How blogs spread news fast

Eli at Lefti on the News emailed me yesterday saying I’m getting hundreds of hits off your site from my story you posted about the empty pro-Bush ‘camp” in Crawford. This didn’t happen when you first posted it. Any idea what’s happening?

Here’s what happened. I emailed Crooks and Liars about the Polizeros post on Arnold getting booed at the Stones concert. They linked to it, and Polizeros got several thousand hits (Thanks, John!).

Right under the Stones story was the post about the empty pro-Bush camp. Readers clicking through from C&L saw that and went to Lefti, so they got hundreds of hits.
And that is how blogs spread news fast (Listservs too – I got the Stones story from the Rock and Rap Confidential listserv.)
