I would like to read other blogs- but where are they?

  1. I am new to wordpress.com. and have been able to launch my blog. (www.themodestgirls.com) However, I can't seem to find where there is a directory to read other blogs.

    I found "Freshly Pressed" but it seems random the top 12 or so blogs listed there. And some of them seem to be not so "Freshly Pressed"
    :) .

    Also I've clicked on a few tag words in some side bar which was hard to find but again it seems very hap hazard to find something of interest. I can't figure out how to be a follower since I have noone to follow :)

    The folks that have found my blog-- how did they find me? Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is themodestgirls.com.

  2. The Freshly Pressed selections are made by a single editor and everyone's posts (31 million) are all competing for her attention. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/feature?replies=12#post-484719

  3. Thanks timethief.

    So how did people find my blog? Is it by going to Google and inputting one of the words I tagged? Is it that random?

    Unfortunately, I want to remain anonymous ( a little embarrassed about my topic!) so I can't send my site to any of my friends. txs

  4. Anyone can type any keyword or keyword phrase into Google and if that's a word in your indexed blog content that appears in search engines then they could click into your blog. In the case of words like "cleavage" and big breasts" one's posts would be right there in the search resultys along with all the blogs for males who drool over half clad women.

  5. Yes-- kind of creepy. So I will leave those out. maybe I'll go & delete some of those tags... :)

  6. I wouldn't worry. Some of those guys could use a life lesson.

    Of course, this is coming from the person who created this post. Still, a porn surfer liked it enough to submit it to Digg. http://raincoaster.com/2006/08/01/beaver-shots/
