I wrote a list of blogging goals for 2008. The list includes things like "Quadruple the daily visitor count", "Write more tutorials" and "Drop more f-bombs".
Another one of my goals is to somehow figure out a way to get Tina Fey to read my blog. In her American Express magazine ad (the one with the photo of her and her cute daughter, Alice), she says that her perfect day includes:
"Coffee/playground/nap/exercise/flea market/playground/bathtime/dinner with grownups/see a great movie/asleep by 9pm."
Do you see "flea market" listed there? I'm guessing that she doesn't go to flea markets for the cheap socks. Maybe she likes the same kind of vintage stuff that I write about. I'm also hoping that she might think my blog is funny and she might actually laugh at something that I would write. And yet another connection...we both lived in Upper Darby, PA. Lucky us.
I don't want anything from her. Well, maybe just some kind of sign that she read the blog. But that's it. I don't have a screenplay to send her, and I don't expect a role on 30 Rock as Liz Lemon's lesbian love interest. I just think she is really funny, and she might enjoy my blog. And, since the writer's strike is going on and the Golden Globes were just cancelled, maybe she is really bored and is looking for something to do. (Fat chance, but it makes sense in my silly little head.)
I'm sure Tina is already reading my blog under the username vintage-ho, so she totally knows about Big Boggle, my father-in-law's cock sock, and my childhood yard sale memories. But I'd like to send her a link just in case I'm wrong. Unfortunately, I can't seem to track down an email address or website for her, but I have all year to keep trying...
UPDATE: So, 2008 is long gone. Did I flourish or did I fail? Read the results on freshblogtips.com.
