Date a girl who blogs

UPDATE: Date a girl who blogs is now part of a NY-based theater performance by Lively Productions


Date a girl who blogs. Date a girl who finds solace in sharing her most private letters to the noises of the world. She has a rhythm to the writing, as the sounds — the tap-tap-tapping — are touched with every bit of emotion she can muster. She’s writing, ignoring the 9% battery warning as she tries to add a little more perspective to your world.

Date a girl who blogs. Find her that new restaurant and wait for her, patiently, as she skims through the menu, to cherish the Serifs and italics of the posh, and the Arials and doodles of the diner. Watch her order, and question the waiter, and then the head chef to hear a story you’ve never cared to hear before. You will learn. Watch her envelop her tongue at the morsel awaiting judgement, then chew, her face barely betraying a smile as she takes down notes on a torn paper napkin. She forgot her notebook. Buy her one. And seal it with the URL of your new blog.

Today she’s doing more than just writing. She’s moving the widgets, repositioning the ads and maybe doing a bit of SEO. Help her. Buy her a new domain — buy it for 3 years with a promo code — and then maybe configure a forwarding email address, because you know deep down that self-hosted email servers are a thing of the past.

Share her posts on Facebook. Like them. Create a hashtag for your affection to her and let her come to this knowledge through the Internet, but follow through in real life. Your story deserves to be written down.

Suggest her for #FollowFriday.

Go out on dates. Let her heart open up to you and digest these memories into a single post which will be remembered in the archives of our search engines. Kiss. Change your relationship status. Kiss some more. Add her friends. You now have more mutual friends. Tag your photos together. Add her on Farmville. Harvest her farm. Poke her.

You are no longer forever alone.

Marry a girl who blogs. Propose to her by making a website with animated gifs and MIDI background music; she will show you the secret journal she’s been writing for years for you, and you alone. You will find that it comes with no ads, no links, no page rank. Only her trust rank. You will be overjoyed to read the fondness she has had of you, and realize that this, and this alone is the memory she chose to keep from her readers.

Have kids with a girl who blogs. Let her post photos and status updates about your children. Share them with your friends. You will see that she has saved everything onto a USB drive and printed the most fond ones for a real family album because the grandparents are not on the Internet.

Date a girl who blogs because she will find interestingness in the most uninteresting of things. You deserve to be interesting and that this life you live, though monotonous in its day to day is the perfect testament to why she loves you.


Are you a girl who’s yet to start a blog? There’s a myriad of reasons to get started with your blogging journey, see here for a blogging tutorial.

Rico, BROMANCE is in the air!

But yes…Jayvee’s the man. <3

Hahaha! This post makes me giggle and think of my boyfriend while reading it. I think I should share this link with him… so that he will finally propose and have kids with me. I really can’t help but laugh. Hahaha!

That was beautifully written. *sniff*
Except…my exes who were connected to my secret blog have now deleted all their blogs out of bitterness. *sigh* This post made me remember so many sad things. Hahahaha!

I dated (attempted more like) a girl who had a blog about side pony tails – or pony tails worn to the side.

It didn’t go well.

Good stuff, Jayvee!

However, the past would say – Don’t date a girl who blogs and tells everyone their story. Hahah! 🙂 for the super private person, blogging aint their thing BUT I’d say – Date a girl who blogs! She’s filled with spunk, courage and thoughts!

See you, soon!

great job jayvee! can you please help ma make my first blog?:-)Nice seeing you in our event at Nuvo!

I think I saw an episode of “House” in which there was a girl that blogged all the time and it drove her boyfriend crazy that she made public so much of her and their life.

This was a great post!

A Girl Who Blogs,

This is a nice post, Jayvee. Thanks to The BullRunner for reading this, she got inspired to have her own version. 🙂

Worth the read.(not only because I’m a woman and I’m a blogger). God bless.
