To be more clear, which blogger would you like to spend the day with in their house, observing their life and family… cooking and eating with them, hanging-out with their significant other and kids… chatting with about whatever it is you find so fascinating about them… watching carefully to see if they burp during dinner…????
And let’s be clear, this isn’t an effort to get you to say, “YOU, Emily! YOU are my favorite blogger! Let’s hang-out!” No, this thought came to me the other night after reading a post by one of my favorite bloggers, and I was thinking (as I have several times before), “Man, that would be a trip to spend the day at her house! I would laugh and watch in amazement at the awesomeness and ordinariness of her life.”
OK, so my choice would be Heather Armstrong from Dooce.com. She is pretty much the most awesome blogger out there, and not only because she was a big part of beginning the whole blogging about your every day life phenomenon. She’s one of the biggest, but only because she’s one of the best. I laugh out loud regularly when I read her blog because not only is she freakin’ hilarious, she’s very self-deprecating and blogs about everything from her kids to design to photography to her butt. (broken tailbone) She has the ability to make any situation funny, and although that’s not one of my gifts, I am gifted at laughing at people like that! If I got the opportunity to spend the day with her family, I would be pretty intimidated but I find her completely fascinating, so I would love every minute of it.
So, what about you? Who would you pick? Someone you admire? Someone you’d like to sit down and have a long conversation with? Someone whose blog you stalk and feel like you know personally but they have no idea who you are? Someone who you leave regular comments for and have gotten to know? OK, I’ll stop…. but tell me what you’d like to spend the day with and why!
