Tendrils of words and links and recommendations, strings of sentences and connections, the blogosphere is a spider's web. We are all flies caught in it's addiction, tied tightly to each other by the ethereal ropes. Meanwhile, in a seemingly contradictory manner, we are each of us spiders trawling our web and gathering our flies, collecting lists of links and friends and contacts. Like secret agents, we know only a few, who in turn know a few, who again know a few more. Following the links in the chain could get you anywhere, any country, any imagination.

Does this scare or fascinate you?

Hi Stace,

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I just wanted you to know I have posted Part 2 of my story just for you and the Final Part will be posted tomorrow.

Fact is stranger than fiction.

In answer to your question on your post, I think its fascinating. I am relatively virginal to the blogging world and it has quite literally saved me from myself. Its wonderful how people get to know each other through other people, just like in the real world in a way, only it seems easier in the blogosphere.

I love it how sometimes when I go blog hopping at random and end up coming across someone that I've come across before through someone else. If that makes any sense at all.

It certainly doesn't scare me...it's the only reason worth doing this, that intricate web.

The fascination has always been there, but I find I make less time for it now, which is probably a good thing.

But do I like that my spider web includes you and Aidan and Lee and Keshi and others in Oz, Menchie in the Phillipines, Angel in South Africa, Gautami in India, Ziggi and Cherrypie in Britain and so many others?

Yup. It is fascinating.

I've met some wonderful people that I no doubt would not have met had it not been for the blogging world, like you and Aidan! :-) I've just tried to limit myself as to how many blogs I read and go to. I just don't have the time to visit ALL of them! But usually there is something that "clicks" when I read a blog and I just KNOW that that is someone I would like to know better and blog with, you know???
