An Incredibly Stupid Blog Game To Play

**Note, this blog post has little (if anything) to do with fishing.  Proceed with caution.**

I noticed last night that the "Next Blog>>" link reappeared up in the Nav Bar at the top of my blog.  If you don't know what I mean, this is what I'm talking about:

It used to be there, but for some reason disappeared not too long ago.  Anyway, it's back, which really isn't a big deal except for the fact that if so inclined, one can play a stupid game with it.

Here are the rules:

Basically click the Next Blog button, and once the next blog pops up, click it again.  Repeat this until you've done it 7 times.  It's kind of like Blogger Russian Roulette.

First off, if you can actually make it more than 2 or 3 in a row without hitting a "dead" blog, you're lucky.  There's a wasteland of abandoned blogs out there (like THIS one) that make this simple task difficult to perform.  But if you're successful, you'll notice that the first few clicks typically yield other blogs with similar themes (probably fishing), but somewhere along the line start going down a very divergent path.

I did it just before writing this post, these were the results...

1)  Bad Fish
Ok, fly fishing rod and a wet dog, off to a good start...

This one's been around since 2006 and is about fishing.  Still in the right direction...

Fishing, motorcycles, and heavy equipment, cool I guess...

F*ck, this blog is in Swedish.  It's some fishing team with a fondness for swear words... 

Crap, now I'm stuck on Swedish blogs...this is a photography one...there's some pics of a pretty ginger...

More Swedes...and like 2 year olds on trampolines...this blog sucks...we're totally off track now...

The last one, lucky number 7.  Still Swedish, and I have no idea what's going on.  Looks a little hipster-artsy to me, maybe they're a music act of some sort?  But if you scroll down there's some nightclub with chicks on trapeze and lots of tongues licking things, oh, and THIS...so its definitely got that going for it.  I'd think that it's depicting scenes much like the happenings at an IRON FLY event, except that there are actually females in these pictures too.

So yeah, Troutrageous! to TROCAROC in 7 clicks...
If you have a Blogger-based blog, I'd be curious to see where you end up...


  1. Nice. Thanks for playing along. I just did it again, and ended up here? http://cowspotdog.blogspot.com/

  2. That is a weird thing. I'm gonna check it out.

  3. I do this every now and again from my blog and one time I happened upon a blog of someone that looked familiar to me. After looking at a few posts and pics, I figured out it was a a woman who was a supervisor of mine at the time...

  4. All I get are weird artsy/design-centric type blogs. Not sure what that means. Anyway, ended up here: http://feltmeupdesigns.blogspot.com/?expref=next-blog

    1. With a URL like Felt Me Up, I was hoping for so much more! :)

  5. So, just click "Next" seven times and see where it ends up? That what you said? Well, you asked for it, so I did it and here's where I landed on click #7. - - - http://ichabodthegloryhasdeparted.blogspot.com/?expref=next-blog
