Six degress of blogging

What I've noticed while blogging is that I keep coming across the same bloggers over and over. Which is nice, don't get me wrong, but it was interesting as well. I comment a lot on people's blogs, and even if I don't comment I usually read the comments and I noticed I was seeing the same names and/or names and profile pics.

For example, I'd go to Kristy's blog and I'd see ramblin girl's comment, and then maybe I'd go to her blog and I'd see terri's comments and beadinggalinms comments or HDD. Or I'd go to Undr's blog and see Chrish or Mean Girl (who has Faith from Buffy the Vampire Slayer as her profile pic so she gets extra props), and so on and so on and for some strange reason it's a nice familiar feeling, like we're all real good friends who stop by and vist often. Coming in for coffee and cake and tea or something.

It's actually nice to keep running into the same people because then you can keep up with their stories and trials and whatever else they have going on. But it was still interesting that I would go to the same, say, five or six blogs and run into the same group of fifteen people or so, like we're all traveling in the same circle of blogs. Hee hee.

I don't know about anyone else, but that's really how I find other blogs, through comments. If someone has a comment I like or find funny, I'll visit their blog and probably keep going back, especially if I keep seeing their name a lot. But it's nice because now I have a few more people I can add to my blog links. Those are people I visit all the time, so I link them. Other people I bookmark, but the people in my links are the places I go most often. I like your blogs to be convienient.

Also, if I don't hear from you guys until after Christmas...

Have a Holly Jolly Holiday
and a Very Merry Christmas!

    99.9% of the time, that is how I find blogs to read.
    I think there are these 'circles' of bloggers and it revolves around and around.
    Then once in a while a new blogger will come along and then that may add a new cirle.
    I think its neat also!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    And since I have to link everything to buffy it's like the Scooby gang, and when someone comes along and they help figh demons then they become a scooby member and the group grows (or gets smaller) but it's always open to members.

    Another resolution; TO UPDATE MY BLOGGY LINKS!!

    I agree, our little community is really comforting~ and I've been so bad about being quiet on the blogs I really enjoy.

    We BtVS fans really have to stick together!!!

    Happy Holidays

    Very cool post and I love seeing the same people as well! I also enjoy the comment section, sometimes more then the blog, hehehe. I love to see how different or similiar they are to my feelings and my comments.

    Mmmm, yes. We're all a bit incestuous aren't we? ;P I hope our bloggy offspring aren't retarded.
