Removing Blogger's "Next Blog" link

For those of you using Blogger.com (a.k.a. Blogspot or Google's blog) there is a button at the top of the screen that says "Next Blog>>."

While this may be a nice feature for randomly navigating the world of blogs, it can be a bit dangerous in the education space. It seems, on average after 3 clicks of this button, you will encounter a site with material innappropriate for students, and certainly not something to which you want your blogged "linked."

To remove this feature, you need to modify the template for your blog. Don't panic it is pretty easy. Click here for step-by-step instructions.
