Blogcrushes


Now Playing: Damien Rice - 'I Remember'.
Topic: Empty Fridge Light

I know, I'm really fucking saaaaaaaaad, but do you ever get blogcrushes?
You know, where you think a blog's fab, and you wish you could write so well, then it goes a bit further, and you wish you could be their friend, then you wish you could marry them, then wish you could somehow magically be them, then capture them and keep them in a cage, but you wouldn't be cruel, you'd build them a wheel, and you'd watch them run around and around and around on it, then just want their life, because goddammit, it might help you to write better about your own?
And then you check on their blog as regularly as you can, and worry that you're showing up too manically in their referrals list, and if they one day happen to post up a picture, you go 'ahh, I knew they'd look like that'?
I think the key factor is, have you ever wondered what it would be like to hang out with the person who wrote what you're reading?
No? Oh. Just me then.

Blogcrushes I have had, typically, anally, obsessively, in the order in which I had them:
Eurotrash.
SarahSpace.
Muscle 68.
Light From An Empty Fridge.
Emma's Words.
Paul.
Colin Gregory Palmer.
No Boys.
Glitter For All.
There, that's scared a few off, hey?

Naaah, I get this far "and if they one day happen to post up a picture, you go.." well, I go Ewwwwww! and never return, usually. Ack, call me shallow and see if I don't remove you from my blog list at the first chance.. ;-)

Are you saying you are over me? While I sit in my house night and after night having my crush on you? Wondering why you don't appear in my referral list as much as before. Thinking that I must have said something wrong or you saw my picture and said "Oh, nooooo" I think I need to go cry.

And then there will be all the broken hearts that didn't make your list.:/

Oh, I am so flattered!

And yeah, it's not just you, I've had my share of blog crushing too. And a blog date...

No, no blog crushes but I have been a little jealous of other people's writing ability or wished I'd thought of an idea they had about a current event, etc.

I do tend to be a frequent clicker, however. :-)

I am devastated that I didn't make the list, but wasn't going to mention it - seeing as it would seem all sad and stalkery... But as it's been mentioned.. Yeah... I'm heartbroken. *sniffle*

Ah, see, mere jealousy can be cured by simply stealing willy nilly...

AHH! Does that mean I can't use your links list as an extension of my own now otherwise you'll think I'm stalking you from all the frequent visits? ;-)

I'm with Kat. Mine ventures more into the "I'm so jealous of your incredible writing that I'll read you obsessively then stop reading you alltogether because you're so good it depresses the hell out of me" catagory. Then again, I've got some self-esteem issues. ...OK, OK, LOTS of self-esteem issues...

I'm sure I posted a comment earlier but your comment system infallibly weeds out drunks, so it just didn't happen.

Anyway, all I wanted to say was "blimey, you don't want *my* life, trust me". That Eurotrash bird seems to do okay, though.

Now. Let's see. I click "continue"...

Wow! I feel so honored that I was the recipient of a crush by the wonderful Vanessa! I had a madblogcrush on you for a while, but with my internet time being dissolved at work, and me not being home enough to get online, I've had to satisfy myself with just reading your blog instead of being able to comment. You're still one of the best, most creative writers I've ever read.

Actually, I am familiar with the concept of blogcrushes. I had on you after all. (I don't read people that I wouldn't want to be.)

Definitely not just you. Happens to me all the time. Blogcrushes have to compete with [insert real thing here]crushes, and one finds him or her self blogging and reading blogs more than one used to communicate with one's actual friends. Sometimes.

It's fun, but scary.

Maybe that's just me:)

Cheers!

I know *exactly* what you mean. I have a *big crush* on a blog (won't give you the url cos I'm embarrassed admitting this) and I've even sent 'fan mail' to the writer of it. She thinks and writes so well that I always feel like I should just pack in my own blog because she does it all so much better... And, yes, I honestly think she and I could be really good friends... I'm such a loser. Such a god damned, blog-stalking loser...

i'd just like to point out that i was too scaraed to include the current crop on that list.

Like y'all read my mind.
But they say that the two best things to do to improve one's writing are to:
a) write every day (unemployed, so I can do that, easy-peasy, next)
&
b) read great writing (which is also a cinch since I've got such great bloggers such as yerselves to read on a daily basis!)

Hey, I just had a thought

[applause]

Thank you, thank you.

If you like one of your own posts and re-read it, is that blogsturbation?

There's worse. There's re-reading all of your own archives.

Hmmm - I thought I posted a comment to this post but I don't see it. Did I screw it up somehow? I didn't think it was creepy but with all the talk of blog crushes and what have you...maybe it was!

Well at any rate I noticed that we have a blog crush in common. Great taste you have ;)

There's re-reading and LAUGHING at your own jokes too. Oh, and going 'I don't remember that' when it was only a few months ago...

There's a lot of it about.
I just saw this little e-chain and am laughing out loud.
I am SO doomed.

Just realised the bible used us as pre-tech warning to the faithful:

"As a blog returneth to its own comment"


(I actually quite like that. I keep laughing.
How sad am I?
I am SO doomed.)

Thanks. I looked at your blog, but I couldn't work out which you mean. Why not try the others? CGP has done a brilliant entry this weekend. Makes me want to put him in a cage and feed him carrots that I've whittled down to super small size
