Ok, so it isn’t that amazing.¬¨‚Ä† And it’s not really a phenomenon.¬¨‚Ä† Or even a ring.¬¨‚Ä† But “The blog” is too terse and pretty non-descriptive.
I’ve been noticing an odd thing recently.¬¨‚Ä† I subscribe to a fair few blogs (by subscribe, I mean I have their RSS feeds plugged into Google Reader) and over the last few weeks I’ve found that seemingly unconnected blogs have the same people comment on them.
Of course, I’m a link between these blogs, but I can’t see that being the reason. No, the reason is that there are only a handful of people who comment on blogs, and between them, they read every site in existence. That’s the only conceivable explanation.
