I know you read my blog every morning and I just realized that tomorrow, when you sit at your desk, turn on your computer, and start to read the next post — you will have no idea in hell what I’m talking about.
For this he went to college?
So, since you are already asleep and I will be asleep tomorrow morning, let me give you a brief explanation.
YouTube is a place where people put all sorts of crazy videos online, sort of like a homespun America’s Funniest Home Videos. Like many things online, the age of most of the participants is 16.
Now I had never even heard of Lonelygirl15 until this morning. I was going onto Technorati (a resource for bloggers) to see if people were still searching for Suri Cruise as a subject of interest. I wanted to know if my last “panda” post was old news already, so I could beat myself up for not publishing it LAST week when Suri Cruise was hot.
Blogging is all in the timing.
While I was on Technorati, I saw that 9-11 was the #1 search of the day. That made sense.
But #2 was Lonelygirl15.
“Lonelygirl15? What the hell is that? Some new girl band?” I asked myself.
I’m sure you are as befuddled as I was.
Kids today! They’re nuts…
Anyway, with Suri getting old, I immediately needed some “hot” topic to bring in the important “young” demographic to my blog. I figured that by writing a “sexy” post about Lonelygirl15, I would show the kids that I’m “hip” to what they are doing. After all, if I want advertising dollars, I’m not going to get it with the bunch of old fogies who usually read this site — some of them are older than 25!
Anyway, Mom, now that you understand the background to the story, enjoy the next post! We’ll speak later…
