Blogspot has a nice bug; with certain settings you can see all recent links of other blogs to your blog when you look at the preview version of an unpublished text. This made me curious about which other blogs are linking to mine. It turned out that they're quite a few, and here's the list of blogs that link to me permanently (in the side column, not just in some blog post):
Me thinks this list is quite interesting and surprising. The political spectrum varies from left to unpolitical to undefined to right. And when I say "right", then I mean the U.S. right wing, which would be called names if it was in Germany.
The preferred topics of these blogs vary just as much; hardware blogs, news blogs, thinker blogs and agitator blogs are mixed.
Sometimes I cannot even figure out why they link to me; sometimes simply because I cannot even read their language.

OK, this was another placeholder blog post without original thought. I promise, I'll improve.
These are the working titles for my existing text drafts:
"Camouflage concealment and deception progresses in the 20th century's German military"
"Barbarossa what ifs"
"On recruitment for software-based conflicts"
"Musings about conventional warfare on a Northeast Europe-like terrain"
"Public debt after a war with conscription"
"Some old aircraft"
"On the nature of non-battlefield electronic warfare / "cyber warfare""
"About the Watadas and Pfaffs in the world"
... and there's also a concept in my head about macroeconomic variables, military adventurism and priority-setting plus I'm still working on the RHS Giorgios Averoff and Finnish infantry tactics. The latter is only research, though. Damn that language barrier!
