cancer
Colon cancer
Guy who died of cancer
Cancer
Cancer
Diabetes
A photography blog -- how did that get in there?
Flu
Disease research and information
Casts
A family blog -- no one dying or dead or anything, just a family blog, obviously a mistake
Rosacea
Polish photography blog -- a really good one with butterflies, flowers and no mention of cancer
Photo blog, not as good as the Polish blog
A repeat of one of the earlier cancer blogs
Doctor's cancer blog
Lymphoma
Cancer
Leukemia kid
Another repeat of a cancer blog
Lymphoma. . .
     Seriously, this sucks.

You might want to reconsider the nurse blogs. A couple of the funniest blots I read are done by nurses. R rated at times, but hilarious.
Try "Life according to Candice". R-rated, but funny.

But the nurse blog I linked to was about NURSING and illness and death stuff. No thanks.

I tried another trip through Next-blog-land. Still food blogs and mommy blogs. How on earth did they come up with that?

It's called data mining. It explains how your blog got linked to icky stuff and mine got linked to Lithuanian pudding recipes.

Go figure.
