Next Blog, Please

You see up there at the top of the the very, tippy-top....where it says "next blog" with two arrows?

I don't know who uses this button, and I haven't done it for YEARS, but today I decided to keep paging forward to see what I came across.

You know what I found?


I had intended to link to some really cool blogs that I thought I'd be coming across as a result of my devil-may-care clicking.  

I'm sure there are clickers who breeze right by me - Wait!  Stop!!  Come back! - and that's fine.  Can't be everyone's cup of tea.  In the course of my clicking, I found blogs that hadn't been updated (for years!), a disturbing number of religious blogs, a gluten-free cyclist, mommy and daddy blogs with pictures of kids sleeping, eating and I think one who was throwing up.  It was really a disastrous random blog-finding journey.

But then I found this one:

Vito, of Bill's Magical Mystery Tour.  I don't quite get the name, but he rides his bike in the snow!  A bike that has handlebar gloves - or whatever they're called.  Can I love him more??

He apparently rides a LOT - year round - and he's got some pretty amazing pictures of his travels.  He even has one of a really damn big deer.    I'm certainly not at his level of bike riding - mountain trails, lakeside sojourns, snow - but it's inspiring and really makes me look forward to the spring.

I thought that it would bring me to blogs that I visit. Was disappointed when it didn't. Glad you found something good.

Authority Sites said...

I've attempted a number of other companies away only to appear to be I've been cheated and really should have just kept my personal cash. Not really the problem along with Authority Sites, He is not the pushy salesperson whatsoever and more importantly under ensures and over functions each time and at a very reasonable rate.

I only use these arrows when I find a cool blog and would like to know what else was going on there. So I click through posts on the same blog. Never for different blogs though. To say the truth, I was sure most of the blogs would be essay writer services or something since there are so many of ads around.
Thanks for Bill's blog!
