Best Of The Webs

June 28, 2013

I need to preface this by telling you that my hands are sweating profusely. I realize this has nothing to do with the Best Of The Webs but it’s bothering me so much right now that I just need to tell someone. Thank you for listening. And feel free to tell me what’s bothering you so much RIGHT NOW. I’m all about returning favors. You probably didn’t even know this about me. So now you do. Good talk. Ok, now onto some of my favorite places this week. Sometimes I get completely overwhelmed by how wide the world web is that I don’t venture out enough to find cool new places and cool new people. And then when I do, I don’t let them know how cool I think they are. And I should. It makes my day when someone lets me know that they think I’m cool (which rarely happens but when it does, holy shit, day MADE). Resolution: Let the cool people know that they’re cool. Starting with The Bloggess. Jenny Lawson does not know I exist on this planet. Truthfully, I doubt she’d even care, if she knew. This chick is the most hilarious writer I’ve come across in pretty much all of my life. Her writing is so good that it makes my blog sound like Cass’s four-year-old daughter wrote it. When she was three. Look, we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others but dammit I just can’t help myself when I’m reading Jenny’s genius on screen. So check out her blog, if not to feel bad about your lack of wit then to at least laugh your ass off. Next up is another cool chick who has no clue I exist: Joy Wilson aka Joy The Baker. (This blog post is doing little for my self esteem today. But it’s not all about me.) I own just 5 cookbooks and Joy’s is one of them. Joy’s blog overflows with gorgeous photos, creative recipes, and stories that make you just want to hug her (and I’m not a hugger). She speaks so genuinely that sometimes I pretend she’s my friend and we’re just hanging out baking cookies together. Actually she’s baking, I’m eating, but details. I envy her ease but love her all the same. So click on her and ask her if she’ll be my real friend for me. Please. I can’t handle the rejection when she says no. Or worse, ignores. It doesn’t get worse than the ignore. Lastly (this is all about the awesome ladies today), we have Holly Woodcock (I know what you’re thinking) of Holly Would If She Could. Holly is a badass CrossFitting BEAST but that’s not why I love her. I love her because she talks to me (yes, I realize she’s not talking to me) like we’re longtime pals and she’s updating me on how her day went. She shares the good, the bad, the indifferent, and then some more. Holly puts her insecurities out there and I like that. It makes me feel better about my own insecurities (shit, I know this is not all about me, there I go again). And that’s my three Best Of The Webs today! Now, tell me whose blogs you regularly read. This is not a rhetorical question. I’m asking because I really want to know. So if you’ve gotten this far and you’re reading these words right now then you best be hitting that comment button in precisely two seconds. (This may be coming across as too demanding but I don’t ask you often enough (ever) to comment, mainly because if I ask and then don’t see comments it will mean you’ve rejected me and we’ve already established how I feel about that. Whew. Now comment.)
