There's another birthday on Sunday 14th, it's also Joy's big day.
I had a visit on my Poetry Galore site by Pamela, from;
she came to my site via some “Aerobic Blog Hopping”
which you can read about by visiting her site, Say Hi while you’re there.
This started me thinking about the movie “Six Degrees of Separation”
and wondering how many moves it might take me to travel from a random blog and via the blog rolls of sites I visited to get back home to Holties House.
So for about 2 hours I zoomed around sites I’d never heard of before,
this started out with a randomly selected site, not as simple a task as I had envisioned, by the process of selecting “next blog” I had to bypass probably the first 35 sites I landed on.
No, I was not cheating or trying to find an easy path, the sites I rejected were (a) in a foreign language about 15, (b) were instructional or sales sites about 15, (c) were sites without a blog roll, which I needed for my next move, about 5.
What I was looking for initially was a site just like yours and mine and I finally found one, you can trace my progress with the links below, from the starting point in
The first name I recognized was The Complimentary Commenter,
That led me to Ribbitcus who I had also heard of and finally to Marti, who is on my blog roll, an interesting way to while away a HOT afternoon.
