Imaginary Men in 2010 “reads WOW”!


Check out this cool thing WordPress sent me about my blogging last year. And many thanks to Fabulous Blogging Pal Julie for all the traffic! (also, clearly someone needs to make a movie with Ewan McGregor, Brad Pitt, Nathan Fillion and Paul Wesley! Maybe about James Dean? 😉 )

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

  1. James Deans’ appeal is so timeless. Always makes me wonder if he would have had the same resonance had he stayed alive, and not young and hot forever in our imaginations. Having a tragic story would suck, but it does put you in a position of adoration of mythic proportions.

    • That is indeed true. He can never disappoint – grow old, fat, marry women young enough to be his daughter, have secret gay affairs, get lines on his face, make a bad movie, buy an island and become a hermit!

      He will ALWAYS be young, beautiful, slightly dangerous, a little damaged, vulnerable, rebellious and perfect. He is the prototype for so many pop-culture archetypes of male-ness, whatever would we have done without him??

  2. When you get to 100,000 hits (which be be very soon, I know it!) I’m making you an insane cake!

    Just got to figure out which of the Imaginary Men to pop out of it… 😉

  3. How COOL is that? What a sweet little blogiversary gift! (Although, I wonder if the people who’s Blog-Health-o-Meters don’t say “Wow” feel the same way, when they get there’s. ;))

    Thanks so much for the shout-out! 🙂 I’m truly honored! I have no doubt that any person who hopped from my blog to yours, had hours and hours of fangirl fabulousness and fun, as a result, my Sister from Another Mother (and Father). 🙂

    Here’s hoping 2011 gives you even more of the accolades you deserve, plenty of adventures, hundreds of hot men, a boatload of fangtasticness, and a whole lotta Flowers!

    (Oh, and I would totally see a movie starring Ewan McGregor, Nathan Fillion, and Paul Wesley. Perhaps, they can all play James Dean at different points in his life . . . kind of like they did with Bob Dylan, in “I’m Not There.”) 🙂

    • Clearly WE need to be hired to write this damn movie!! Perhaps I should start campaigning on Twitter w/ Nathan Fillion. Gonna be hard to get to NoTwitterPaul that way though 😉
