Lijit Update

Just a quick bit of information re Lijit over there in the sidebar. I added the Lijit search function to this blog a bit over a year ago and find it very useful, and highly recommend it to any other bloggers out there. I have recently enabled a couple of other features on it. They’re not new, it’s just I’ve never previously enabled them. So, the “Surprise Me” button will now take you to a random article in this blog. The “Explore” button will give you a diagrammatic view of blogs that are fans of this blog, friends of this blog and blogs followed by this blog. You can then click on any of them to create their diagram, etc etc. It’s not totally accurate, but kind of interesting. Anyway, just thought I’d draw it to your attention.

The diagrams from the Explore function look good. Do you know what the different colours mean?

I didn't notice at first, but way up in the top left of the diagram is a colour guide for the three groups.

Oops, I also missed that. Thanks for explaining it.
