Try searching for a topic or a name there and see which blogs write about the topic or person. Use filters – search only for posts on blogs with "a lot of authority" if you only want to see popular blogs. You can also search for blogs on ordinary search engines like Google. Try searching for edublogging – or add "blog" to whatever topic you’re interested in.

Every two weeks there’s a "teaching carnival" where a blogger who’s interested in teaching compiles a list of interesting blog posts about teaching from the last fortnight. There’s a list of teaching carnivals at the Teaching Carnival blog.
