Two or three degrees of separation?

| | Comments (3)
So recently I've been reading through the archives of BĂȘte de Jour as recommended by Dave a while back. On one particular post I read through all the comments. First up I noticed a comment from Penelope who is a reader of Delmer who is a reader of Dave's. So not hugely surprising (since Penelope reads Dave's too). But much more surprising was seeing a comment from Suburban Hen. Surprising because I've never linked there, and yet she is there. So she would have found another path there. SH linked to some Javaira's recent posts and this morning I was reading "Patricia's" responses to them. It still spins me out how things people say on their blogs end up half way round the world touching other people's lives.

They say everyone is linked to everyone else on the planet by "six degrees of separation". I reckon it'd be much much less in the blogosphere..

I'm constantly surprised by the people I see commenting on blogs I read, as I'll know them from somewhere else.

Sometimes I'm able find a common path. Maybe another blog we both read that leads to the third blog.

Other times I'm lost as to how we happened to end up in the same place. (And just assume it's magic.)

Ya, I did find Bete through Dave too. I started reading Dave because of you, ages ago. Mystery solved.
Bete is brilliant though, aint he?

Yeah.. I hope he does find someone through his blog .. although from your and my experience, he'll probably find someone in America or somewhere silly :)
