Jen pointed out that today is Reveal Your Blog Crush Day. The timing is perfect because I know that a certain someone has a blog crush on ME. How do I know that? Well, for the past week that certain someone from Santiago, Chile has been spending an hour or more a day reading through the archives of my blog from the very beginning. Last I checked they were on May 2007. (Thanks, Site Meter. You never fail me.)
My initial responses to seeing those stats were 1) I hope they're not splogging my stuff in an attempt to try to pass it off as their own, which I've seen happen to other bloggers and regularly with my company's site and 2) I hope they're not doing bad things to or with my photos. The last thing I need to see is my face plastered on some Chilean porn site.
Brent's guess is that maybe I'm a microcelebrity, although I doubt I have any microfans who have started a Yahoo group about me. But I'm willing to bet it's something closer to his theory than mine.
I'm humbled that someone finds me interesting enough to spend hours and hours over a short period of time to read about my lil' ol' life. They've read quite a chunk of my archived 3 1/2 years. (Wow! It's been that long, huh?) So, dear Chilean blog reader, please feel free to delurk and make yourself known. Kthxbye.
But back to the big celebration of blog crushes! My blog crushes (I'm celebrating two today) won't be that much of a surprise because they know I'm a regular reader/commenter and they regularly read/comment on my site, but I'll happily take the opportunity to gush over them.
The first is Mrs. Twink at My So-Called Wedded Life! I think she found me while planning her own marvelous wedding. We are similar in so many ways, not just because we happen to both be mixed children of Asian/White couples. She's got such spunk in her writing and I bet she'd be a riot to hang out with!
The second is A Mental Fracture, who happens to be a close friend of Mrs. Twink! I found him while egosurfing to see who was linking to this site. He is... well, he's virtually indescribable. He's smart and witty and hilarious. I always laugh out loud when I read his entries.
Alright, your turn! Who are you blog crushing on?
