You may feel like you have a stalker, but please don’t fret.
Over a year ago in a half-hearted attempt to familiarize myself with this thing called ‘blog’ I googled Canada’s top blogs and scrolled around lists and bumped into Schmutzie.com. I read, and read, and read some more. I burst out laughing, I sat at the screen dumbly, I empathized, I laughed some more, and I fell in love with a girl named Schmutzie.
I remembered a particular story that made me burst into flames of laughter, about a Coffee and a Muffin. (Mom, and others like her, left click on the Coffee and a Muffin and it will take you to the story!)
I wrote to you that night. I sent you a little note that said that I had been reading your blog and the whole time assumed you were located in Toronto; you were so cosmopolitan I told you. And then I saw you were from Regina and choked on the Saskatchewan Prairie Dust that hung between us as I am in Saskatoon.
Well Schmutzie, my attempt at blog familiarization was brief. However, in the last few months I have been working on one myself and at the start of the process revisited your blog and re-read the flame inducing post and my love for you reignited. Then I realized that your face was familiar to me, and I see that although I don’t think we have met, we know many of the same people. This makes me confidently stalk you in public forums (twitter inc.) and I am sending you this letter to say, “Hey! I read your blog and talk to you on twitter and you make me laugh every day and I love your writing and I want to tell the whole world about you!”
As a total blogger newbie I will confess to you the total excitement I have at linking to your blog in mine so that my friends can read you. You have such an incredible writing talent and as I told you before– you are pure and honest and insightful.
