I Can't Believe It!

I know I've talked about this on my blog before, but it continues to amaze me how much I get into reading other people's blogs. Reading someone else's thoughts day after day makes it easy to feel like you know them.

I have a rotation of blogs I read often and they fall into a couple different categories. The first are people I met and knew in person before reading their blog (or maybe they didn't have a blog until after I had met them). For example, there are Jake, Anne and Laurie. Another category is those people whose blogs I read before I met them (or maybe I still haven't met them, but have some chance of meeting them) like Danielle, Ali, Di and Corporate Hippy. Still another category is those people I have never met and will probably never meet like Fat Cyclist, Alaska Jill, Pioneer Woman and Alex. Regardless of what category they fit into, I feel like I've gotten to know them (or at least the person they seem like on their blog). So, it continues to amaze me when I see (or hear) something that doesn't jibe with the persona I have envisioned.

Now, I'll get to the real point of this post. Yesterday, Fat Cyclist posted some videos on his site. So now, Elden Nelson has a voice for me. Here's the problem. It's not at all the voice that was in my head. It's not that there's anything wrong with his voice. It's just not what I was expecting, even though I can't really pinpoint what I was expecting. At any rate, if you're a Fat Cyclist reader and you haven't watched the video, you should definitely do it. I'd be interested to find out whether it had the same effect on anyone else.

Whew! Glad I made it into the maybe-meet-someday category! :) Ok, now I have to go listen to the Fat Cyclist!
