His name is Paul.
He whooshed into my cyberworld like a hurricane.
He fawned over me with gushing compliments, saying we'd make beautiful biracial babies.
He wants to have text.
Hey, hey Paul...
In actuality, all the cyber-attention from BlogPaul -- tech, tattoos, talk -- has felt nice.
'specially on days when I blog and wonder:
"Is there anybody out there?"
Paul is there.
And so is his new WordPress blog, after he gave up on Blogger after seven long years.
I didn't even know Blogger was around that long!
"Life is 95% Jesus Christ…the other 5 for me is tech, tattoos and talk" says Paul's about page, warming my (and his heaven-bound) soul.
I like the things you do for me...
I cried out for link love.
Paul posted his "Brown. Racist. Blog Starlet." piece, as irreverent and spicy as his strong personality.
The image in BlogPaul's header is to die for.
Wish I could paste it here but I don't think I'm as techie as this tech-star who wants to launch a business with me.
He says I blew him off.
I think I'm still thinking...
But his face puts me in mind of John Favreau, one of my favorite actors.
(I've seen his excellent co-starring movie, The Break-Up at least twice now, but I'm not hinting at anything...)
Onward Christian blogger...
Paul is 37, like me, but unmarried. (Have you tried eHarmony.com?)
He spills the wonderful details of his manic brain in hotly-titled posts like "I'm so gay!!" and "To all of my ex-girlfriends," sucking you into his lair.
I love Paul's pics splashed throughout his site, really giving readers a great feel for him as a man.
His complete and sometimes self-deprecating honesty is the stuff great blogs are made of.
I can change for you...
If only my cyber-stalker would move that "About" and "Home" perhaps to his header's left, I wouldn't have to scan for it when I visit.
And that small text font size is readable but would be great if larger. A serif or two won't kill ya!
Get the Latin out your "asides"...
And you know my pet peeve that every blogger should have an email sign-up box.
Fix your RSS buttons at the bottom, 'cause they ain't working for me.
And please, please, please, figure out how to name your WordPress URLs with keywords from your post titles, and not those number thingees. I can just smell the search-engine traffic you're losing.
Then tell me, my-almost-namesake Paul, how you did it. I'm your WordPress protege.
