Finding Blogs at Random

You can use the following URL (taken from the new Blogger Navbar) to be taken to a random, recently updated Blogspot blog:

http://www.blogger.com/redirect/next_blog.pyra

Using this random redirect, it should be possible to write a script storing all URLs in a database. One way of making the big list of who is out there. This Google search helps to get you an idea of how many Blogspot blogs are out there (around 710,000, it seems):

site:blogspot.com -inurl:html

(Using this search you cannot grab all the data, as Google limits results to the first 1,000 pages.)
