one ingredient to blowin' up your blog

today, as i thought up a brilliant title to a blog post i haven't written, i was thinking, "what is just one thing that could really change my blog? give it the boost it needs? really blow it up?"

you can sponsor.

you can do giveaways.

you could even post good content. but that's hard.

what you REALLY need is a celebrity backer.

let's take erin, from living in yellow, for example.

girlfriend is obsessed with giuliana rancic. or maybe she just likes her a lot. regardless…erin gently stalked, tweeted, posted about her…and traveled to chicago to eat at her restaurant. i think she even offered to be baby duke's nanny. correct me if i'm wrong, erin.

erin + giuliana = BFF4L

well, aside from erin being hysterical and awesome and i want to be her friend…erin has a bang-up blog with a boatload of readers. and her readers are loyal.

do you want to know why?

it's because giuliana backs erin's blog. it's true. i think they may even be secret besties.

sure giuliana may be a ridiculously busy, new mom, but who doesn't have time pop around the internet and read a blog post or two. i know giuliana does.

so now i just need to pick a celebrity to gently stalk from long-distance.

i briefly did this at the beginning of my blogging journey.

the pioneer woman was my target. then i got pregnant, had a baby, and ain't nobody got time for blog-stalking with a newborn.

but now i'm back in the game.

i need a celebrity who will give me few shout-outs. maybe even a few instagram "likes."

and before i know it…my farm blog will blow up and kaye will have modeling agencies knocking down our door and my true calling as a stage mom will come to fruition.

maybe i'll even land a guest appearance on the real housewives of (name a city).

blogging…it's a strategical process.

who would you choose to be your celebrity backer?

let's start a movement.

oh yeah, and that ridiculously clever blog post title?

juan for me, none for you

the post will be all about juan pablo…naturally.

idea // juan pablo will be my celebrity backer.


  1. I'm laughing my head off over here.

    Okay, lets see, since Guiliana is already taken I guess I'll call dibs on Hanson and Taylor Swift. That should hit all the ages in my target demographic, right?

    1. Hey wait! I want Hanson! I met them for my Make A Wish. Hahaha. Can we share them? ;)

  2. Loved this...such a good read. Hmmm who to choose? haha
    Follow my new blog, Crepes On a Tuesday

  3. While I love me some PW, I think I would have to choose Bethenny Frankel. That lady is a gas!

  4. Too funny!! Hmmmm mine would have to be Reese Witherspoon. She has the positive outlook I do, seems super sweet and so of course will fall over shouting how awesome I am from the rooftops! What? It could happen. Well, a girl can dream anyways. ;)

  5. Great idea! My celebrity backer would be Tori Spelling and we would be best friends. We have a lot of things not in common but we also have some major things in common. I've read her books and I love them.

  6. Mine would totally be Jennifer Aniston or Miranda Lambert.

  7. I actually read your blog... and now feel horribly deceived. Well played...

  8. Ha! My celebrity backer would have to be Mindy Kahling. That girl just cracks me up. If you are not watching "The Mindy Project", you should be

  9. Haha if Juan Pablo will bring a lottttt of followers :) xoxo

  10. I wish Katy Perry would back my blog ;) yes pleeeease.

  11. Oh my gosh. I love this. Brilliance. :)

  12. Haha I love this idea! I'm thinking an infamous celeb...Martha stewart? J Beibs? Miley?

  13. Ha ha too funny, love this post!!

  14. Lol! "Ain't nobody got time for blog-stalking with a newborn." I love it. We just stopped by to say hello. We're a shaving company called Dorco, and while you may not have heard of us yet, we're changing the way razors are done in the U.S. and Canada. Our razors cost up to 70% less than the big guys'.

Our razors are crafted with the highest quality blades and moisturizing strips containing aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate even the most sensitive skin. Read what others think about our products and our prices at DorcoUSA.com. Thanks again for this great post!

  15. haha love it! Mine would definitely be Miranda Lambert...or the Junk Gypsies!

  16. I'm going to fight for Jennifer Aniston, Blake Lively (although I think I would need to be a fashion blogger to land that one & lord knows that just ain't me), Minka Kelly (not a big enough celeb?!?), Biebs? He's going to need some love soon if he continues spiraling out of control.....the list is just so lone. =)

  17. What a great idea Celebrity Backer! But with a newborn on the way, I am with you...aint nobody got time for that! I will just have to follow your process and take notes. :)
    Love your blog! New reader- found you through The Eclectic Vet, a good friend.
    EKKK! (is it crazy I get so excited when I find someone knew I just love!)

  18. Ah! Can we both be blogging besties with Juan Pablo?!


  19. Haha, LOVE this! It's pretty much true for anything! Now off to find my celebrity to gently stalk . . . :)

  20. I'm glad I stumbled across your blog, I like your wit and style.
