For as long as I can remember people have complained about the “next blog” link that appears by default at the top of Blogger blogs. No one likes it because it can lead visitors to random blogs that may or may not be appropriate for classrooms. For many years I’ve taught people how to change their Blogger template code to remove the “next blog” link. According to today’s post on the Official Blogger Blog, the “next blog” link is going to be eliminated in the next few months.
