My Blog Crush is...

As per Darren over at Problogger's request, I've started thinking about who my blog crush is.
This was hard.
I thought about it probably more than I should have, but it was interesting to me.
I started looking at the blogs I visit almost daily, the ones I enjoy so much and saw how in a way I have a crush on each of them:

While I have four new crushes, Eric, Lance, Jennifer, and Yzabel, I'm still just getting to know them.

11 Crushes
- No one touches me like Patry and Carter do.
- No one makes me laugh like Josh and Pat do.
- Then there is the wisdom of Jean and the ever smart Gina.
- There is the sci-fi crowd of Lee and Cavan who also introduce me to the latest trends in the book business.
- Speaking of latest book trends, Georganna is a fountain full.
- And Trée is so cool that I was afraid to comment on his blog for a while.
- Yet, in order to be the writer I want to be, I would like to be able to write like easywriter. Easywriter's descriptive language is one of the finest I've seen. It is literary in the true sense of the word. It is poetry in prose. In fact, I had to stop commenting on her blog because I was embarrassing myself.
My crush on easywriter isn't new. I've already written about easywriter in an earlier post.

So there you go, my 11 blog crushes.

Melly, I am honoured and touched by this. Thank you.

Jennifer said...

Oye! How did I miss such a wonderful compliment until now? I'm usually so good at sniffing them out.

Enough though! I'm verklempt over here. Thanks for the nod, Melly, I'm glad I make someone (besides myself) laugh on occasion.

If you really like the yucks, hang on: I'm moving to Texas at the beginning of 2006, and thus I am guaranteed plenty of mocking southerner, mocking self, mocking everything material. Should be a riot.

If I can manage to stay sane. ;)

Cavan said...

Score! I have a crush on my blog, too (although I'm having an affair with my hit counter, but ssshh!)

Melly said...

Josh, I can't wait.

LOL Cavan. Me too, only I have 2(!) counters.

elcapitanhink said...

Counter schmounter. I am a member of a 2-entity cult: My awstats/bbclone/ package and me. Nothing like knowing what particular build a visitor's browser is. ;)

Melly said...

Josh, lucky you. Unfortunately I don't have a server and all. Have to rely on those free stat services.

Pat Kirby said...

Well, heck, thanks again.

For what it's worth, I really enjoy your blog even though you're a nice blogger.

Splat. Back-handed compliment.

Seriously. I'm-A-Bitch. So I gravitate toward bitchy, rude and opinionated. So your blog joins the ranks of the very few "nice" and coincidently interesting bloggers in my bookmarks*.

(*Too lazy to figure out blogrolling or RSS.)

Melly said...

It's worth a lot, Pat.

And I can give you many more compliments but I won't because I know how uncomfortable it makes you feel.

It's okay. You never ever have to thank me. I know how hard it is for you.
(Right now, I'm very happy with my little snarky remark - yey).
Of course, I had to resist the urge to put 5 smileys after it.

Yzabel said...

Thank you for including my little corner of a blog in your post, even if not in the direct list of crushes ;)

Come to think of it, I haven't made my own list yet... I need to settle myself to it someday, I suppose!

Melly said...

Oh, Yzabel, I do totally have a bloggy crush on you, just wanted to see if it would last and grow into lurve ;)

Patry Francis said...

Add me to the touched and honored list. Thanks, Melly!

Melly said...


Trée said...

Melly, your post has brought a smile to my face tonight. Thanks. Now, how do I live up to "cool." ;-)

Melly said...

With this picture, tree, how do you not???

Gina said...

thanks melly! I'm usually here everyday also so back at ya!

Melly said...

Thanks Gina :) :) :)

Shirazi said...

Melly said...
